A must for any Bodybuilding fan and anyone interested in the lives of bodybuilders, contains some references to the Taboo nature of supplementation which makes a refreshing change rather than dismissing it.

Really is one to watch a couple of times and watch after the original 'Pumping Iron' film as I did, shows how cut throat and the personal nature of the sport.

Brilliant!

As already stated - this is a documentary of the current age Bodybuilders - told much in the same way as "Pumping Iron" 30 years ago. The quality and narration is good IMO - the story moves forward - and you follow the suspense about who will win the Mr. O - that year (only exciting if you don't already know).
I havn't been following bodybuilding that much the last 10 years and what really blew me away was the size of these new guys - they are freaky!! Enormous!!
The drug issue is brought up and contrary to former days everybody admits doing steroids.
All in all I'm happy with this - only thing that bugs me is the mood in the feature - most of the guys come across as depressed, sad, negative, insecure - etc.
I don't if this is a genuine portrayal - of if it is the way the editor wan't us to see it?
But if you look back at Pumping Iron - Arnold came across as vibrant, a guy enjoying himself, a prankster - arrogant - but also charming. Most of these guys now comes across as if they are not really enjoying themselves?
So all in all a good film about the current Bodybuilding scene. I only miss a little more joy and fun.

Without doubt one of the most well produced documentaries I have ever seen.

Not being a particularly big body-builder myself, yet having an interest, its an extremely well told and well paced piece of film making.

Whether a fan or not of this sport, you can but help marvel at the dedication of these guys.

5 stars hands down.

Generation Iron was an interesting look at the bodybuilding world. This is a new subject to me and I found myself watching it out of a strange kind of fascination more than anything else, and it certainly kept me interested right until the end.

There's definitely a lot more to bodybuilding than weights, spray tans and steroids; and this documentary does a good job of highlighting that fact. Every subject seems to be touched upon and explained even the ones you would expect are taboo (things like steroids) and the athletes wouldn't want to talk about on camera.

As interesting as it was though, to me it focused far too much on personal drama. Focusing on rivalries I could understand, but there is a bit too much here about people's backgrounds, childhoods and personal history. It's not that this isn't interesting, it's just not why I clicked on the title. I wanted to see how these guys went from average joe blogs to Mr Olympia, their workouts, the business behind it and more info about the sport itself.

Because of this I felt that the whole thing was a bit slow and probably could have done with being cut down by 20-30 mins or so.

However, all that taken into account and what you are left with is an interesting documentary that Mickey Rourke did a good job narrating and that looked great filmed in HD. It's something I can recommend, even if like me this isn't normally the kind of thing you would watch.

I'm probably one of the few people who saw Pumping Iron at the cinema in 1977. Generation Iron has taken the lessons learned from that `docu-drama' by casting Phil Heath as the privileged `hero' and Kai Green as the `dark' villain. Although nothing is ever as cut and dried (or cut and ripped) as that, it does give the film a solid foundation to tell the story from. It was great to get an insight into the lives of contemporary bodybuilders, the insane hard work and the intense pressure of competition. These guys are top athletes who train, eat and travel hard for the sport they love. My own favourite bodybuilder in the movie is actually Hidetada Yamagichi - although he needs to loosen up and enjoy himself! A special mention for the opening credits and the song behind them. Beautifully thought out and put together. Now, excuse me, I must go and lift something heavy.

I’m not really into fitness/bodybuilding but a friend told me about Generation iron and I thought I’d give it a try. I was really impressed, the quality was high and it went into such depth in regards to strength, both mental and physical. Whether or not you like this type of thing, the film is inspiring! I heard that it’s the sequel to Pumping Iron, so that’s next on my agenda to watch! I definitely would recommend Generation Iron and would watch it again.

This documentary is a downbeat look at the ruthless world of competitive bodybuilding, and its self-absorbed competitors.

The documentary is well made, but it is hampered by the absence of any character in the story who is light-hearted, let alone funny or out-going. These bodybuilders take themselves very seriously.

This film's most memorable personality is Kai Green, who comes across as sad. He appears to be depressed and solitary, and there is something that strikes you as heart-breaking about his situation.

In comparison with the famous "Pumping Iron" of 30 years ago (which featured a funny and watchable star, Schwarzenegger), "Generation Iron" leaves you feeling generally less cheerful about this tough sport.
