Pain & Gain Reviews

Richard Knight
Windy City Times

An often hilarious black comedy with a nicely embedded moral.

While Pain & Gain often frustrates, Bay's overwhelming cinematic sense is undeniable.

Michael Bay has finally made a film worthy of deep consideration.

Watching Pain & Gain might give you testosterone poisoning, but it's easily Michael Bay's funniest and most interesting work to date.

While not a faithful re-enactment of a horrific true story, Pain & Gain will certainly please those looking for cheap thrills

The Aristocrat

...the film occasionally approaches something resembling satire. Bay's attempts at humour are not always insightful though - a dead woman's breast implant still gets giggled.

Movie Talk

Michael Bay's lurid crime comedy Pain & Gain is as excessively pumped-up as you would imagine, a berserk, overblown action movie on steroids.

We Got This Covered

Pain & Gain is Michael Bay's best film yet, fusing his high-octane and in-your-face directing style with pitch black comedy that makes for the funniest film of 2013.

This is Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson straining every sinew to deliver the heavy duty performance of his career.

Might this be the best Michael Bay film ever? We know what you're thinking. But we mean it in a good way.

The closest Michael Bay's natural style for flash really feels like an organic extension and expression of the material's narrative and characters rather than mere surface gloss.

The performances are first class and help make you warm to the lunkheaded trio against your better judgement.

The uneasy blend of comedy and ultra-violence will turn some viewers off but, if you can stomach it, you may find yourself curiously entertained.

Guardian

There's something inspired about putting Michael Bay in charge of a brazen action-comedy about gym-pumped knuckleheads who screw up their own criminal masterplan most royally.

Spirited and very funny, this movie should actually be rather disturbing since it's a true story about torture and murder.

The Skinny

A scabrous satirical swipe at not only the knuckle-headed machismo the director seems so enthralled by, but also at an America crippled by consumerism.

Sky Movies

Labelling a Michael Bay movie thoughtful is like calling Transformers cerebral...but this is a lot more stimulating than we've come to expect even if reverts to shoot 'em up type by the end of its pumped up running time.

A bleak, bitter, wicked pleasure that holds up the underpinnings of modern America - self-help, Jesus, and violence - for ridicule.

The first hour may be Bay's career high point: it's fast, freaky, gloriously tasteless and startlingly pointed in its attacks on western insecurity, shallowness and greed.

Ultimately, cinema is a form of entertainment and this picture does nothing but entertain.
