Pain And Gain

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.
