The writing is pretty good and the story interesting. Bruce Willis has a nice performance here, and Christopher Walken is plenty scary with a strong performance as well. There is just enough Hollywood to make the story without killing it. One of the things that I am very impressed by is reloading... We does see a lot of that in Hollywood movies, this one does a good job of keeping track of bullet count and making sure that the actors reload their weapons. props to the directing and cutting room for making sure that it fits.

There are plenty of weak points in the movie too ... with our hero getting his cheeks and more than a few ribs broken, and getting up and fighting some more, but like Rocky we need to give them some leeway here, and like Rambo we have to forgive our hero for taking a few bullets and staying on his feet.

Good film, worth a watch, but I'm not sure it is a make room for it on your shelf for a long stay kind of film.

Enjoyed movie very much. Not great art, but performances are good, script is decent & story is fun. A slight cut above typical Bruce Willis action flick

Bruce Willis gives another spine tingling performance as a gun slinging hot shot. He plays a good guy and a bad guy all at the same time. This one is great.

A novel take on a classic movie
C. Han | East Lansing, MI | 10/22/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Akira Kurosawa's film "Yojimbo" is a cinematic masterpiece, and in the time it came out, Westerns and Samurai movies were practically one in the same. Consider "Seven Samurai" and "The Magnificent Seven" both excellent films in their own right. Similary, "Yojimbo" was remade into the classic Spaghetti western, "A Fistful of Dollars" with Clint Eastwood. It's with this remarkable history that "Last Man Standing" was made.If you know the story fo Fistful of Dollars or Yojimbo, it becomes clear that this is a role that Willis is well-suited for. He plays a man passing through a town in the middle of nowhere, and the town's split between two rival crime families. As a man skilled with guns, he plays the families off of each other to make a buck, but can't help getting pulled into the dilemmas of this little town.If you loved Yojimbo or Fistful, and don't want to see this movie out of fear that it will ruin the story, I would put those fears to bed. This movie takes a novel and more modern approach to the story, and Willis adds his own flavor to the 'man with no name.' Of course, I liked Yojimbo more. But Last Man Standing is a good film in its own right, with a good performance by Willis and excellent performances by Chris Walken, Bruce Dern, and William Sanderson. The gunfights in this movie are enjoyable, but unrealistic in a sort of John Woo/Killer/Hard-Boiled style. So, if you're interested in seeing a reworking of a classic movie, or if you just want to see a good shoot-em-up, this movie fits the bill."
Good stuff
Cryptopsy | Springfield, Mo USA | 10/06/2004

"Okay let me get this clear, I have this wierd obsession of gunfighting, not just gun fighting, but to be more specific dual weapon gunfights. A gun for each hand, to me that is the pinnacle of badass. When I see a action movie I don't care about explosions, attractive women, or stupid car chases. I hate all that garbage American directors throw in thier films. I wanna see gritty no holds gunfighting. I enjoy either a realistic gun battle (Way of the gun, Heat, etc...) or all out unrealistic (The Killer, Hard Boiled, The Matrix, etc...) So combine the gritty dirt quality, with Bruce Willis only fighting with two pistols, and lack of explosions, you can understand why I enjoy this movie. One thing this movie has, that is not used enough in action movies is the depressing voice over, like in the video game Max Payne. That game would make a damn fine movie."
Probably one of the best remakes
TrezKu13 | Norfolk, VA | 10/07/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo" has seen a lot of remakes done to it over the past 40 years. Some of them have been good ("A Fistful of Dollars") and some of been bad ("Omega Doom"). On the other hand, "Last Man Standing" probably stands out among them all for its interpretation of the film into more modern settings.Toshiro Mifune is replaced by Bruce Willis, and while Bruce Willis is no Toshiro Mifune, his character doesn't really call for a Mifune-like role. His serious, sarcastic character enters a bordertown in Texas ravaged by two gangs, one Irish the other Italian, much like the two merchants in the original. The roles are nearly picture perfect remakes, with the exception being the role of the "wife" on one of the warring sides being made more of a victim than a contender. However, the one that ranks among them all is Christopher Walken as Hickey, who is almost a perfectly Americanized version of Nasuke. Some of his lines, such as "Can he beat this?" or "Stick around, there's more" are almost directly taken from "Yojimbo." Nasuke's revolver is replaced by Hickey's tommy gun.Its not an outstanding film and if you don't like guns-blazing action you probably won't like this, but if you do this will definately be your cup of tea. This is as close to John Woo (in his Chinese days) as I've seen most American films get. Bruce Willis having to reload his guns after emptying fifteen bullets on two guys only adds to the realism.Do I like Yojimbo better? Well, of course, but do I think this is a bad movie? Of course not. And as a remake it certainly excels among others that I have seen, Yojimbo or otherwise."
