Last night I saw Michael Bay‘s Pain & Gain and let me be the first to tell you that it’s awesome. Seriously, it’s everything that I wanted out of a Bay-directed dark comedy, plus so much more. It makes up for all three Transformers films and it might even make up for Transformers 4.
Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie and Dwayne Johnson are absolutely perfect together. They maximize the odd comedy and promise you a film that will be quoted for years to come.
Pain & Gain is crazy, immature and almost downright offensive in how it tackles comedy, but I loved every single second of it and I can’t wait to check it out again.
It’s definitely not for everyone though.
With that being said I’d like to reveal some new images from the film, which highlights Bay’s crisp and always warm filming style, while also revealing just how jacked up some of the men had to get for their roles.
Pain & Gain opens next week on April 26th, 2013.
Do not miss it.
