Billed as a comedy...its not

I don't mean that it just isn't funny. It really isn't a comedy. IT was amazing only in how horrible it was. Based upon a true story, this was a story that didn't need retelling and I'm stunned that it has the cast and director that it does. don't waste your money and don't waste your time when it comes out on cable.

Classic Bay

By Movie Man723
Written August 05, 2015
Pain & Gain. Where to begin? Finally getting off his Transformers debacle (hate em or love em) Bay puts himself back in familiar territory with a good old fashioned adventure. Now this is by far his strangest film and easily his best since the rock. Bay has always had a knack for flashy shots, but he out does himself here with full blown beautifull camera work. The Rock and Mark are equally as stunning, with the rock giving his best performance to date. The story is incredibly well paced, going from comedy/hoax to serious/sick. Extremely well paced, extremely well shot, and extremely well acted, I have begun to belive in Michael Bay again. Fantastic movie experience that will likely become a classic.

DARK comedy

By Archie Moonshine
Written April 19, 2015
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.

This movie is funny! Just can't believe it is a true story, it was really messed up! I felt bad watching but it did make the audience laugh.
