Movie Review: Pain & Gain 2013

No comments :


Title: Pain & Gain
Language: English
Genre: Dark Humour/ Comedy
Running Time: 129 Minutes

Synopsis:
It was all not enough for David Lugo, a fitness enthusiast with an american dream. Trying to achieve the wealthy lifestyle and decides to collect fellow body builders for a job that will change their lives. Their scheme of kidnapping cause awfully bad and takes a turn for the worst after many shortcomings.


What do I think about it:-
Created from true events from a 1994 crime by the character of the same name, Micheal Bay brings out the tragic yet funny incidents that happened. 

A cleverly orchestrated dark humour film that might not be appealing to many fans of the cast. However, The Rock's performance in the film was surprisingly good while Mark Wahlberg plays the role of the idiotic crime leader almost convincingly to the extend that you really believe he was a real life moron ( which was indeed true)

You don't expect much but you come out with a dirty satisfaction of watching a dysfunctional movie that was highly entertaining.  It was crude, it was nasty and it was not so nice being the victim but it was well played and told much more than what the trailer showed. 

I wouldn;t recommend just anyone to watch this but if you are adventurous for some crude and tragic event told in a funny way then by all means give it a try.

Rating: 2.5/5

"A real life event brought to the screen and yet seem so freaking unreal but it was real. Entertaining at a low level that made me feel really bad laughing at it but did satisfy me." 


*note:
The events in the story actually DID happen. After some research with Uncle google, there were some parts of the story that were fictional such as the characteristics of the victim but overall it was something dedicated to the unbelievable stupid criminals that were sentenced to death for their crimes.
