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. – Nicole Herrington, New York Times, Sep 19, 2013

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. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Sep 19, 2013

Fresh: A gorgeous meditation on age-old existential concerns. – Ernest Hardy, Village Voice, Sep 17, 2013

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. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Sep 19, 2013
