Pain & Gain fails at being an entertaining and ridiculously fun Michael Bay movie and curdles into something much more tone deaf and obnoxious. It isn't necessarily Michael Bay's worst movie, but it might be his most overworked and least effective.
I didn't hate watching this movie, it held my interest. It's way too long at over two hours, and even if it was a breezy 85 minute joyride, it would still have that fatal flaw: Michael Bay is the guy calling the shots.
