Not since the classic PUMPING IRON has a film captured all the passion, pain and power behind the world of competitive bodybuilding. Academy Award® nominee Mickey Rourke narrates the illuminating (New York Daily News) and gorgeous (Village Voice) documentary about seven rivals Phil Heath, Kai Greene, Branch Warren, Dennis Wolf, Victor Martinez, Ben Pakulski, Hidetada Yamagishi and Roelly Winklaar as they battle for the title of Mr. Olympia. But beyond the gym, the stage, and the misconceptions about the sport, how far will each of them go to achieve the ultimate in extreme physical perfection? Experience this fascinating (Washington Post) true story of discipline, defeat, redemption and triumph, featuring special appearances by Michael Jai White, Lou Ferrigno and many others!
The oversized men who compete for the title of Mr. Olympia in this illuminating documentary are articulate and serious-minded, with some muscling through adversity to find a way to their dreams. --New York Daily News

By the way, be sure to watch the closing credits all the way to the end. The scene of Mike Katz still looking for his T-shirt (that Ken Waller hid from him at the South Africa Mr Universe in the original Pumping Iron) is a priceless moment of memorabilia for us old schoolers out there.
This is really a human story about people working hard to be at the top of their game with some minor story arcs thrown in... that's fine, just not riveting/mind-blowing.
The body builders are amazing. Their dedication and hard work really shows. I just think the film itself was a little drawn out and never really got me super excited about anything. It was kind of flat and never reached a high point.
They should have chosen less bodybuilders and focused more on each of them. USA docs can learn so much from BBC docs (Pumping Iron was the exception).
