GENERATION IRON 2 (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Generation Iron 2
successfully outperforms its prequel Generation Iron with an informative format that focuses on the changes occurring within the professional body building community. The movie follows the professional careers of the world’s current top body builders and successfully generates new enthusiasm for this sport as it introduces Australian Callum Von Moger who presents an uncanny déjà vu a la Arnold Schwarzenegger to the screen. This film brings body building out of the woods into the light again.
