Not very good, and biased...
9 December 2009 | by NoirXephonSee all my reviews

The primary issue with this movie is the inherent bias contained within it. It is clear throughout the movie what the director thinks about Arnold, and his political position. Even those who are a fan of the "governator" can clearly see the skew within this movie (especially since it is absolutely against him).

I am not the biggest fan of Arnold, but I expected a movie that followed his progression from young boy in Austria, eventually to the governorship of the 5th largest economy in the world. Instead, this movie plagued me with a slew of propaganda against the man. I have no personal interest in the man myself, but I was interested to learn more of his past and his movement into the political field. Ultimately, this movie provided a little insight into this, but mostly just took a totally biased view, with the intent to influence the audience.

I understand it is difficult to create a documentary without some bias, but it is the filmmaker's duty to create a movie to remove as much bias as possible. This filmmaker does little to hide the fact that he thinks of Arnold as a sham and little more than the devil incarnate. The ultimate goal of a documentary is to provide the facts, without bias (or as much as possible), and leave it to the audience to make their own decision. This film fails in this regard, and in many others as well.
