RPad.TV's Raymond Padilla reviews Michael Bay's Pain & Gain: "The maestro extraordinaire of big, dumb movies, Michael Bay, is with Pain & Gain. While it’s certainly not his biggest movie (hard to top space rocks and transforming robots), it’s definitely his dumbest…but in a good way. For a large portion of the flick, Bay’s manic directing style, hilarious performances, and sharp writing come together marvelously. The only problem is if you know about the real-life story Pain & Gain it based on. If you do, then having a blast with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson can be uncomfortable and morally questionable. Here are some spoiler-free thoughts on the movie."
