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.
Without having to worry about giant robots or special effects so much, director Michael Bay gets the chance to properly exercise his talent for film comedy, a quality that laces a lot of his films and that too many critics are loathe to acknowledge.
Michael Bay, burdened with glorious purpose, pours his everything into Pain & Gain; the closest thing to an indie-spirited passion project he will likely ever make... It works. I can't believe this thing actually works.
