Pain & Gain

Pain & Gain ★★★★

"My name is Daniel Lugo, and I believe in fitness."

Michael Bay has made plenty of good movies in the past (e.g. Bad Boys, The Rock, and Bad Boys II), but to my mind, Pain & Gain is his masterpiece. Like a steroidal hybrid of Pumping Iron and The Wolf of Wall Street, it's a breathless satire of both American excess and the pursuit of physical perfection. And needless to say, Dwayne Johnson has never been better.
