Pain And Gain Review | Bone-idle

Bone-idle writes "Based on a true story, Pain and Gain introduces us immediately to Daniel Lugo (Wahlberg), performing a brutal and impossibly manly work-out in a sleazy part of Miami. This opening shot is the most poignant and suggestive of the entire film, as it shows Lugo as the king of his estate, despite his estate being a run-down slum. He is confident, domineering and enthusiastic. As he himself puts it, he is a ‘doer’. It is a striking image, one that stands in direct contrast to almost the entirety of the ensuing film in order to coerce us into trying understanding his character. He is a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a vest, as it were."

its a strange one. the trailer makes it look like a completely different film. I really enjoyed it though. It is an amazing story with it being a true story and all. I'd recommend it for sure.
