A very good film, beautifully shot and edited, intelligently structured and -- to risk what will surely seem at first a highly inappropriate term -- charming.

Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, 2008-08-03

 

The most fascinating aspect of this film is the dedicated training that turns average-built young men (frequently they refer to themselves as weaklings in their early youth) into superbly-created physical edifices.

Review, Variety, 2007-03-14

 

The movie is a very shrewd mixture of documentary and realistic fiction, put together with both eyes and ears on entertainment value.

Derek Adams, Time Out, 2006-06-24

 

An interesting, rather slick and excessively long documentary about the small but intensely competitive world of body-building.

Richard Eder, New York Times, 2005-05-09

 

Its in-your-face images of the bodybuilding subculture's well-oiled narcissism both startled and fascinated viewers, making for an unlikely boxoffice hit.

Glenn Abel, Hollywood Reporter, 2004-01-06
