This movie seemed pretty good on the promos and since it was the only movie coming out this weekend with a couple of big name actor I decided to go with my girlfriend. I was instantly disappointed. The narration was laughable. The plot was stupid and it got worse and worse as the movie went on. I wanted to walk out 30 minutes into it but said maybe it will get better. It didn't! Worse movie I have seen this year and I have seen some crappy ones. Very disappointed in "The Rock" & Mark Wahlbergh for even letting this movie go on screen after they finished it and watched it. DO NOT GO. STAY AWAY! I love the actors but this was not a good movie for them.

When this movie was first announced I blew it off because it looked like a waste of time, but then I hear that it's based on a true story & I had nothing better to do so I figured why not?. Even though it was better than I expected it wasn't all that either, I mean the back story itself about three beefed up guys extorting some rich criminal was definitely intriguing to think about but the movie itself was falsely advertised as it looked like just it was going to be a simple comedy but in reality it had a slight dark tone to it with profanity laced comic relief thrown in there as much as possible none of which I found funny, but like I said the back story kept me interested enough for me to give it an So-So rating

If people are seriously that stupid.. the world is in trouble. But back to the movie breakdown.. all I know to say is that it lacked the characteristics of a good movie, true story or not. The movie "42" was a true story and it was very good. This movie, not so much. However, I did get some very good laughs at points throughout the movie.

All the characters were horrible unlikable people.

I never read the reviews before I see a movie featuring my favorite actors, when I know I want to see it no matter what the critics say. This time I wish I had. Not knowing the background, I enjoyed this movie. It was, however, too long -- over 2 hours. It's hilarious, until the end when you realized it was based on a true story. #Awkward
