This weekend I went to see Pain and Gain starring Dwayne “the Rock “ Johnson and Mark Walberg. The film was rated R and directed by Michael Bay who has also directed blockbuster films like “Transformer”. The film is a action comedy based on a true story of a few Body Builders who attempt to rob Victor Kershaw, a self made millionaire. The main characters in the film are Daniel Lugo (Mark Walberg) and Paul Doyle (Dwayne “the Rock “ Johnson). These body builders have both had their issues with the law throughout their life and end up working togethder at the Sun Gym together. At work they come together and make this plan to steal Kershaw’s Money. While attempting to rob and torture Kershaw are able to make the whole process funny through their lack of experience and good comedic timing. A major complaint with this movie though is the often over dramatized fights which ruins the action aspect of the movie. While not one the funniest movie ever this movie is quite entertaining. The performances by the main character were excellent but this movie is definitely not a hit and will soon fall in the shadow of the coming blockbuster “Iron Man 3”.
