Pain and Gain Review: Michael Bay Brings the Muscle

by at .  Updated at .

Michael Bay has achieved his best work with Pain and Gain. I know some of you are thinking that is not saying much, but there is something uniquely surprisingly sensational about the true story of a trio of bodybuilders and their real life crime spree in 1990s Miami that transcends everything else the director has ever produced.

    Pain & Gain is what it looks like when Michael Bay decides he wants to make a little movie, as opposed to another action epic. The director known for making bombastic action blockbusters has taken a step back to make a smaller film based on a true story, but it does not mean he put his signature style in check. Pain & Gain is very glossy film, gorgeous at times, and certainly not subtle. It is also an incredibly dark comedy, with a story so ridiculous that it has to be true, and it is. Based on a true crime story, this film does its best to depict what happens when seemingly good-natured crooks get in way over their heads and resort to drastic measures to achieve their American dream. While Bay's style can be grating for some, the mix of a strong cast and a messy, but compelling story makes this a film with a lot more going on than the standard Bay blockbuster. You want to be the same as they?
