Pain & Gain - DVD Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
DIRECTOR Michael Bay’s hilarious dark comedy Pain & Gain gets pumped on Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand from December 23, 2013, from Paramount Home Media Distribution.
Based on an unbelievable true story, Pain & Gain stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie as a group of personal trailers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.
Adapted for the screen by writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely from articles written by journalist Pete Collins, Pain & Gain also stars Tony Shalhoub (Monk), Ed Harris (A History of Violence), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), Ken Jeong (The Hangover) and Bar Paly (The Ruins).
The story focuses on a trio of hapless criminals led by Mark Wahlberg’s pissed off, body building personal trainer Daniel Lugo, and including Dwayne Johnson’s ex-con Paul Doyle and Anthony Mackie’s Adrian Doorbal.
Desperate to better themselves and realise their American Dream, the trio kidnap a businessman (Tony Shalhoub) without reckoning on his refusal to be intimidated and eventually find themselves in a situation way over their heads and in the cross hairs of a dogged former detective (Ed Harris).
Miami. Muscles. Money. Murder. Watch Pain & Gain on Digital, Blu-ray or DVD this December.
