Incredibly Backwards
3 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Without question this has to be one of the more blatant propaganda pieces ever put on film. It appears no effort was made to reveal truth, as is the point with such films; instead the film relies on the ingrained ideas of popular culture and the vast array of misinformation and urban legend. As someone who works in the field of bodybuilding and fitness in a both research and applicable manner, I find the film highly offensive to basic intelligence as every aspect of the film can be dismissed and disproved with simple medical and scientific data. For those who have their doubts a good place to start would be The New England Journal of Medicine and their 1996 study on anabolic steroids in a performance enhancing capacity. You'll note Roid Rage does not exist and you will find this to be the case in all studies of a neutral nature, as it has been proved myth time and time again.
