New Documentary on Steroids, Body Building and Baby Oil

Don't forget your tub of popcorn and extra-large soda when you sit for two hours and enjoy this movie about body building.

  • Generation Iron

Generation Iron is screening in selected cities, and Tucson's one of them.

The documentary is written and directed by Vlad Yudin (sounds like a Russian mob boss). I think Mickey Rourke posses the perfect barely audible, masculine voice to narrate this muscle packed film. After watching the trailer I felt like this is the sequel to Pumping Iron, but apparently a lot has changed since the 1977. You can catch Generation Iron starting tomorrow at the El Con after you hit the gym, of course.



GENERATION IRON - examines the professional sport of bodybuilding today and gives the audience front row access to the lives of the stars of todays international bodybuilding arena - Phil Heath, Branch Warren, Kai Greene, Dennis Wolf, Victor Martinez, Hidetada Yamagishi as well an ambitions newcomer Ben Pakulski and a European sensation Roelly Winklaar on their journey to the Olympia.

Each of the athletes has a story to tell of their life, journey, aspiration and motivation. They have been through up and downs, overcoming the toughest judges in the world as they've entered the stages around the world and flexed their muscles for eager fans. To their fans, they are more than superstars - they are Olympian Gods.

Outside of the gym and the brutal training, the cameras chronicle the iron men through their most intimate moments in life as they prepare for the mental challenges that lay ahead. As Arnold once said — “Bodybuilding is as much physical as it is mental." All of the athletes are unique in their own way. They come from different paths. They engage different methods, routines, interests, endeavors and even hobbies. But one factor unites them all — their competitive drive and relentless ambition to rise to the top. But only the best man will be crowned at the Mr. Olympia stage. This is the long awaited true story of dedication, discipline, rivalry, defeat, victory, redemption and triumph.
