Arnold Schwarzenegger has headed back to top billing on the big screen from the world of politics in his new action movie 'The Last Stand'. He reflected on how life as Governor of California compared with acting in big-budget movies. SOUNDBITE: Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, saying (English): "In politics, you're a public servant, you serve the people with policy and all that. When you do acting you entertain people. So you have the responsibility of when you go and do a movie, when you analyse the script, how do you do it so you can entertain people young and old, Americans, Germans, Italians, Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Africans and everybody, so you have to think about that because your responsibility is to entertain the world, those are the similarities. The only difference is that here you get a lot of money and in politics you get none." In the movie, Schwarzenegger plays a small-town sheriff and retired LAPD officer, trying to prevent a fugitive drug-cartel boss from crossing through his town to get to the Mexican border. Despite the 65-year-old former bodybuilder's age, the film does not let up on the action and is chock-full of car chases, gunfights, crashes and explosions. And, in the words of South Korean director Kim Jee Woon, we stiill get to see Arnold kicking some butt. That should certainly keep the fans happy.
