And to think, all this time I thought truckers just ate, showered and pooped at truck stops. But now that I’ve seen “Over the Top,” I know the truth: There’s mad arm wrestling going on in the trucker scene — or so Sylvester Stallone would have us believe.Stallone co-scripted this 1987 classic, which tells the […]

“Runaway Train” a good concept, average movie

The shortest way to review this movie would be to say that the idea of a movie starring Eric Roberts, Jon Voight and Rebecca De Mornay; directed by Andrei Konchalovsky, who helmed Tango and Cash; and was the inspiration for Speed and Speed 2: Cruise Control is much better than the actual film. But faced with that level of potential for the greatest, me and Joe set out to find this movie, which is no longer available on DVD or VHS.

Flashback:  Call to Action Movie Buffs

Today's Flashback epic takes us back to the infancy of the LAH: The Fall of 2004 when Joe and DRock talked about their rating system.

Neeson kicks ass, takes stuff without mercy

Don’t f*** with Liam Neeson. Just don’t. That’s more or less the central thesis of "Taken," which made its long-awaited (at least to the Last Action Heroes) move to DVD on Tuesday. Simply put, this movie is awesome. It’s a true action movie. There’s a clearly defined action star, some bad acting, an easy-to-follow plot and a small army of bad guys who get dead.

From here on out, every Friday will be “Flashback Fridays” where we pull out a vintage LAH column and bring it to life on the Internets.  Today, we bring to you the Spring 2005 Registration Issue of LAH.  Joe and DRock teamed up to review two awful action movies in “Full Clip” and “Strike Force.” […]
