The Last Sentinel (2007) Directed by Jesse V Johnson. With Don ‘ The Dragon’ Wilson, Katee Sackhoff, Keith David, Steven Bauer and Dawnn Lewis.
Don Wilson drops ‘The Dragon‘ from his name credit for his starring role in this deafening sci-fi action romp. The bad news is, he’s still the same old vacant screen presence that we know and don’t love.
Don plays some kind of battle-worn soldier, fighting a rebellious cause against a ruthlessly aggressive police force, who incidentally, all look like extras from Mike Hodges’ Flash Gordon. Surprisingly, given the sheer awfulness of the production, Don is supported by recognised actors, namely Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff – clearly directed to repeat her performance as Starbuck – and Keith David, who appears in washed out flashbacks.
I could summarise The Last Sentinel by calling it a ninety-three minute headache. It’s consistently loud and lacks any kind of wit or intelligence. Sackhoff, through no fault of her own, struggles to find any harmony with Wilson and when the final credits roll, don’t be surprised to find yourself scrambling for the pain killers. 1.5/5
