Inaccuracies & Poor Acting
21 October 2018 | by clintemshoffSee all my reviews

As a bodybuilding historian I was angered by the many historical inaccuracies in this movie. Seeing that present day Weiders were involved with it made this make more sense as the Weiders always inflated claims about their products. The acting was bad overall but seemed to get better through the movie. Hough was a bright spot as well as Moger's Arnold accent which was much better than I thought it would be.
