"The Last Hero of the Action" - the most underrated film by Schwarzenegger
Not exactly Schwarzenegger, but with Schwarzenegger, but we will not quibble. I think, I’m not the only one who considers this film to be the most underestimated in the career of a famous actor. A brilliant parody of both the action movie genre itself and its characters. And with what self-irony Arnie played!
The fact that he failed at the box office was not the fault of the film, but rather the lack of a sense of humor among the critics who smashed the film as soon as it came out on the screens. Hollywood did not like the irony of themselves. At that time, there were a lot of parody films - “Airplane”, “Naked Gun”, “Hot Heads”. And "The Last Hero of an Action Movie," in my opinion, is no worse, and sometimes better. The film is crammed with references and easter eggs to other films that look non-natively, but very funny woven into the plot.
The difficulty is that only the viewer who has revised a huge number of action films and police films of the 80s and 90s can understand the whole share of the irony invested by the authors in the film.
