From director Michael Bay comes “Pain & Gain,” a new action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. Based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.
Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson and Bar Paly also star. The film is based on magazine articles by Pete Collins.
While this has the usual Bay trappings of explosions, slow motion and a spinning camera it does look rather good. A smaller story than his recent Transformer films and some good actors involved mean this could be one to watch.
It opens on April 26th.
