One of the best Documentaries I have ever watched.

This is by far one of the best Docs I have ever seen. Chris Bell really has a way of showing how miscued Steriods are or PED's in general. He has a way of showing how full of crap we are as a country. Don't get me wrong I love this Country but we are sick in a lot of ways. His parents seem like great people as is his family. Give this a watch if sports are your thing.

Excellent, well thought out documentary.

Nice to see a film that shows both sides of this coin. And nice to see the politicians portrayed as the hypocritical, judgmental, short sided neanderthals they truly are. I have long felt that if an athlete was willing to sacrifice his body, to achieve results, then it is their choice, and they should be allowed to do it. George Bush II owned the Texas Rangers, and was fully aware that a lot of his players were doping. Then he became president, and talked on and on about the war on drugs, and the evils of drugs. Same with Arnold. He took steroids since he was 16, but when he became governor, he was all of a sudden opposed to their use. Phone, disingenuous, dishonest, and totally compromised, and insincere.

Steroids should be legal. Period. Drugs should be legal. Making them illegal does nothing to discourage their usage. Stop the war on drugs. Alcohol is legal. Thousands of other drugs are legal. Stop the nonsense.

This film does a good job revealing how ridiculous and self righteous this movement is, to stop steroid use. Kudos to them to telling the truth. Who's body is it anyway?

A Balanced View of a Controversial Subject

It takes guts to do a documentary about steroids because no matter what you're going to upset somebody. There is the anti-steroid crowd and the pro- steroid crowd, and it's just not possible to please 2 masters. Having said that, this was probably the most balanced look at steroids I've ever seen. It covers as many bases as possible in a 105 minute film.

Bell interviews his own family, along with his professional wrestler and professional powerlifter brothers. You really get an insight into why people want to use steroids and get to the next level.

He interviews professional politicians, a father who lost a son, a muscle magazine editor, doctors, researchers, among so many others. He even compares banned substances/practices to those that are legal in an interesting way that will make you think.

I never got the feeling Bell was pushing any type of agenda. It is the most balanced look at steroids I have ever seen. He looks at the myths, the hype, the medicine, the harm, and the stigma.

If you watch the documentary with anything but an open mind, you'll probably be disappointed. Roger Ebert was quoted, "remarkable in that it seems to be interested only in facts".
