** The movie's entire soundtrack qualifies, but standout examples would be [[Music/AliceInChains What the Hell Have I, A Little Bitter]], [[Music/{{ACDC}} Big Gun]], and [[Music/{{Anthrax}} Poison in my Eyes.]] The soundtrack to this film has actually become something of a collector's item for fans of hard rock and heavy metal.

* WhatMightHaveBeen: Benedict was originally intended to be Creator/AlanRickman - a line in the shooting script has Danny warn Jack that he almost beat both [[Film/DieHard Bruce Willis]] and [[Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves Kevin Costner]].

* VindicatedByHistory: When the film was released, it was panned by critics and was a box office flop. But in the years since then, opinions of the film have softened somewhat. Many people now regard it as an enjoyable parody of action movies from the 1980s and 1990s, and it has even managed to achieve CultClassic status.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Believe it or not, the film's plot is taken from the ''Series/AmazingStories'' episode, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZS3EO_7cy4 Welcome to My Nightmare]]".

* SpecialEffectsFailure:
** The launcher that rockets the cop car in the air during the house explosion is clearly visible, as it falls to the ground.
** Jack Slater's game of chicken in the real world also has a rather visible tow cable laying across the alley floor.
* RetroactiveRecognition: At the time ''Last Action Hero'' was made, Charles Dance (Mr. Benedict) was most well known for serious drama films, and he had an extremely limited presence in genre films. (in fact the novelization of the film, based on an earlier script, seems to indicate they were planning to cast William Atherton from ''Die Hard'' and ''Ghostbusters'' instead). Nowadays, after the runaway success of ''Game of Thrones'' and Dance's memorable role as Tywin Lannister, he's a lot more recognizable to a mainstream audience viewing this film.



** Averted for the [[Pinball/LastActionHero pinball,]] which is well-regarded for its deep rules, great music, and nonstop action.
