As someone who follows the sport of professional bodybuilding closely, this movie really didn't tell me anything I already didn't know. It was over dramatic, under acted, and kind of disappointing. Yes we all get it, Kai Greene had a rough childhood and Phil Heath is a genetic freak. Maybe if Kai stopped complaining how he's had such a rough life he'd actually win some Olympia's. If the Olympia went to the athlete with the biggest sob story, Kai would win. For me, the movie went too far into the psyche of the athletes instead of showing more of the actual lifting and eating. This movie might be okay for someone who doesn't know anything about the sport, but it was mediocre at best. Th e majority of the scenes in that movie I had already seen on You tube or other bodybuilding sites.
