The Terminator star recalls how he took his first big box office flop after the release of Last Action Hero.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is an inspiring person for many reasons: he has succeeded as an actor, in the bodybuilding and went Governor of California two terms in a row. However, even a successful man like him hits a bump in the road.
the race as actor of Schwarzenegger has never been focused on award seasons, but to make him a star who starred in blockbusters. James Cameron gave him many of them, like Terminator and its sequel or Risky lies.
These are the best tablets for watching movies and series
If you usually watch series when you travel or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
Precisely, after touching the sky with Terminator 2: The Last Judgment, the Austrian actor filmed last great heroa meta film directed by John McTiernan (Die Hard) and co-written by Shane Black (Lethal weapon).
The Last Great Hero was a critical and box office flop —although around here we found it most entertaining, by the way. The target cinema did not work at that time and the blow was too hard for the good “Chuache”, which fell apart.
You won’t often see Arnold Schwarzenegger depressed
The setback was such that the actor spent a week isolated, assimilating the “shameful” defeat. That’s how he and he remembered it James Cameron in Arnold, the documentary Netflix about Schwarzenegger’s three great professional victories.
“You can’t imagine how upset he was. It hurts. It hurts you inside. It’s embarrassing,” said Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“He sounded like he was in bed crying. He took it as a blow to his mark. I think it really knocked him out. I said, ‘What are you going to do?’ He said, ‘I’m going to hang out by myself.’ It’s the only time I’ve ever heard him down,” Cameron said.
“I didn’t want to see anyone for a week. But you keep going. My mother-in-law said this all the time: ‘Let’s keep going.’ It’s a great message,” the actor said.
The last great hero is not, by far, the best movie by Arnold Schwarzenegger, but it’s also not close to the worst the Austrian actor has filmed in his prolific career. However, a blow to pride always hurts, be it in the movies or in bodybuilding.
