Warning: This review of Pain & Gain contains spoilers. If you don’t want to find out whether or not three muscle-bound meat heads can pull off an intricate caper, turn back now!
By all accounts, I should hate Pain & Gain. Directed by Michael Bay, and starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, Pain & Gain tells the story of three dumb-as-bricks body builders with poor impulse control who embark on a kidnapping caper as part of a get-rich-quick scheme. None of the words in the previous sentence appeal to me as a viewer in the slightest.
