1/4 

This is such a sad and dreary movie where only the villains get to have any fun and they obtain it by cutting off women's ears and terrorizing hapless Mexicans. Bruce Willis plays his typical "strong stoic" type to the point of self-parody but I'll admit he does look like a bad-ass in a fedora while wielding M1911 pistols. "Last Man Standing" could have been a good gangster movie in the tradition of the spaghetti westerns that obviously inspired it but alas, it's too focused on presenting itself as a hard-boiled homage instead of an actual movie.

Last Man Standing review

John Smith (Bruce Willis) arrives in Jericho and is harassed by gang members. After a scuffle, he is hired by gang head Strozzi (Ned Eisenberg). Another gang leader named Doyle (David Patrick Kelly) wants to recruit Smith. Stories about Hickey (Christopher Walken) were told to John. Spectacular cinematography, detailed storytelling, apt score and solid screenplay from the director (Kikushima and Kurosawa were credited since this is an official Yojimbo remake). Some noteworthy quotes from Smith - "She was just trying to make a living in a world where big fish eat little fish." "People don't own other people." "But something would turn up. It always does." "No matter how low you sink there's still a right and wrong. You always end up choosing." Action sequences reminded me of The Ki...

"Last Man Standing" by Yojimbo

A drifter stumbles onto a border town that's being controller by two rival bootlegging gangs during the prohibition era. Last Man Standing is quite a frustrating film because it so very nearly works. Yet another remake of Yojimbo (just how many of them are there out there?) it sets the classic story in the context of Tommy gun toting gangsters in a marriage of the styles of the western and film noir, which is actually a great idea. Willis has his usual presence as the stone-faced and amoral protagonist and the supporting cast has great turns by Bruce Dern and Christopher Walken who puts in a typically memorable and eccentric performance. Add some well choreographed shoot outs from Peckinpah padawan Walter Hill and you have a recipe for success, but somehow it doesn't quite fit together. T...
