Not sure how I feel about this guy...
6 September 2018 | by garethcrookSee all my reviews

50 Ironmans, in 50 US States, in 50 days. Raising money for childhood obesity. Great challenge, great cause, but woefully ill prepared. I kinda feel sorry for him, his heart was in the right place, but there's a lot of this that doesn't work for me. Ultimately I don't think he had enough respect for what he was doing, perhaps too much of an ego trip. Fair play to sticking with it though, despite the perceived short comings. As for it as a documentary, a bit overly schmaltzy and self-aggrandising.
