Pain & Gain: Special Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: Bay has always been accused of making dumb action films that felt like they were pumped full of steroids. I never expected the film that was literally about dumb guys who are on steroids to be his wittiest effort to date.

Pain & Gain (2013)

  • Conclusion: Pain & Gain is a fine, underrated film in the Michael Bay canon. It tells an endlessly fascinating story of greed, tragedy, physical perfection, and mental corruptness, made whole by excellent acting and keen filmmaking. The initial Blu-ray release was absent supplements.

Pain & Gain: Special Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: I will shut up now and say that Pain & Gain was a good time considering the extremely grim details of the case it is based on. Pain & Gain can be considered Domino’s long lost cousin in that they both share certain similarities in that the most outrageous of depictions actually happened.

  • Summary: “Pain & Gain” is worth watching once. Depending on what you think, once might either be plenty or not enough.

Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: Has Michael Bay acquired self-consciousness? That's the question raised, if never convincingly answered, by Pain & Gain , an outrageous based-on-real-life tale that's perfectly suited to the director's insanely overblown stylistic and thematic temperament.

  • Excerpt: Based on a true story, Pain & Gain plays out sorta/kinda as a story the Coen Brothers might tell if they ate too much beef, pumped up a high dose shot of HGH and played video games all day long.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing if it’s what you’re into, but it’s not a good thing either.

The Digital Fix

  • Excerpt: If you�ve seen the trailer, I can confirm the characters in Pain & Gain are as stupid as they look. The film itself is surprisingly astute, albeit condescending in its approach. The main sell: it�s based on a true story, but could easily be from a zany �90s Coen brothers script.

  • Conclusion: It's refreshing and encouraging to see Michael Bay trying something different in Pain & Gain . This dark crime comedy is far more interesting than his most recent directing efforts, the Transformers movies.
