Comment: Re: SHK 14.0334 Shakespop
Did anyone mention "Last Action Hero". The film starts with Arnold
Schartzenagger as an action hero Hamlet. He tosses the skull aside and
blows up the castle; helicopters and gun galore. It's the only part of
the film which is fun. Arnold always has a strain of irony running
through his flicks even at their most puerile.
