An ex military convict is recruited to rescue the President's son (actually not sure if he's the President, but some big shot nonetheless) and the nuclear launch device known as the "football". To do so she must battle futuristic Nazis and suffer degradation.

Alright, where do I begin? Gun battles staged and edited in such a way as to be incomprehensible, constant violation of the 360 rule, poor acting, clumsily staged action, complete lack of chemistry between any of the leads, and overall absence of logic. Stilted line delivery draws so much attention to itself as to be painful, almost as if the actors were reading a malfunctioning teleprompter. The film mixes boderline softcore scenes into the absurdity, leaving me to wonder who in Sam Hill the target audience is for this travesty. I respect filmmakers working in the confines of a minimal budget (this appears to have been filmed with "Fatal Conflict"), but unfortunately "Last Stand" only succeeds as an exercise in boredom.
