Audience Reviews for The Strongest Man in the World

The Strongest Man in the World (1975) -- [2.0] -- A cheap, cheesy, formulaic turd of a movie. I love Kurt Russell, but that love has boundaries. And I draw them right before live-action Disney movies.

**1/2 (out of four) Fun, but predictable addition to the Medfield College Disney films. It is on a par with "Now You See Him, No You Don't", but a bit better than "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes." The lab concocts a formula that makes whoever eats it super strong. Two rival cereal companies try to get their hands on it.

Kurt Russell plays the high school preppy type who learns he can lift heavy things.....silly but it made me smile.
