Now before we all jump on Michael Bay for making nothing but awful movies, lets remember he directed The Rock, Bad Boys, and one of my favorite action movies of all time, Bad Boys II. I like that with Pain and Gain he’s getting back to telling a smaller story (by his standards) and it’s set in the 90’s, a time he knows extremely well having been a music video director.
His leads are Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie, and The Rock playing a bunch of juiced-up gym rats. I’m sold on that alone.
