Pain & Gain

Pain & Gain ★★★

This is the best Michael Bay film since the 1990s. It's dark, funny, and eminently watchable, despite the subject matter - we follow along as three not-so-smart body builders go from kidnapping to extortion to torture to murder and fuck everything up along the way. It's a comedy of errors, a rags to riches to prison story, and a fine vehicle for Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie, and most of all The Rock to go batshit crazy while looking batshit swole. I had fun!
