I saw this documentary in health class, and it is generally interesting. However, the filmmakers use excessive repetition of a small clip of a hypodermic needle squirting steroids, of the same people flexing over and over again, and of Gregg Valentino attempting to drain the pus out of his bicep. It is well made with the exception of those clips and an English teenager who wants to use steroids to get stronger.

It may be somewhat biased, and is very effective at dissuading people from using steroids. It is too long for its content, and it does not have enough information for the 45 minutes it took to watch.
