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. This disc remedies that oversight, but there's no reason this couldn't have been the one and only release.

  • Conclusion: Double dipping on Pain & Gain so soon after its initial barebones release is no doubt going to sting for those who plunked down their hard earned cash on that first offering from Paramount. This new re-issue offers up great sound and video quality and handily trumps that older release in the extras department by offering up some interesting and entertaining supplemental material. The movie itself?

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. This Collector’s Special Edition does have the one lone documentary in addition to a UV digital copy/iTunes. The video and audio are tops and the finished product is whacky.

  • Excerpt: "Pain & Gain" is a film that even those who don't like Michael Bay might love. Thanks to strong performances by Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, the true story is engaging. But the realization that this black comedy is based on real murders puts things in perspective.

  • 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. Rife with racism, homophobia, and anti-Semitism, and infatuated with superficial beauty, physical strength, wealth, and military might, it's the perfect encapsulation of Bay's favorite things, a rollicking, repugnant,...

  • 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.
