3.0 out of 5 stars Average compilation Nov. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
More of a compilation than an actual soundtrack, this soundtrack to Last Action Hero features mostly bands from the 80's and a few questionable tunes, but all together this isn't a bad disc. It's worth the price alone for the Alice in Chains' songs "What the Hell Have I?" and "A Little Bitter", plus arguably one of Megadeth's best songs in "Angry Again", plus the tracks from Def Leppard, AC/DC, Anthrax, and even Cypress Hill are worth noting as well. However, I could have done without Tesla, or Queensryche's overblown cover of "Real World", and there's no reason to see Aerosmith's "Dream On" on here either. All in all, this isn't a half bad compilation, just don't expect anything too special from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this soundtrack June 15 2003

Format:Audio CD
Anyone who listens to Eziekiel whatever probly has as much of a one track Seattle mind as he does. From his mentions of Black Hole Sun to his ravings about AIC, we can tell that's the ONLY music he listens to. Well guess where Queensryche hails from? I like Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and Mother Love Bone, but anyone who obssesses themselves with only Seattle music is very ignorant to other music.
First off, if you don't like Dream On then quit reading on. It's one of the greatest classic rock songs ever. Big Gun is like a classic AC/DC song from back in 1980. Megadeth's Angry Again is totally killer and heavy. Queensryche's Real World and Def Leppard's Two Steps Behind are both awesome ballads. Two Steps Behind being my favorite song since the material on Pyromania. Poison My Eyes sounds a lot like the other stuff off of Sound of White Noise by Anthrax but is a lot better. The two Alice in Chains songs are good, but not as good as Two Steps Behind or Angry Again. They coulda picked a better Cypress Hill song though. I don't concern myself with Fishbone or Tesla. Jack the Ripper is a pretty decent song too.<

4.0 out of 5 stars Underappreciated due to the movie's reputation July 14 2000
By Zagnorch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although 'Last Action Hero' was a box-office tanker (I didn't think it was half-bad myself, but that's neither here nor there), it did have a soundtrack that contained some of the most rockin' tunes this side of 'Private Parts'.
Sadly, due to the film's box-office misfortune, the soundtrack usually gets the short shrift as well. An unfortunate thing, because there's more than a few tracks on this CD by some notable names in alternative and metal that rival some of their own better-known licks. 'Angry Again' managed to replace 'Symphony of Destruction' as my fave Megadeth cut. AC/DC's 'Big Gun' sounds a lot like many of their other tunes, but is also memorable. Also good are Alice In Chains's 'What The Hell Have I', and Cypress Hill's 'Cock The Hammer' (it's one of the few Cypress Hill raps I've listened to where they don't mention the use of marijuana!). Tracks by Anthrax and Def Leppard are there to enjoy as well.
So take a chance... you just might be very surprised by how good a soundtrack from a 'bad' movie can be!

4.0 out of 5 stars The 90's Bidding Farewell To The 80's Aug. 12 2008
By Dana E. McIntyre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
1993's "Last Action Hero" was our current California governor's (Au-nold!) big-budget, box-office dud about an big-screen action star introduced to the "real world" when a young boy who idolizes him uses a magic ticket as an entry point into his latest film. The soundtrack was a tribute album of sorts to late-80's hair metal as hard rock was continuing is transition into the alternative era. Alice In Chains' dual appearance (the outstanding "What The Hell Have I" and the equally good "A Little Bitter"), Fishbone (the stripped-down riff rocker "Swim"), and even Cypress Hill's track ("Cock The Hammer") lended creedence to music's new rock craze ushered in by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and AIC themselves.

The remaining bands on here are all straight out of the late-80's, big-hair, hard rock/metal scene and a few shine on their best moments, like Megadeth ("Angry Again"), Queensryche (who blend their sound with Micheal Kamen's orchestra on "Real World", although an argument could be made they were actually a 90's act), Anthrax (their seven-minute hard rock epic "Poison My Eyes"), and Def Leppard (their wonderful acoustic-guitar ballad "Two Steps Behind"). All of these are great tracks that make this soundtrack worth keeping even if the movie (which was good for my liking; my big compliant was it's a bit too long) was a drag at best for most.

I recently did a list of my personal picks for the Top 20 Soundtracks Of The 90's and I gave this one an "Honorable Mention". Why? Tesla's overbearing, echoing title track and Aerosmith's live version of "Dream On" (which was from MTV's 10th Anniversary special), while good, ultimately blew its chance to rank among my Top 20. Nonetheless, the blend of 80's metal and 90's alternative made for such a consistently solid effort, it deserves to be look upon as a potential period piece.

The rock acts that defined the 80's put forth their best efforts and the new faces of the 90's provided a taste of what was to come. Overall, the soundtrack to "Last Action Hero" was an fitting and bittersweet farewell to what has now become our time's most reflected decade and continued alternative rock's growth into its expanded new sound. - DEM -

Key Tracks: "What The Hell Have I", "Angry Again", "Two Steps Behind", "A Little Bitter", "Real World", "Poison My Eyes".

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrible movie, great soundtrack Aug. 20 2010
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What is it about the late `80s and early `90s pairing crappy action movies with killer hard rock soundtracks? Iron Eagle, Navy Seals and perhaps the mother of them all Last Action Hero.

Featuring artists as varied as classic rock icons AC/DC and Aerosmith to thrash metal heroes Megadeth and Anthrax to hair metal bands Def Leppard and Tesla to alternative acts like Alice in Chains and Fishbone and even rappers Cypress Hill, this soundtrack is a brilliant snapshot of that brief moment when mainstream metal and alternative rock peacefully coexisted (see also: Airheads). It didn't last, obviously, but at least we have relics like this soundtrack.

Of course it helps that the music is (mostly) really good. OK, the Def Leppard track is way wimpy, but the Alice in Chains, Anthrax and Megadeth tracks destroy, Queensryche's "Real World" is pretty epic, and how great is that symphonic version of "Dream On?" If you love late `80s and early `90s hard rock and heavy metal, the Last Action Hero soundtrack is an essential purchase.

If you have seen the movie you may probably think "Mmm, if the movie sucks, so does de soundtrack" but not this one. In this movies de soundtrack its better than the movie. It has AC/DC, Megadeth, Aerosmith, Anthrax, Alice in chains, etc. I love this disc. Its a great record...but nothing can be completely perfect...the only song I dont like (hate) its song 10. It souldnt be on the CD. Bypassing that, the disc is awesome, its a must-buy.

Loved the movie and needed to have the soundtrack. There are some really good songs on there that don't get to hear often.
