This was a terrible movie, but I knew that going in - I only wanted to see it for Katee. The special effects were sloppy, the acting was either wooden or over the top cheesy (though I thought Katee did okay with what little she was given), and I never did figure out what the point of the war was. In the right hands, this could have been at least a decent movie, but in this case, it was just bad.

I must admit, I ordered this thinking the blondini was the so hot/cold professional from CSI. Well, no such luck..but...I watched this twice. Has elements of the usual femme hero(ine)story line. And again a ..but.., some form of viscaral enjoyment. Maybe that is what is meant as 'you go girl'. After a couple of glasses/portions of your favorite 'relax-and-watch' drug of choice...you'll like this.

"The Last Sentinel (which originally debuted on the Sci-Fi channel) is another run-of-the-mil post-apocalyptic action flick, which places too much emphasis on flimsy action sequences & cheap thrills and little elsewhere. Muddy cinematography (apparent poor lighting on sets, which not even the editing could conceal), bad acting and horrific choreography (writer/director Jesse Johnson, whose done stunt work on such films as Beowulf, MI3 and T3 should be ashamed). In fact, the best fight sequence in the entire movie is the final showdown at the end of the film (which isn't saying much at all). Mainly due to that fact that it doesn't consist of a guns blazing shooting spree like all of it's other battles.
Don "The Dragon" Wilson (the movie's protagonist) muffs his lines throughout the majority of the film. He looks bored and expressionless, as if he cannot wait for the filming to be over (who can blame him?). The character development between Wilson's character (Tallis) and Katee Sackhoff's (whose character's name just so happens to be named "Girl," how original) is poorly conceived. It's far too overtly contrived to be taken remotely seriously. Very little comes out of it.
Speaking of little, very little comes out of the film. Everything done in this film has been done a gazillion times before, and quite frankly, the movie isn't even that entertaining. The story and characters are entirely forgettable. They were just doomed from the beginning. Not even Keith David's appearance could save it (the movie).
There are so many great sci-fi action flicks out there that should never have to settle for The Last Sentinel (it's quite baffling how a film of this calibre gets a Blu Ray release). So, do yourself a favor and skip over this one. Wilson fans at least expecting some action on par with his Bloodfist films, may want to steer clear as well. As they will be left woefully disappointed.
This would have scored a star had Katee Sackhoff not been pleasing on the eyes. Might I add, she's not the main star of the film like the dvd cover attempts to have one believe.
Bad post-apocalyptic action

"Don Wilson plays an "electronically enhanced" soldier fighting evil police drones in a post-apocalyptic future. But most of the time is spent with him walking around not doing much at all. Writer-director Jesse Johnson did not do a good job either as a writer or director. The script lacks direction and focus and the movie looks cheap. This could have been excused if the movie had been fun, but it's not. Not recommended."

"Katee Sackhoff has become one of my favorite tough girls. Starbuck, Bionic Woman v1 both were great roles for a beautiful tough sci-fi girl...So I when I found "The Last Sentinel" I was excited with hopes to find an unknown treasure of a sleeper. Unfortunately, this was almost (but not quite)as bad as sci-fi gets.
The plot was terrible, the story terrible, the acting mostly bad, the special effects were almost not existent... But at least it had Katee Sackhoff, which raised it one *
Here's the deal... Pass on this!
