I was able to catch Pain & Gain last night courtesy of Paramount Pictures and David Barton Gym. Pain & Gain is a star studded comedy, crime, character piece based on various true stories in Miami during 1999. The true story involves a gang of criminals that included body builders which kidnapped, extorted, tortured and killed, which makes the subject matter quite dark. But what Michael Bay has done with the cast of Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie and an amazing supporting cast of Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris and Ken Jeong is hilarious. Mark Wahlberg plays the hot headed body builder ring leader, Daniel Lugo. His plans are quite on the whim and logical so naturally they of course blow up in face. Dwayne Johnson as the born again Christian ex con, Paul Doyle, has some of the best scenes and lines. I actually enjoy seeing him in roles that is not your typical action role so his natural charisma shines. Anthony Mackie is the impotent buddy to Daniel, Adrian Doorbal along with his wife Rebel Wilson as Ramona Eldridge is hilarious together. Ken Jeong has a small cameo in the beginning, playing his typical role.
