The Iron Cowboy: The Story of the 50-50-50 (2016)
Updated: Jul 31, 2019
Not sure how I feel about this guy. 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 and I really didn’t warm to him. 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.
