is it funny because they are not human?
yeah, I'm looking forward to a Michael Bay movie
Pain & Gain is an upcoming action comedy film written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directed by Michael Bay. The film is based on a 1999 series of Miami New Times articles by investigative journalist Pete Collins about "a couple of Florida steroid-abusing knucklehead bodybuilders who become criminals involved in an extortion ring and a kidnapping plot that goes horribly awry." The film is scheduled for a release date of April 26, 2013.
looks like it could be pretty funny
is it funny because they are not human?
At least it has a nice grill. Although they should be drug out into the street and shot for using lighter fluid for cooking food...
It wouldn't be a Michael Bay trailer without a giant explosion at the end. He's doing it on purpose now.
I've been following this movie and I actually hoped Bay was kind of going to make a Drama. Like every Bay movie it looks entertaining but I cant help but wonder if he took on something serious, Bay isnt a terrible director, he just stays with that terrible formula
Will watch for the Rock. Will regret it due to Marky Mark & Bay.
Counter proposal: I go home and jerk-off
Read the articles. Holy shit. That's some fucked up stuff man.
" I wonder if you are destined to be forgotten. Will your life fade in the shadow of greater beings?"
And holy crap, just finished reading the real life story. Can't believe this is being made into an action comedy, what those guys did is some seriously sick twisted shit.
mark wahlberg looks fat. perhaps he should have actually used some steroids while training for the film? the rock looks like a fucking monster. i really wish this wasn't a michael bay movie. seems like it would be better if a more serious director/producer was behind it. seems like it should be dark as fuck, maybe like "fargo." instead, because it's michael bay, it will more than likely be terrible.
That said, the movie seems to be kind of an odd twist on a pretty fucked up story. If I were the victims' families, I would be kind of disgusted.
Jesus, just read the whole story. Great link.
Why the fuck would they make this into a bro-comedy? If I were a family member I'd be fucking furious. Hollywood is gay.
It'd be great if this were marketed as a bro-comedy but the movie fit the original material completely.
Also, before watching the preview but after reading that 40 page essay about the case - I would have bet anything The Rock would have been Lugo and Marky Mark was portraying the Doorbal guy. Seemed odd and didn't sync with what I'd pictured. I guess the Rock's character is totally made up for the movie...
I want to see this....but knowing the real story that inspired it and the fact they turned it into a comedy...I'm not sure I can.
Yeah they shouldnt even try to say its based on a real story, im sure 30 seconds or less was more accurate to the bomb story but they said it had nothing to do with those events atleast. I mean at least say inspired, not "This is a true story"

If anything, this is the type of movie that has an excuse to pirate and not support.
That story was amazingly fucked up. What the hell...?
Just finished reading that loooong article... This is like Fargo, in Miami. Yet I'm not really sure we're going to see Wahlberg and the Rock in the light they SHOULD be shown in. Could be wrong /shrug Bay seems like the complete opposite of who you'd want portraying this story. Just seems fucked up all around.
I can see how some of it could be humorous, as they were pathetically incompetent in many ways. That is only if you skim over it and don't really think about the content. Any kind of level of higher thought and serious consideration and you have to realize this is an example of really horrible and vile side of humanity.
If you read the full accounting of the events it is really quite disgusting, yet this movie, or at least the commercial I keep seeing makes it seems like adorable bumbling robin hood types. That these guys who kidnapped, murdered, tortured and robbed people are really just good guys trying to earn an honest buck off a bad guy. It is rather sickening.
Yeah, I said as much back in December after reading the article.
I mean, it's one thing to make a dark-comedy about your family members' murders, but to have Michael Bay direct it is simply unforgivable.
This story has black comedy written all over it. And much like real life, no one was innocent, except maybe Griga's girlfriend. Incompentent, bureaucratic cops, people who got wealth out of fraud and the sex trade, dumbass stripper girls, 'roided out dipshits who want everything the easy way, the fucking feds who would apparently have let everybody go just to get one fraudulent schemer. Add in that special Michael Bay touch and you've got a hilarious movie that might be so funny it'll make people think. Yes, I just said that about a fucking Michael Bay flick. This is his Apocalypse Now. His Citizen Kane. This is the movie he was made to direct. Tits, explosions and fires, dumbass 'roidheads glistening in the Miami sun and I guarantee a fucking American flag in there somewhere. This is going to be such a clusterfuck of the worst of humanity seen through Bay's lens. It's going to be brilliant. Like a dog run over on a South American highway, whose blood makes a Virgin Mary or something.
the special michael bay touch? you mean the explosions and car chases he puts in every one of his movies for the brain dead masses?
Yeah, avoiding this movie. Will pirate later, hope it flops. Only good thing from it is having it shed more light on that horrific story.
Can someone give a quick synopsis of what happened? I read part 1 and half of part 2, and it was shitty but I was at work and felt like I was wasting way too much time.
In a very basic summary;
Guys that worked at gym were tired of training people who had lots of money. They kidnapped, horrifically tortured and murdered those same people and took their money.
Sounds hilarious, quit whining.
Wow, surprised this is the line in the sand for alot of you guys. All the shit across these boards, the internet, TV, Movies etc.
And this is where you boycot? On a Bromance Comedy loosely based on something bad?
Something tells me this is fake outrage because you dont like Michael Bay (No one does).
Better boycott SNL for making Pistorius jokes!
Haha even the tranny loving faggot isn't butthurt about this movie. Some real pussies in this thread.
I don't mind Michael Bay at all really. I am however against financially supporting making light of torture and murder by pretending it was a good ol' time.
Mind you I'll still watch it, but I'm pirating it.
If it ends up being a good movie I'll admit it is. -shrug-
Like I was saying, the should have handled this like 30 minutes or less and make no references to the real story
But THIS movie was too much. You wont support profit based on THIS movie. Meanwhile you live a life built by the tears of others.
Fuck you. Shut up.
I don't recall money leaving my pocket that was at the expense of slaves from 150 years ago. I like the gays and who has an issue with muslims? Don't project your life onto me.
Idiot. Also, learn how to condense your posts and not double post like a tranny loving faggot.
Prety sure every tax payinf American is a supporter of Slavery. You married? Where did that Diamond come from? Using an iphone? You get my point.
And I didnt say you even paid directly. You live in a country built on the blood of others. You profit from the slave work of the indiginous population of WHO CARES. And you want to whine like a bitch about a MICHAEL BAY COMEDY.
Get some perspective.
Still waiting on citation for tranny loving faggot. It confuses me. You may live life like that, but we all dont.
And ill be damned if some slavery loving biggot wants to stifle my post count
I mean I do like Trannies. Sexy as fuck. But seems odd you people know about it. I didnt know I put that out there.
Goliath, where you at?
Holy shit. From my rep sheet apparently this movie is our generations civil rights movement. Yikes.
Prolly getting banned because I dont think this looks stupid and think you guys shit on it for no reason. Have fun. apparently you cant IM anyone either.
I'm pretty sure kidnapping, torture and extortion aren't represented by the civil rights movement.
Anyways, you need to chill out man and stop rapid fire posting, and bad posting at that.
Thats true. But lets get of the high horses. If this was a Fincher flick we would be on page 30. Instead people champion a cause they never heard of. And its pathetic.
Never heard of? The Fuck? Maybe if you're only 18 or whatever but in the mid 90's it was a big deal.
5 posts in a row? Where are our anal retentive mods?
He was infraction for it, he seems to think I was wrong to do so.
I concur. Why not a simple "hey douche I'm a mod, please stop doing that or I'll start infracting you"
The guy lives in Buffalo. Hasn't he suffered enough?
I think he wanted you to combine the posts. I think you should change his title to Tranny Loving Faggot. Either is preferable to infractions.
LoL, I'll remember that in the future.
Maybe next time I'll do both in order to make up for my shortsightedness this time around.
I'm pretty excited for it, actually. I thought it looked decent before reading the real story.
Then again I have nothing against Michael Bay. He certainly doesn't make cinematic works of art, but his movies are some of the best popcorn flicks around.
I feel the same about Bay, I've nothing against him and I've said myself the same as you, he makes good popcorn flicks.
so is it a good popcorn flick or should i just turn on wwe if i want my THE ROCK FIX?

Your justification in life is merely self serving. Imagine if society was 100% people like you, fuck living in that place.

It's not out yet, shit-for-brains.
Well when it comes out April 26th I'm sure someone will be able to tell you.
WTF? Pearl Harbor anyone?
Went and saw this over the weekend. I was really looking forward to it as I love the Rock and the premise was amusing. It was average at best, I was a little disappointed but still found it entertaining. Worth a matinee/rental for sure.
Does the fact that I'm trying to do it do it for you?
on steam - notafunhater
^ The movie was a solid 6/10. I was hoping for a little more, but it's still worth a watch if you're bored. Once.
Good, now I feel my future pirating of it is even further justified.
Saw it last night. I'd say it's definitely worth watching once, but no more. It's such a weird mix of comedy, what the fuck moments, and never knowing what stupid choices they were going to make next.
