About the Movie
This critically acclaimed documentary follows seven larger-than-life competitors vying for glory in the 2012 Mr. Olympia, the ultimate bodybuilding contest that catapulted Arnold Schwarzenegger into stardom. From the producer of the acclaimed classic PUMPING IRON and narrated by Academy Award®-nominee Mickey Rourke (THE WRESTLER), this true story of dedication, rivalry, victory, defeat, and triumph follows an array of magnificent bodybuilders as they prepare for, then participate in, the Olympia showdown in Las Vegas. These athletes include 2011 Mr. Olympia winner Phil Heath, Brooklyn underdog Kai Greene, Texas maverick Branch Warren, Japanese expatriate Hidetada Yamagishi, Germany's Dennis Wolf, Curacao-born Roelly Winklaar, and the forward-thinking Ben Pakulski. Featuring Schwarzenegger (THE EXPENDABLES FRANCHISE), Lou Ferrigno (THE INCREDIBLE HULK), and Michael Jai White (THE DARK KNIGHT, FAST & FURIOUS 7).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For a documentary about extreme discipline, the filmmakers lack restraint: the movie, about 20 minutes too long, undercuts much of its own momentum.
Fresh: Yudin's deft cameras admiringly capture these iconically sculpted men without overly objectifying them, should the prospect of eyeballing all that posing-strapped beef give any potential viewers pause.
Fresh: A gorgeous meditation on age-old existential concerns.
Fresh: 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.
I was messing around on Netflix when I cam across this. It was really entertaining and will always be better than the second generation iron. I recommend this movie to anyone into lifting or working out in general. It also had Ronnie Coleman in it too! 10/10 go watch pumping iron too guys
