Synopsis: A trio of bodybuilders in Florida get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong
Release Date: April 26, 2013
Thoughts: First and foremost, this film is notable for being action picture director Michael Bay’s least expensive film since Bad Boys. Aside from that, I’m not sure if this is going to convince any of his naysayers to jump on board after producing some fairly brain-dead entertainment courtesy of the Transformers franchise. Also, though I have enjoyed Rebel Wilson in Pitch Perfect and What To Expect When You’re Expecting, I feel like she’s playing the same character time and time again. Dwayne Johnson isn’t a bad actor…but I continue to question his choice of roles as he seems to go wherever the paycheck is. While this could be a nice departure film for Bay, I’m not holding my breath he’s seen the error of his obnoxious directorial ways.
