| Ferrigno redeems himself
Mark Nalley directed this body builder icon documentary. It is made as a tribute to Lou Ferrigno, and although Boyer Coe acts like a hot shot through out the film, the viewer always feel that Ferrigno is the main man. The film is built up much like Pumping Iron with an antagonist and protagonist, Ferrigno being the protagonist and Coe maybe as a weak antagonist. The most interesting sequences of this film are the interviews with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joe Weider about what kind of a man Lou Ferrigno is. Weider makes an interesting observation where he says that Lou Ferrigno was always more vacillating than Arnold. Arnold was more mental. If you have seen Pumping Iron and read about it you will know that Ferrigno did not care the most about winning, he most of all wanted to be spiritually free like Schwarzenegger was. Lou Ferrigno does not win the competition in either of the films, but the conclusion this time around is that although he did not win, Lou Ferrigno will always STAND TALL.
