It is what it is...

This movie sure isn't all time great or classic film, that is for sure, but what Michael Bay movie ever is, overall the guy is a hack, but I actually liked this film. It has a twisted sense of humor and isn't going to be for everyone, there is no doubt about that. The shining star of the film is Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), he continues to get better and better as an actor whichever genre he is performing in. Whalberg turns in his usual ok performance as well. I flip flopped between giving this a so-so and a go, but even though I ended up giving it a so-so overall if you're into dark twisted humor it's worth giving it a try.

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!!

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!

I don't know what everybody is talking about, this was a funny movie. I considered it to be more of a dark comedy, you'll know what I mean when you watch it. Secondly If you see it's rated R then its a Rated R film, don't expect it to be good for your kids to watch then complain about the movie being a horrible flick.
