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.<

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.

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 its 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".

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!

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.

5 Stars alone go to MEGADETH !!! Oct. 11 2006
By Electro-Industrial madness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Megadeth song Angry Again is a good enough reason to buy this CD. I'm not a huge Megadeth fan, but that song is awesome. I can listen to it all day. It is for me the best Last Action Hero song and makes me think of the movie. Other good songs are the Alice In Chains song What The Hell Have I , which has some excellent music, again I'm not a big fan of AIC either, actually haven't heard much of them, anyway the song is cool and reminisent to the movie. Big Gun by AC/DC is ofcourse quitye good too, but nothing can top Megadeth-Angry Again !

The Fishbone song is also pretty good too.

The song by Anthrax is actually listenable and an amazing achievment for them. Actually the whole cd has I think the best song ever made by these bands featured (even if they were made specifically for the movie). It's like I never liked these bands that much except Megadeth, but here on this complilation they seem like pretty good bands (even Anthrax). Aerosmith makes a clssic for the movie aswell. And Def Leppard are one of the legends from the 80's which I never listened to, it's a soft song but suits the movie. The Queensryche songs is not bad either. Never heard of Tesla but they sound like Faith No More in their early days, not bad. And the last track which is by Michael Kamen And The Rock And Roll Ensemble Featuring Buckethead is a good song and is something different aswell.

So overall, I'd say this cd is definetely worth having if you liked the Last Action Hero movie, yes the movie was a bit dodgy, but that's what I like about it.
A bit of a gem Nov. 28 2006
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this soundtrack because it had a lot of big names in it that had recording songs specifically for the film. I love queensryche and Megadeth and was pleased to find that both songs by these artists were just what I'd expect, excellent quality and well produced. Especially the atmospheric 'Real world' by queensryche which was more reminiscent of the later half of their empire album, which in my opinion was queensryche at their best. I have to argue with the people who say that this album sounds too 80s, because it doesnt at all. The bands most popular in the early 90's such as Def Leppard, megadeth, Queensryche and Areosmith are on here because this soundtrack is made in the early 90's! It does boast a lot of early 90's 'hair metal' material, but it also has a mix of more heavier rock with Anthrax and Alice in chains, and a little of alternative rap or something along those lines. Some of the songs aren't great, but overall the album has a good sound to it and is just what you'd expect from an early 90's action movie soundtrack. Megadeth does it again with another hardrocking made for soundtrack effort. Def Leppard also produces a nice acoustic ballard that really shows their musical maturity during the early to mid 90's. Alice in chains were lucky enough to get two songs on there, both of them reasonably good, but a bit of a step away from their earlier stuff. The main theme by telsa really sells the early 90's hair rock image of the album, but really gives a feeling of nostalgia for the film. Buckethead makes a guest appearance on the last track just to top the album off. Its a fairly decent album, but only worth buying if you can get it cheap I think. If your looking for a great hard rocking soundtrack I recomend Bill and Teds Bogus journey soundtrack.
