Overall, not a terrific movie, and not even a recent favorite. I typically rate movies on two criteria - do I want my time and/or money back. Do I want my time back - no, it was an all right watch. Do I want my money back - again, no; it was fine for a rental (though I am glad I didn't drop the movie to see it in a theatre).
Cinematically the thing was a mess. Frenetic editing, oversaturated colors, grainy resolution, jarring transitions. Michael Bay apparently watched a Guy Ritchie film and thought "I can do that," but he couldn't.
The target audience for this R-rated flick is evidently 11 to 15-year-old boys, or people who are feeling in that mood. I watched it through without fast-forwarding, but I wouldn't care to see it again.
Sadly the film has no extras or special features. I found that a real disappointment. I'd wished they could have included something comparing the film with the real story, for instance.
It's funny, stupid, interesting and thoroughly entertaining. The Rock playing a coke-head? Why not? One hellava performance. Walberg is simply a great actor. I can believe him playing anyone. Don't know Anthony Mackie: Funny, intriguing. I didn't know steroids made a man impotent. How he resolves his problem had me rolling with laughter and horror.
Tony Shalhoub... The Victim. WOW. This guy can act! In anything, anywhere. Didn't know he was in this movie but he really added to the plot!
