Pain & Gain (11-Apr-2013)|
Director: Michael Bay
Writers: Christopher Markus; Stephen McFeely
From articles by: Pete Collins
Based-on-a-true-story action-comedy tells the story of Sun Gym, a notorious late-90s Miami gym that counted a crew of criminal bodybuilders amongst its members.
Mark Wahlberg and The Rock star in this ripped-from-the-headlines tale about con artist Daniel Lugo's release from prison for Medicare fraud and subsequent attempts to expand the membership of Miami's Sun Gym after being hired to do so by owner John Mese, an endeavor that ultimately turns criminal when Lugo develops a lust for the material wealth possessed by new gym client Victor Kershaw and decides to enlist the help of fellow bodybuilders to extort him. Pain & Gain received mixed-to-negative reviews upon its release, with most critics expressing concern at the amount of artistic license levied in the adoption of the Miami New Times article it was based off of.
