Exclusive The Last Stand Bonus Clip Shows How Action Transcends Language
The Last Stand is famous for being former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s big return to film as a leading man. Although we did catch Schwarzenegger in The Expendables and The Expendables 2, in The Last Stand, the focus is mostly on the veteran action hero. However, Schwarzenegger is not the hero of this exclusive Blu-ray bonus clip. Instead, director Kim Ji-Woon is.
The South Korean director has found success with films like A Tale of Two Sisters and A Bittersweet Life, but his first film in the US—and in English—is The Last Stand. In the clip, the actors and Ji-Woon both speak about the language barrier that was present during filming, as well as how the actors were usually able to understand the director’s intent, even if he wasn’t speaking in English. It seems wild to think an entire movie could be accomplished with a language barrier, but The Last Stand is actually a pretty solid, albeit ridiculously premised, action film.
If you haven’t caught the film, it actually hits digital download, today, with a Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD release following a little later, on May 21. Deleted and alternate scenes will be available with the purchases, as will five other featurettes, including a “Making of” segment the above clip hails from. You can check out the full list of bonus features, give the digital download release a shot, today, or pre-order a hard copy over at Amazon.
