This biographical docu-drama alternates between two parallel threads in the life of Arnold Schwarzenegger: his formative early years as the repeat winner of the Mr. Olympia body-building championship; and his modern foray into the world of politics, hitting the campaign trail and competing in the frenzied atmosphere that accompanied California's chaotic recall election.

Roland Kickinger would later take over Arnold Schwarzenegger's role as The Terminator in Terminator Salvation (2009). However, his body would only be recognizable from the neck down, as his face was replaced with a digital copy of a young Schwarzenegger's face, taken from a make-up cast made for the original film.

Sergio Oliva
9 April 2011 | by (America) – See all my reviews

This movie is such propaganda and a deliberate re-write of the history of Arnold and his past defeats and victories. The very fact that they could have made this movie without the mention or inclusion of Arnold's greatest competition Sergio Oliva, is proof that they wanted to elevate Arnold to a position of which he was not worthy in historical rankings.

It would be like making a movie about boxer Muhammad Ali, and never mentioning or showing a portrayal of George Foremen! I am aware that the movie isn't about Sergio Oliva, however, Sergio was so much of a force in Arnold's life and his most celebrated victories, that Sergio's omission here is as noticeable as a movie about the life of The Beatles, in which they leave out 3 of the Beatles!

Such an injustice. And Arnold and his family had political and artistic control over this movie. It is no wonder why Arnold excelled in politics. It takes a calculating individual who's morals and ethics have no boundaries, to rise to the top of this worlds most corrupt occupation.

Half of this country does not believe that President Obama is worthy of being President of this country. Yet, we had a man, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who became Governor, and can't even pronounce the name of the state! And and American people fell for it. So, See Arnold Run, and See America Ruined!
