      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It may be his most thought-provoking film to date, but Michael Bay's Pain & Gain ultimately loses its satirical edge in a stylized flurry of violent spectacle.

      Connor S Sad story with characters that are at times uncomfortably likable. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Kauã M The film portrays the characters at times in a very idiotic way, what can save it is the charisma of the actors and scenes that are quite comical, however the film goes on doing the same thing which ends up making it a bit disgusting. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Y K It's a very dynamic and entertaining movie, there's always something happening. P&G has lots of dark humor, vulgar dialogues and scenes. All in all it was nice to watch Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/29/23 Full Review Michael L This movie is awesome. Extremely funny, very entertaining, unbelievable story. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/28/23 Full Review Brent H I enjoyed the oldish oldie type or style of narration! Some of the plot points are pretty dark, though, viewers beware... Overall about on par with what everyone else rated this movie at about half likability Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review Axel A One of my favorite movies. Do not know why. Maybe decent acting? Something that is sorely missing in some "universe" that we are being stuck down our throats. Maybe. Good flick, give it a watch and forget the flak.

      Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk For [Michael Bay], storytelling exists only to justify senselessly bashing some big shiny noisy stuff into other big noisy shiny stuff till your ears bleed for mercy. Rated: 2/5 Sep 5, 2017 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire Maybe he's trying to do 'GoodFellas'-style dark comedy (the copious voice-overs would certainly suggest it), but put as charitably as possible, Bay is no Scorsese. Jun 21, 2016 Full Review Nick Pinkerton Sight & Sound While Pain & Gain often frustrates, Bay's overwhelming cinematic sense is undeniable. Jun 6, 2014 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The felonies fall apart due to phenomenal stupidity - and audiences are supposed to laugh at the extreme amateurishness of this band of beefy crooks. Rated: 4/10 Dec 4, 2020 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Adds up to more pain than gain. Rated: 2.0/4.0 Sep 19, 2020 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) A tonally erratic and consistently irksome true-crime farce that plays out like a GoodFellas for Dummies. Rated: 2/5 Sep 11, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
