A genuine chore to sit through

"We snatch him, we grab him, signs a few signatures, we give him a protein shake! He doesn't even know what happened! I watched a lot of movies Paul, I know what I'm doing!" After years of gargantuan big-budget blockbusters, 2013's Pain & Gain was designed for Michael Bay to dial down his hyperbolic moviemaking tendencies and challenge himself by creating a low-budget character piece.

For the record, i just want to point out that making a comedy movie about a real murder is very inappropriate and Michael Bay is an ass**le for doing it, that being said, i also want to point out that Paramount didn't even pay a dime to the actual survivor Marc Schiller, which is usually not the case for movies based on true stories, they tend to support the actual guy, and in most cases, they ten... read more

Juvenile, empty and ridiculous

When Michael Bay’s name is plastered all over a film we have come to expect big explosions, terrible plot structure and very minimal performances from the main actors. Pain and Gain is entirely different from the rest of Bay’s body of work, but still inhabits some of his old tendencies, including the terrible plot structure that never quite allows this film to even make one bit of logical sens... read more

" Date: 6/2/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime Rental First viewing Note: I remember the advertisements for this movie in 2013, but I never saw it because I hear awful things about the movie. I end up watching the movie because I had nothing else to do. After watching this movie, this movie is a mixed bag for me. If this movie was not based on a true story, it could have been a fun modern conservative exploitation film. I do remember hearing about the real Sun Gym gang growing up, but not knowing too"

"19.1. rewatch Onkohan tämä nyt kolmas vai neljäs katselukerta, ja aikaisemmin olen viihtynyt kovasti Pain & Gainin röyhkeän amerikkalaisesta meiningistä. Jostain syystä tällä kertaa elokuva ei tuntunut enää puhtaasti viihteelliseltä, vaan filmin peruspilarina olevat "amerikkalaisen unelman tavoittelu hinnalla millä hyvänsä" -arvot saivat aikaan melkeinpä puistatuksia. Lähinnä siis sen takia, miten kiiltokuvamaisesti ne on tässä esitetty. Toisaalta pidin Pain & Gainin kiroutu"

My Top 10 Least Favourite Movies of 2013 (11 movies items)

"Because of my seething hatred for Michael Bay, this is probably the one I wanted to see the least. It's not as sickeningly loathsome as Bad Boys or Transformers 2 or anything, but it is agonisingly boring for the most part. It's a two-hour movie, but it feels more like four! I think it's mostly because the characters are such idiots that it's just not interesting to watch them constantly making such blinding mistakes. But, much like The Heat, it does perk up a bit towards the end; the scene wher"
