      Great movie and performances! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Danny R I like true stories, and this one kept my attention. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/12/23 Full Review El seor P Its a great movie, specially if you're in touch with the bodybuilding world, this movie has many Easter eggs Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/17/22 Full Review Audience Member Just a long boring promotion for Weider and the Mr Olympia. Get me a bucket. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member If you are into weight lifting then it is interesting if not well. I pretty much knew the story of the Weider brothers and their split from the AAU. Overall it is good flick. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is terrible.

      Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com As relatively handsomely mounted as this movie is, it's also kind of a shambles. Rated: 2/4 Oct 12, 2018 Full Review Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles Times Without a sturdier script featuring fully dimensional characters... the performances prove to be as unconvincing as their ethnic accents and period wigs. Oct 11, 2018 Full Review Robert Abele TheWrap A missed opportunity, the kind of yo-yo-ing highlights version of a life that seems less examined than expedited. Oct 11, 2018 Full Review Courtney Small Cinema Axis the film follows the biopic formula so closely that it loses its identity in the process. Rated: F Dec 17, 2018 Full Review Chris Knight National Post The Weiders denounced drinking and espoused protein shakes, but the film suggests you can never have too much cheese. Rated: 2/5 Oct 12, 2018 Full Review Michael Ordoña Common Sense Media Overly sanitized biopic tackles bigotry; mild violence. Rated: 2/5 Oct 12, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
