Critical Look at Arnold's Run For Governor
2 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A documentary on Arnold Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial campaign in California.

What makes Arnold's run interesting is that the governor's seat was the first elected office he held. Although, he was appointed by President George H.W. Bush to the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, in which he served from 1990 to 1993 and was Chairman of California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports under Governor Pete Wilson.

At this point, the film serves as a bit of a history lesson. I had no idea that Dee Snider helped campaign for Arnold, and had completely forgotten the claim of Nazi ties and sympathies, though I could not forget his misogyny issues.

This was clearly a "hatchet job" and there must be redeeming qualities to a man who was elected twice. So to call this a documentary when no pro-Arnold people could be found would be unfair. Still a piece of history, but hardly fair.
