I wonder why he dropped 'The Dragon'...

Ok. Let's make this quick. The Last Sentinel is a sci-fi action movie set in the nearish future. The United States became a police state, policed by drones. Cybernetically enhanced...cops...or something. I guess they started as people. They're more robot than human.

Don "no longer The Dragon" Wilson plays Tallis, a genetically enhanced soldier. The last of his kind. The others were wiped out in battles with the drones.

Katee Sackoff plays Starbuck. Except, she's not actually Starbuck. This isn't Battlestar. No, she plays...Girl. She is never given a name.

The last character is Tallis' gun. Which can talk. But not in that Sledgehammer kind of way. No, more like Cortana from Halo. It offers guidance and is essentially an A.I.

It's a post-apocolypic future...humans have been hunted to near extinction by cybernetically enhanced drones...but at least they still have vitamin water...

The story is fairly generic. It's not bad. It's not great. It's just what it is. A little sci-fi. A little action. A little Katee Sackhoff side-boob. It's entertaining enough to watch on a Saturday afternoon when there's nothing else going on. Don't go out of your way for this one is what I'm saying, I guess. On the other hand, if it's on, and you can't find the remote, it's not terrible. Drink some beer first though if you really want to feel the full effect of this one. 6 bottles of vitamin water out of 10.
