Last week I went to see the new Arnold Schwarzenegger film the Last Stand. Now don’t worry this isn’t a review of the film, Arnie’s suffered enough. This will be a comment on the cars used in the film in particular a modified Corvette ZR1 and Camaro ZL1.
In the film the Corvette used by the bad guy Gabriel Cortez is stated to be a modified ZR1 with over 1000 horse power, nothing wrong with that. The ZR1 is black and the makers steal an idea from the Batman films, in that when being chased by a helicopter at night they simply turn their lights off and pull out of the spotlight and become invisible.
My biggest problem with the film is the chase at the end. Bad guy in the Corvette goes up against Arnie in a Camaro ZL1. The fact that the Camaro ZL1 couldn’t keep up with the standard ZR1, which they seem to forget, Also this magic Camaro can not only keep up with the ZR1 but can actually keep up after its been smashed up by the bad guys Corvette.
I know there is an element of movie magic in this film but overall I liked it. Arnie is back at his best and Jonny Knoxville plays his standard slightly crazy village idiot. This film has its good points and bad points. The fact that they seem to only have Chevy’s is one bad point. But overall the film is good.
