Excellent documentary
5 January 2016 | by Heatherb123See all my reviews

Whether you are into the world of Strongman or not this is a really watchable film. It takes us on a journey using a mixture of reality, pathos, humour and amazing music to learn what it is like to be driven to be the strongest man in the world. The cinematography is beautiful and the drive and determination that Eddie shows is incredible. You meet his family and learn so much about what it is like to compete at this very high level. From being a young national class swimmer to the man mountain he is today is a fascinating story. And the moments when the challenge is greatest and the tension runs high are shown so well here. I believe this film will really raise the profile of the Strongman events in this country; it is an awesome sport but has lacked fame and funding since the days of Geoff Capes who was a national in the 60s.
