For almost a decade, Michael Bay was known as the director of Transformers. But before that, however, he was an action movie director that reveled in his R-rating, and loved to blow things up. And so, Pain and Gain is a return to form for the director – a return to the types of films that got him the Transformers job.
Starring The Rock, Mark Wahlberg, and Anthony Mackie, Pain and Gain tells the true story of three thick-skulled body-builders that moonlight as criminals. Things escalate from there, and before long the trio's running through the Michael Bay gamut – car chases, shootouts, enormous explosions.
Check out the trailer for Pain and Gain.
