Unexpectedly Great

This is an honest David-and-Goliath story; a documentary / body-building version of Rocky vs Creed. At the center is a pre-fame Arnold Schwarzenegger; cunning, egotistical, charismatic and hilarious. The film manages to admire these men and their insanely unnatural bodies, while knowingly allowing us to bashfully giggle at the scantily clad, oily muscles at every turn. Highly entertaining look at a world we're all aware of but rarely get to actually know.

Both engaging and amusing

PUMPING IRON is a bodybuilding documentary that feels very much a product of its time. The film follows the fortunes of various rival weight trainers as they compete for the prestitious Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia competitions. It's most well-known today for being the film that introduced the inimitable Arnold Schwarzenegger and his larger-than-life character to the masses. A young and goofy Schwarzenegger is endearing as ever here, sharing camaraderie with his peers and always trying to play mind games even when not on the stage. The film is a little fake and scripted at times, but to my mind this makes the subject matter that bit more entertaining. A lot of the laughs come from the presence of Lou Ferrigno, presented as a real slow-witted character one step behind everybody else. PUMPING IRON is good enough to be enjoyed even if you're not a fan of the whole bodybuilding scene.

Arnold in his days of physical perfection

It,s a body building documentary. The only draw to watch this film is to see Arnold in his days of physical perfection. He does talk about some very funny topics and comes across as a genuinely awesome guy but unless your into the sport there's no need to watch it. That being said, if you are a fan of the sport then you are going to love watching some of the all time greats posing and talking about the sport and industry. It is filmed fairly well and you do get a lot of information, but for me one viewing was enough.
