GENERATION IRON 3 (Limited Theatrical Release USA 2018)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Generation Iron 3—spunk and dedication to disciplined goals define every scene in this film that more clearly shows the progression of body building and the various levels on which a person may compete. The Men’s Physique (stress places on upper body while lower body stays about the same, think male models) may seem a more doable goal for the average person. The Classic Physique (where both the upper and lower body builds, think Charles Atlas or Joe Weider) may also appeal to the average person. The universally accepted body builder look (think Arnold Schwarzenegger) evolves into an Extreme Body Building classification (think Lou Ferrigno’s latest look). The documentary refreshingly shows that the Golden Era of bodybuilding has not died out and completely given way to the increasingly massive bodies that are seen in extreme body building today and also shows increasing international interest in this activity. It’s a good watch and allows a profound look into this sport as a life activity.

Storyline

This documentary more clearly defines different types of body building competitions and shows what international competitors contribute to body building. It also shows that some countries produce better competitors due to initial physique proportions and better suitability for the sport.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This informative movie compliments the first two films in the series by increasing depth of understanding about competition levels, natural predisposition for the activity, and different ways international competitors train.
