Re: Pain and Gain - Blu-ray Review

Not for everyone , but I liked it! I must admit Dwayne Johnson gave a rather memorable performance, the movie itself is loaded with pristine visuals, nice eye candy indeed and not to forget a great soundtrack.

agreed. The Rock's performance in this one is his best yet.

Great review Mike! I keep hearing about The Rock's performance, I guess I am going to have to watch this one soon.

Thanks for the review, as always. Looking forward to this as the combo of Mark and the Rock sounded interesting from the get go. Just have to wait and pick it up used on blu about a month but I'm cheap.

Its a bit of a dark film and as a satire everyone's darker sides are blown up to epic proportions, but its wildly entertaining to see them play such unique characters. Plus its nice to see bay do such a mature film instead of his normal popcorn fare
The Rock's performance surprised me. Just a different character than usual. He did a great job.

I didn't know anything about the movie when I watched it. It was a "I heard it was good, let's rent it". I enjoyed it. Definitely messed up throughout, and some real weird parts, but a good movie.
