An average movie, full of bigger than average men.
29 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Bodybuilder is a very average movie, with a very average set of actors, a very average direction, but bigger than average men.

It depicts the life of a bodybuilder whose son is in trouble with local thugs. This big guy is completely detached from his son's life to the point of not even remembering his age. Reluctantly, he gives him a place to stay to get him out of trouble, just as he is going through his last weeks of hard training for some bodybuilding championship. Surprisingly, his obsession with his bodybuilding career is put aside little by little as he grows fonder of his son.

The story is nothing special as you can see, and nothing in the movie manages to make it better. Certainly not the passive acting, and lack of energy of everyone involved. If you find yourself wanting to watch a movie, it could just be acceptable enough for a night in which you are not paying too much attention to the screen. But again, even for that, there's plenty of better choices out there.
