Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Above Average "..a grimly watchable yet sodden prison melodrama.. the drama has all the subtlety and surprise of a showdown between the sissy-bully son of Captain Queeg and a hero who's like a fusion of Brubaker, Spartacus, and Norma Rae.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "..a rousing adventure film that entertains despite a raft of plot implausibilities. The movie is involving in a way that makes suspension of disbelief easy - you don't start to question the likelihood of what happens until the end credits have finished.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "The immediate experience of watching "The Last Castle" is strongly involving, and the action at the end, exciting. It's the kind of movie people tell you they saw last night and really liked. I really liked it last night, too. It's only this morning that I'm having trouble with it.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "..an implausible script. Hefty star power is wasted in this overheated drama.. They may call it The Last Castle, but moviegoers will ultimately feel rooked.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

VERY HIGH OPINIONS!! A GREAT movie. Most moviegoers LOVED "The Last Castle." With virtually no low opinions, I CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE LAST CASTLE to everyone. It has very wide appeal.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
GREAT! Very Entertaining! I enjoyed this movie very much and I feel confident the average moviegoer will enjoy it as much as I did. Two adult females and a young teen female also viewed the movie with me and they all enjoyed it so I believe it will have wide appeal. SEE IT!

The only negative thing is that the story does have some problems with believability. Several times things happen a little too coincidentally just so the story can proceed the way the writers wanted. Another example is a large and violent helicopter crash, full of fire, where the pilot walks away with a few scratches.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The Castle—the unlikely last stop in the brilliant career of three star General Irwin (Robert Redford). Court-martialed and stripped of his rank, Irwin has been sentenced to the maximum security military prison, which is run with an iron fist by its warden, Colonel Winter (James Gandolfini). Winter can't help but respect the once-legendary general, but it isn't long before that respect turns to resentment and then open hostility as Irwin continually confronts the warden on his methods. Setting out to break Irwin by whatever means necessary, the colonel's tactics only fuel Irwin's defiance and galvanize the other prisoners to rally behind the general in his new mission: to seize control of the prison and remove Winter from his command. The men imprisoned in The Castle have been told that they are no longer soldiers.. . but they are about to prove that they can still fight a war.
