Critic Reviews of "Pumping Iron"TIME MagazineAugust 03, 2008
A very good film, beautifully shot and edited, intelligently structured and -- to risk what will surely seem at first a highly inappropriate term -- charming.VarietyMarch 14, 2007
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.Time OutJune 24, 2006
The movie is a very shrewd mixture of documentary and realistic fiction, put together with both eyes and ears on entertainment value.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
An interesting, rather slick and excessively long documentary about the small but intensely competitive world of body-building.Hollywood ReporterJanuary 06, 2004
Its in-your-face images of the bodybuilding subculture's well-oiled narcissism both startled and fascinated viewers, making for an unlikely boxoffice hit.Common Sense MediaMarch 07, 2017
'70s docu featuring Schwarzenegger has some cursing.The SpectatorFebruary 16, 2016
This kind of sweetly numbskull arrogance is cleverly caught by Pumping Iron which depicts Mr Olympia as a beauty, not body, contest.Seanax.comFebruary 12, 2016
The stage show is all about oiled hardbodies and sculpted musculature, but the movie is a portrait of competition as war and Schwarzenegger as the warrior supreme...Urban CinefileMarch 14, 2009
Pumping iron is as satisfying as having sex with a woman and reaching orgasm, says Arnold Schwarzenegger in this fascinating1977 documentaryAtlantic City WeeklyApril 06, 2007
Arnold's "reality" debutEmpire MagazineMarch 14, 2007
Fascinating stuff when viewed in the context of Arnie's now notorious political career.TV GuideMarch 14, 2007
Directors George Butler and Robert Fiore never allow their film to turn into a freak show, but neither do they illuminate the appeal of body building, either to those who participate or those who watch.
