Exclusive: Criminal Buffoonery in 'Pain & Gain'
December 02, 2013
Michael Bay's Pain & Gain is back with a Special Collector's Edition Blu-ray, out on Tuesday, and we've got an exclusive clip from the bonus features showing what it was like for the cast to portray the real-life criminal buffoons responsible for the entertaining plot!
"Dumb criminals are funny, and this movie's so absurd," says Bay. "Actually the more wacky stuff in this movie is very, very true stuff."
Based on a true story, Pain & Gain follows a trio of Miami bodybuilders (played by Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) looking to move up in the world, so they hatch a plan to kidnap a local crime boss (played by Tony Shalhoub) and extort him for his money. Of course, once they get to live large, that's where the real pain begins.
The initial Blu-ray release of Pain & Gain was low on carbs and even lower on bonus features, but the Special Collector's Edition Blu-ray is packed with extras including a digital copy of the film and Still A True Story: Ripped From The Headlines; Back to Basics: Michael Bay’s Vision; American Dreamer: Daniel Lugo; Passion Player: Paul Doyle; Dirty Work: Adrian Doorbal; Victimless Crime: Victor Kershaw; Diamonds in the Rough: Locations and The Real Deal: Law Enforcement.
