Remarkably slow, moving and introspective for a bodybuilding documentary. Mickey Rourke's narration is excellent.
This will never do. Another competent but bland J.J. Abrams film; almost no one will be pleased. I was grateful for the kids in my screening making fun of the movie -- at the start they were slightly irritating, but I soon began to appreciate their jocularity, because the film is so humorlessly melodramatic and self-serious. Maybe a laid back viewing with friends at home is the way to go here. I can't recommend a theater trip.
Much tampering took…
