I'd heard that this movie was bad and then I'd heard that it was good. Having Marky Mark in it even gave me more reservations. I had thought that maybe it was a situation where you had to "understand" the gym culture in order to enjoy the movie. So being that I do understand this side... I gave the movie a shot. And I'm glad that I did. My Partner and I settled down for a nice Saturday evening and clicked the movie on Apple TV. I was impressed with all aspects of the movie. It's based upon a real story and it's even stranger than fiction. The acting is sound and it's action packed. I should have gone with the gut and saw the movie at the theater... but since we did not, I'm glad we at least rented it. I would rate this a must go....

I knew going into this it was based on a true story, of which I really had no details. Trailers made it seem like a great action and comedy, however, that is not the case. While the actors are great and it had funny moments, the overall story line is too depressing and I did not enjoy seeing Johnson and Wahlberg play these criminals.

I thought the movie was good at first, but it was waaayyy too long! I was falling asleep in the theater for the first time ever. It was a waste of my time.

Very disappointed in both actors. I've really liked seeing The Rock in all of his movies. .. This one however. WOW. Why do actors and actresses take on roles with a filthy script? The potty mouth crap is sooo old. Wonder why there is less respect in the world ? Everyone seems to LIKE this stuff. It's sad to see our decent world we once lived in go to the potty mouth dumps ! Why is it y'all seem to want to PAY to hear this filth? Oh well..

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
