Well-made and surprisingly enjoyable.
19 January 2016 | by jamessebastianbellSee all my reviews

Engaging and entertaining documentary providing insight into the world of Strongman competitions. Well-made and surprisingly enjoyable. As someone who doesn't follow Strongman I was not expecting to find the movie so interesting. The viewer gets to shadow man-mountain Eddie Hall (Strongman competitor) over a period of three years. My wife has been known on numerous occasions to stop watching movies and so it is a testament to how well this film has been made that she was not only fixed to the screen throughout but laughing out loud on a number of occasions. An 8 out of 10 may seem mean but movies never get a 10 from me. An 8 is outstanding considering I was anticipating a 5.
