About the Movie
Pulling John is the universal story of a champion's glory in an unsung sport, who after 25 years of success is now burdened with the inevitable transformation of aging. John Brzenk, the legendary armwrestler, who works as an airline mechanic by day must decide whether to leave the sport he was raised on or wait to be defeated. Pulling John takes a journey to the far corners of the world, where men define themselves by trying to beat him. Voevoda from Russia, Bagent from West Virginia and Yoshi from Tokyo are the colorful characters who have been raised on the legend of John Brzenk. In a philosophical and thrilling ride through human nature, told via the offbeat sport of Armwrestling, Pulling John culminates at the Zloty Tur Championship in Warsaw, where Bagent and Voevoda have the chance of their life, to dethrone the conflicted Brzenk.
If you know absolutely nothing about armwrestling this is a must see film! Within armwresling's inner circles it was a highly anticipated documentary that that many enjoyed. i beleive you could compare this film about armwrestling to what pumping iron revealed for bodybuilding. I envy those who will be watching it for the first time! Also the bonus footage is something to watch as well
I knew nothing about arm wrestling. Loved the movie. My only wish is that the movie were longer. John is the man. Highest rating.
