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.

  • Summary: A little more than three months following its Blu-ray debut, Director Michael Bay's 'Pain & Gain' has been re-released as a red-cased special edition that contains the supplements the original Blu-ray lacked. Video and audio presentations and language options remain the same.

  • 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?

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • 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,...

Pain & Gain (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
19 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Loosely based on a series of crimes that took place in 1999, Pain & Gain follows three bodybuilders—Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg, The Fighter ), Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie, The Hurt Locker ), and Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson, Fast Five )—as they try to extort a bunch of money from scumbag Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub, Barton Fink ). But the trio's dreams of carving out a big ol' slice of the American dream quickly turn into nightmares.

Pain & Gain Blu-ray Review

13 August 2013
  • Excerpt: It is isn’t until Dwayne Johnson is spotted outdoors, barbequing severed hands in sprightly Miami Beach sunshine, that Pain & Gain reminds audiences this is still a true story. From late 1994 into mid 1995, three muscle heads perpetrated a scam involving extravagant fraud, and as desperation set in, despicable murder which led to dual death row stays. Pain & Gain’s true story is absolutely wacky.

Pain & Gain (Blu-ray Review)

11 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Pain & Gain is another one of those films in 2013 where try as I might, I just never made it to in the theater and therefore I have been waiting ever since its April theatrical release to check it out on the Blu-ray format.  Obviously, that day has finally come!  Hooray!  Thank you Paramount!
