Excerpt: The title says it all. I couldn't find a single thing to enjoy in this mess. But a story about stupid people is in the end, just a story about stupid people. I completely agree with Jim L, watching the news beats this.
Summary: Definitely something out of the norm compared to Michael Bay's more recent movies. Rather than focusing on huge explosions and other large action set pieces, this one is largely focused on it's crazy story that is based on actual events.
Excerpt: I know a lot of people don't like Michael Bay films, but this one needs to be given a chance. It is a very different movie than the Transformers pictures for example, and that was what i loved the most about it.
Summary: I have some truly amazing news. Michael Bay has made a movie which isn't total This has only happened once before in 1996 with The Rock. He's still one of the worst directors on the planet, but I did find Pain and Gain to be mildly enjoyable.
Excerpt: I would highly recommend renting this first. This was just a "money-making" film for Bay. He was like here I'll give you a dumb film that has Bad Boys II meets Old School... An action film with very nice visuals and good actions scenes in Miami with 3 friends with a scheme to become bigger than what...
Excerpt: Movie: 4.5 A true story movie that's directed by Michael Bay, you know after the nightmare of a film that was Pearl Harbor everyone said that Michael Bay should never do a movie based on true story ever again and I thought the same.
Summary: Holy crap....The Rock can actually act? I will admit, I had low expectations coming into this, but I found myself laughing and genuinely enjoying every second. It was a bizarre, action packed, dark comedy that is definitely worth a watch.
