"It's a very interesting and a very hip story, and a hip movie, and like a lot of the critics say, it's a roller coaster ride from the beginning to the end," said Arnold, displaying his usual showmanship in pumping up his product. "It's like Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Batman all in one movie. ... and that's why there's such an excitement all over the country about this movie."
