Arnold Review 2023 Tv Show Series Cast Crew Online
Arnold Schwarzenegger may have achieved much in his careers as an athlete, actor, or politician. The absolute highlight of his life, however, must have been the moment he was named Netflix ‘s Chief Action Officer in late May this year , a title that makes all his other accolades and accomplishments look like certificates of attendance. Of course, this is just as non-serious as the position itself, which was only created as part of the Fubar marketing campaign. The fictional series is not the only collaboration between the governor and the streaming platform. Actually, it would almost have been expected that the Arnoldnot a documentary series, but reality TV. Fubar seemed to be Schwarzenegger’s answer to Tulsa King with Sylvester Stallone , after all. The old rival also has his say in the course of Arnold , but just presented it again in mid-May with The Family Stallone on Paramount+
However, Arnold does not accompany the native Austrian through his everyday life, but draws a portrait of his career. Each of the three one-hour episodes focuses on one of the jobs mentioned at the beginning. The first episode appropriately starts at the beginning, giving a rough overview of how and where Arnie grew up. The small community of Thal in Styria is an unlikely place to produce one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time. Lifting weights and building muscles was something completely un-Austrian anyway, Arnold’s father would have preferred the boy to do something decent in terms of sport, such as football or skiing. The whole thing is narrated by Schwarzenegger himself, mostly accompanied by archive footage or reenacted scenes. His companions also have their say, but rather sporadically. Who the recommended autobiographyTotal recall: Anyone who has read The True Story of My Life or otherwise acquired knowledge about the man will hardly learn anything new in Arnold . In this respect, however, the mini-series is quite suitable as a compendium. Even with well-founded previous knowledge, the acquired knowledge can be refreshed here.
If you are not only a Schwarzenegger fan, but also or mainly a film fan (it can be assumed that readers of this page are among them), the second episode will probably be of most interest to you. Already at the end of the first one , James Cameron lets us know that Arnie told him that he didn’t want to be an actor, he wanted to be a star. That’s a pretty reasonable goal given his limited talent and big ambitions. It might have seemed megalomaniac at the time, but having achieved it, there’s no denying that Arnold Schwarzenegger is a star. His physical appearance suited him well for the role of Heracles – a role Reg Park had played years earlierembodied that inspired Arnie into bodybuilding in the first place. Hercules in New York marked his acting debut in 1970. The documentary Pumping Iron , which has become a cult classic , was released in 1977, accompanying him on his way to the Mr. Olympia and bringing bodybuilding closer to a wide audience.
Otherwise, the 1970s were not particularly kind to him. It’s the time of Dustin Hoffman , Al Pacino —shorter men whose biceps don’t need a wide-angle lens (and who can act, too). Schwarzenegger may have accomplished a lot, but what really sets him apart is his unwillingness or inability to give up. Nobody has to like circumstances that keep them from doing anything, but like Bruce Lee , Arnie has preferred to force the world to heed him – with achievements, not with the internet (or whatever the equivalent of that was at the time, maybe sending telegrams) whining about how mean everything would be.
In the second episode, Schwarzenegger shares a little fun fact about OJ Simpson ( The Naked Gun ) that even has the crew behind the camera laughing. Arnold is of course not a neutral documentation, but as mentioned a portrait. Almost a self-portrait thanks to Schwarzenegger’s story. Of course there is no lying here, but the brush captures a thoroughly benevolent image on the canvas. That’s perfectly fine too. 75 years of such an eventful life as the one that Schwarzenegger has led so far cannot be squeezed into three hours. But if you want a rough overview or a summary of the highlights, you’ve come to the right place.
The mini-series “Arnold” is just right for all Arnie fans and those who want to become one. For those in the know, there is little new here and the documentary only focuses on positive aspects of his life as a bodybuilder, actor and politician. Nevertheless, it is an ideal introduction for anyone interested or a compact summary for fans.
