4.0 out of 5 stars Michael Bay makes a smaller film. April 25, 2013
Format:DVD
Pain & Gain (2013)- Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Ken Jeong

Premise: Danny Lugo (Wahlberg) is a body builder who is sick of being poor. With his friend, Adrian (Mackie), and an ex-con (Johnson), Danny decides to rob a spoiled and egotistical businessman named Victor Kershaw (Shalhoub). After seemingly succeeding, Kershaw turns to a private investigator (Harris) to recover his finances and deal with the trio...But everything gets out of hand quickly.

Thoughts: This is a Michael Bay film. As such, it matches his general off-kilter aesthetics and love of the "BOOM, BANG, BOOM". That said, this is different from his most recent endeavors (i.e. the Transformers) in that it is exceedingly more violent. However, the cast give morbidly entertaining performances which quickly helped make this a much more enjoyable film. Visually intense, dark and even surprisingly violent at times - the film is an enjoyable dark "R" comedy.

Should you buy it: This comes down to a matter of taste. Do you regularly enjoy Michael Bay films? Then yes, this is a pretty good purchase. I intend to buy it on Bluray since I found it to be quite enjoyable despite the dark content. Unwilling to commit? Rent away!

3.0 out of 5 stars Their Gain was another's Pain April 23, 2013
By Perry
Format:DVD
I am really troubled by this Story and Entertained by the way it was presented. The troubling part is that this is said to be a true story.

***Stop reading if you don't like spoilers.***

The story starts with Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) running from what is an obvious raid on his place of employment, he's hit by a car and then the story flashes back to 6 Months earlier.

Daniel is a personal trainer at a local Miami Gym and he comes in contact with a very well to do Colombian-Jewish Entrepreneur. The Entrepreneur's name is withheld to protect the innocent but, needless to say, this guy hires Daniel as Personal Trainer and begins to tell him all about his success in life.

Now Daniel attends a Johnny Wu (Never actually happened) seminar where he is convinced he is A doer and only needs to come up with a plan then make it happen.

One thing leads to another Daniel recruits his two friends, Paul and Adrian, to come up with a plan of how they're going to take the Entrepreneurs life, money, and property away to make it their own.

Needless to say, this whole thing leads to kidnapping, extortion, fraud, attempted murder, a double murder, and two death penalties for 6 months of living the high life.

The acting was decent overall but, playing three dumb, homicidal, muscle heads (no this is not an insult to weight lifters, these guys really were dumb) probably isn't all that challenging.

The movie itself was actually very entertaining, disturbing, and actually well done. I was given tickets to a screening but, I would have honestly paid to see this movie had I not known what I know now.

If you're okay with somewhat morbidly bizarre comedies then you won't be disappointed by this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Bay can actually make a movie. May 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's hard to get past the fact that Michael Bay has made some really bad movies in the past. However, after you watch Pain and Gain you realize the guy can make a movie that doesn't need explosions every five minutes.
Mark Whalberg, perfect as the clueless Daniel Lugo, Dwayne Johnson (turning in one of the best performances of his career), and Anthony Mackie make the movie fun to watch. However, it's Tony Shalhoub (Monk) who steals the movie as a kidnap victim. Plus, Ed Harris is in it and he's awesome in pretty much everything.
Pain and Gain is good movie, well worth the watch. Even better, it's free on Amazon Prime. You can't lose.

Format:Blu-ray
Updated: This was really based on a true story... Google it, you will be amazed.

I judge a movie by how much I want to see the conclusion when I'm about halfway through it, and Pain & Gain was a movie I was interested to see how it ended and what was its point. I'm somebody who likes comedies and funny banter but I also like character development. One thing I liked about this movie the most was how the voiceovers switched between the different characters and it wasn't just one person doing the majority of the voiceovers.

And I think The Rock did a decent job as the stand-in Jesus freak. I've a hard time watching him in movies for some reason but in this one it was okay. If you're a fan of Mark Wahlberg and figure enjoy this movie thoroughly.

2.0 out of 5 stars I am a huge Mark Wahlberg fan but... May 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
In all the Wahlberg films that I've seen up to now he's played believable and entertaining characters. All the ones outside of the "sci-fi / fantasy" realm did not disappoint, but unfortunately this one did. Not Mark's fault because he does his characteristic good job. The writers got this completely wrong. Here are some details:

1) The movie is based on a true story, and although the viewer is reminded through the film that it is a true story, they don't stick to the facts. Wahlberg's character doesn't kill the guy at the end, his partner does. The victim was roughly the same age as the villains. Etc. Etc.
2) The movie makes the kidnapping, torture and killing of its victims a matter of comedic portrayal. Yes, the factual case was bizarre, but to lionize the main characters who commit the crimes is a bit much. Barbecue grilling of the hands? Come on guys. Not true and definitely not funny. Which is happens throughout the film. Humor and slapstick is blurred with real and imagined grotesqueness and there's no need for it.
3) I love the Rock character, Duane Johnson. I was expecting his characteristic GI Joe / Scorpion King persona. He plays an idiot with no real moral compass except....
4) We have to deal with the stereotypical Hollywood portrayal of Christianity. In this case Johnson's character is born again in prison but doesn't internalize that the tenets of Christianity contains the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments as absolutes. Sigh. So to accept this "based on true events" the viewer is left to believe that some manner of Christianity allows subjectivity to hurt others? Thanks guys.
