Last Action Hero | 1993 | PG-13 | - 1.6.4

Fantasy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a movie hero who's never had to lose a battle on the big screen until he is transported into the real world .

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Just some scantily clad women, one kiss and a few sexual references.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - While most of the film maintains a tongue-in-cheek tone, and it is relatively low on gore (there are few scenes where blood is visible), countless people do die, by various means: some fall to their deaths, some are shot, some are pummeled, kicked, punched or stabbed to death and many more are blown up. One character has been apparently tortured off screen; he's shown tied up, looking bloody and bruised. Another scene involves some slapstick clowning with a corpse, and there's an ax-wielding villain who looks quite scary. Particularly disturbing may be one scene where a boy is hand-cuffed to a pipe by a burglar, after being threatened with a knife.

LANGUAGE 4 - Some scatological language, some cussing and a few lewd anatomical references. The F-word is very obliquely implied but not uttered.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Truancy, crime.

MESSAGE - Fantasy is distinct from reality; one should live in the real world.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
