This film is something completely different than what you would expect from Michael Bay! At times you have to remind yourself that this is actually based on a true story.
Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson make for an entertaining pair and bring lots of muscle and some good humor to Pain & Gain. If your a fan of either actor then you will definitely get a kick out of this movie.
This was way different than I expected but I enjoyed it. Just be sure to leave the kids at home, there are some parts that will make you a little squeamish!

This movie is AWFUL!!! Confusing Disgusting and we left after 1 hour of trying to watch and understand what this movie was all about? And that was hard to stay that long but wanted to give it a chance. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

It will take years of the therapeutic process to conclude “why” , with knowledge and foresight, I went to see this terrifically awful film; questioning the soundness of my mind, the stability of of my judgment I can only surmise I suffered from a temporary loss of sanity or a petit mal seizure.
Based on a true story which transpired in Florida in the 90’s three “muscle crunchers” led by Mark Whalberg (shares my mental lacuna) kidnap, try to kill a successful business owner, for his wealth; the only, lonely humorous moments revolve around his obstinacy, refusal to die.
“Pain” in abundance and nothing to “Gain”; skip this insufferable, pathetic, stupid morass of ineptitude.

This would be a better movie if it didn't have the weak humor. Just an action movie without the silly jokes will make it a Go.

Although this movie has "big names" playing the lead roles, it failed to deliver. Labeled as a "Dark Comedy", the comedy parts did not strike a laugh out of me. And I've seen dark comedies before and usually get a laugh. Long story short this movie should be deemed as a movie to watch when you are bored and can't find nothing else to view. This is something to pass the time.
