This is a movie based on a true story which was released in 2013. However, the events in real life happened sometime in 1994-95 which is currently a part of the Netflix bouquet and something I enjoyed as a combination of star power and the monumental stupidity with which it actually happened as depicted in the movie. The film has the tagline, “Their American Dream is bigger than yours”
|Pain And Gain|
It is a brave foray by the Director Michael Bay in the comedy genre but the movie is more about the gravity of the crimes committed by a bunch of novices who thought they were answerable to none. Daniel Lugo(Mark Wahlberg), Paul Doyle(Dwayne Johnson) and Adrian Doorbal(Anthony Mackie) are gym buddies who hatch a kidnapping of a millionaire in Miami, Florida and how it puts in motion a chain of events where the kidnapping goes horribly wrong and everything goes for a toss.
The lead actors give credence to the movie with their realistic acting and I have no hesitation in stating that the movie is worth it only because of the two “protagonists” One time watch at least.
