DARK comedy

By Archie Moonshine
Written June 25, 2016
I'm not a Michael Bay fan, and probably wouldn't have seen the movie if I had known he directed it, but I did like this movie. One key point: this is a DARK comedy, so don't expect an action comedy like Wahlberg's "Big Hit" or Dwayne Johnson's "Rundown". The movie made me laugh, and disturbed me. My Rating: catch the matinee. And don't take the kids.

No Pain no Gain!

Pain and Gain is a must see - but probably not for everyone. Some graphic scenes can make it tough for a wide audience, BUT it IS based on a true story - which is larger than life and just a smart move to make a movie about. Having been in this industry for a long time and seen all too many things - I can tell you this story was SO well done about the odd personalities in the fitness industry. But the bigger story is just great. Go see it.

Pain & Gain

My husband & I really like Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, so I figured this was a must see for us. The one thing about the movie that suprised me the most was that this is actually based on a true story. I had heard a few basic things about the outline of the story, but the movie actually shocked me and blew me away. The first thing I have to say is that I can't believe these idiots managed to get away with the crimes as long as they did. It doesn't say much about the abilities of the Miami/Dade county police department. Mark & Dwayne give great performances and both really stretched their acting abilities in this one. It is so unrealistic that I had to keep reminding myself that it all actually happened! On the whole, I have to say that we enjoyed it immensely. I think that having a somewhat sick sense of humor helps, as we couldn't help laughing at some of the stupid, sick things these guys did. We might even have to own this one!!

Worst in a long time

This is my first review, but I wanted to be sure that others know what a waste of time this movie was. I went because I usually really enjoy Dwayne Johnson, but he should have thought twice before accepting this role. I wish I could get a refund. Don't bother!
