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
