Primetime Show Reviews

Catherine Bell and Anthony Michael Hall

"Last Man Standing" review by Suzanne
Premieres Monday, June 6, at 8 pm ET/9 C on Lifetime

This was a fairly enjoyable movie. It has lots of action and interesting characters. It almost seemed like a pilot for a new TV show because it has so many popular TV actors, such as Catherine Bell (JAG), Mekhi Phifer (ER) and Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone).

Bell plays a former Special Forces war vet who has become a soccer mom.  One of her former team members dies, and then this big mystery from her past takes over her life. She has to fight against an unknown bad guy to protect her family as she tries to figure out this mystery.

I thought the first part of the movie was better than the second.  The first part was a good mystery, but it was pretty easy to figure out who the bad guy was after that.  There was a lot more action in the second part, but it got a little ridiculous and a bit too unbelievable to me.  Even though she's a forcer special forces agent, it just seemed too much, the stunts she was able to do, after so many years as a soccer mom.

The action and special effects were done very well. I especially liked the really cool computer screen and keyboard they had in this one scene.

It's not the worst movie, and I think most people will like it. It is just a bit uneven. I always love Anthony Michael Hall, and he is great in this.  Check it out!
