| Not A Promising Start for Arnie
After working my way through Sly Stallones filmography. I decided to do the same with Arnold Schwarzenegger. First up is Hercules In New York

Plot In A Paragraph: Hercules (Arnie) is sent to Earth, where he finds true love and starts a career in the bodybuilder business.

In his feature film debut, Arnie is billed as Arnold Strong in the movie's credits, The DVD obviously has Schwarzenegger in huge letters across the top, and his voice is dubbed.

The premise behind Hercules in New York is certainly strong enough to carry a movie, especially a comedy like this one, but it's very cheaply made, the scene with Hercules fighting a grizzly bear has to be seen to be believed, and no matter how bad the performance, everything seems to be the only take they filmed.

Arnold Stang gives your typical comedians acting performance and Deborah Loomis is quite cute. I know it's Arnie's first movie, but he is awful. There is not one scene where there is any hint at a successful acting career in his future.

Since the US production company went bankrupt, the movie was never released in theatres.

In his Autobiography Total Recall, Arnie recalls how he was thrilled to be paid $1,000 a week for his work on the movie, and best of all, he sent a photograph home to his parents saying "You see? I told you this was going to work. I came to America, won Mr. Universe, and now I'm in the movies."

3/10
