Great Documentary! 6/10

Review: this movie gives an deep insight into the preparation that body builders have to go through before competition. It really does show that you have to completely devote your whole life to the sport to come any in competition. As in Pumping Iron, there is still a bitter rivalry between the contenders and there is a big gap between 2nd and 1st place. The movie was put together well by the director and the different body builders really did show what they put there bodies through. It was good to see Arnie & Lou Ferigno, who were always going up against each other, but Arnie always came out on top. Anyway, this movie is a great watch if your interested in body building and and the dedication of the athletes. Enjoyable!

Round-Up: It always amazed me how much these body builders push there bodies to the extreme and with all the supplements and detailed diet, it really isn't for every person. When these body builders are in competition, they really don't have time for everyday life, so you can just imagine how it must feel when you don't win. I did feel sorry for some of the contend ants because they really was relying on a win to further there careers. It also hurts when a cocky competitor wins, especially when they have won 8 times before, and they really don't have any compassion for the other athletes.i did enjoy Pumping Iron and I think that this was a well out together sequel.

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $1million

I recommend this movie to people who are into there body building documentaries about a group of athletes preparing for Mr. Olympia. 6/10

Eat. Sleep. Pump Iron. Eat. Sleep. Pump Iron. (Ad Nauseum)

Is there a saying (that I don't know about) that goes - "The bigger your muscles, the bigger the man you are." (?) - 'Cause after watching "Generation Iron" I'm convinced that this very saying is what's behind driving these over-ambitious bodybuilders to pump themselves up like total balloons. I really do.

Yeah. These Hulk-like power-lifters, and such, have convinced themselves that by looking like the Michelin Man on steroids, they, in turn, are gonna be perceived as being the absolute epitome of total manliness. I mean, what else could it be? I really don't know.

Please don't get me wrong here. I've certainly got nothing against anyone doing some sensible exercising. I really don't. But, for the life of me, I just can't comprehend (even the slightest) the mindset of these bodybuilders whose determination to develop their muscles to such fantastic proportions is (from my perspective) actually bordering on the obsession of a total fanatic. It really is. Like, talk about muscle-mania to the extreme.

And, hey, speaking about performance-enhancing drugs (aka. steroids) - I don't know for sure if taking these sorts of stimulants is directly connected with hair loss, or not - But, from what I observed here, 90% of these over-developed dudes were, in fact, bald, or certainly getting that way soon enough.

Anyways - From this viewer's fairly dissatisfied perspective - I found this documentary DVD (concerning 7 very determined rivals all eagerly preparing for the 48th "Mr. Olympia" competition in Las Vegas) to be only marginally entertaining, at best.

A documentary that follows top bodybuilders as they train to compete in the Mr. Olympia competition. The trains of bodybuilding and righteousness can't be stopped and their movement brings about reactive forces in the people they affect. The cinematography is stark and bare, with only the soundtrack adding some effect. Other than that, it was an okay film, and I would recommend that people watch it. It's an amazing work and everything I had hoped for. From an artistic standpoint, it holds its own. With good narration from all involved, I have to give this one a final and well deserved rating of 7 out of 10, so check it out now.
