Excerpt: It's understandable why this film polarized audiences. It's a controversial topic. But then again when you make a comedy out of a tragedy, it will always be criticized. If it was made as a crime drama, then it probably wouldn't have gone under fire so much.
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.
Excerpt: I actually liked the movie and i was entertained from start to finish. I loved the colors, the humor, the action and the story. Def. not Dwayne Johnson's and Wahlberg's best performance but it was fresh and dynamic.
Summary: A Michael Bay movie that surprises by offering a mix of comedy and action through a true story. Entertainment that is rather well built, without death or decline rate time, and with a well balanced humor. An achievement that owes much to the nice interpretation of his trio of actors.
Summary: This movie was ironic, funny and damn near depressing. Based on the true events of three body builders who try to extort a rich jewish client, end up kidnapping him and get caught up in some mayhem that ends with a double murder. Definitely not a family movie, but a good view either way.
