Brain over Brawn (#3.2)
9 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well the main storyline is kind of stupid. I can't see how Steve won, what he done had absolutely nothing to do with rope climbing. One could make it that he "outsmarted it" by lets say make others question what he did and him saying that he won because technically they said that the one who first gets to the top wins, without mentioning how to get to the top. But this way everyone acted as if Steve actually won rope climbing. This doesn't add up and in a way also sends the younger audience a wrong message on cheating in sports.

But it brought us some awesome scenes, including the one of Steve hanging on the rope not wanting to let go.
