Early Affleck in steroid abuse PSA from HBO.
1 December 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"A Body to Die For" is a compelling title for a very ordinary 30 minute HBO PSA about performance enhancing steroid abuse. Affleck, whose performance in this 1994 edu-drama serves to show how little his acting skills have improved over the years, plays Aaron Henry, a "roid" abuser who does an on-screen bio-epilogue in the final minutes. With much better info available more quickly with random access via the Internet, there are few reasons to watch this obvious and preachy show. However, it's short length is suited to the short attention spans of teens making it a suitable educational watch for High School athletes. (C)
