Movie Review: Pain & Gain

Pain_&_Gain_Teaser_PosterWe went out today to see Pain & Gain with Dwayne ”The Rock”Johnson and Mark Wahlberg,

The Storyline which is based on a real story is Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) is a regular bodybuilder who works at the Sun Gym along with his friend Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie). Sick of living the poor life, Lugo concocts a plan to kidnap Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub), a regular at the gym and a rich, spoiled businessman, and extort money from him by means of torture. With the help of recently released criminal Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson), the “Sun Gym Gang” successfully gets Kershaw to sign over all his finances. But when Kershaw survives an attempted murder by the gang, he hires private investigator Ed Du Bois (Ed Harris) to catch the criminals after the Miami Police Department fails to do so.

The movie is no bad and probably the best Movie Dwayne Johnson has done so far. As it is based on a true story there was obviously no space for a happy end…
