The horror!

If this movie was fiction, I wouldn't be writing a review. It was funny, silly at times and what you'd expect from a Michael Bay movie (maybe entertaining?). The movie itself wasn't bad. What makes this movie horrible is that it is a true story. I liken it to watching a Dateline special about how a husband kidnaps his wife and kills her unborn baby, and then Michael Bay gets a hold of it and decides to make it sexy and fun. It's hard to be entertained at the expense of such sad events that affected so many people (despicable or not) and to feel any joy about such desperate and deprived acts. In theory, this should be a Go!, but real life horror as fun? No!

Great Characters

My girl friend and I decided to see Pain & Gain tonight. We actually really enjoyed the movie despite our reservations on the (so-so) review before we left. The story is dramatic, but the characters and some of the situations were quite comical. Dwayne Johnson and Mark Walburg were at the top of their game as usual and the movie was filmed and cut in traditional Michael Bay style. Wether you are curious about the actual story that happened, or are a fan of Marky Mark or The Rock, Pain & Gain was an entertaining movie.

The entire movie I was dumbfounded at how stupid people could sometimes be. I enjoyed that it was a true story and yes it had a few laughs but in the end you were just in awe.
