Michael Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain‘ is in full swing in Florida, and here’ some new images of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in full action stealing bags from the ladies.
Many of the images coming off of Michael Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain‘ movie have been with Mark Wahlberg since he’s ballooned his muscles up like we’ve never seen before, but the guy that doesn’t need any more growing in that area, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is having some fun with his action shots. As you can see, the big lug gets to steal bags from women as his character rips them from their arms with ease. The wrestler turned actor has turned his career back on track much like Vin Diesel with ‘Fast Five‘. If you recall, both he and Diesel took the family comedy route a few too many times which wound up sullying their careers (and taking too many money gig jobs didn’t help either), so now both have focused back on what made them famous in the first place, and we’re all winning again.
‘Pain and Gain’ is based on a 2000 Miami New Times article about a pair of Florida steroid-abusing strongmen who become criminals involved in an extortion ring and a kidnapping plot that goes horribly wrong. Bay’s version is described as ‘Pulp Fiction’ meets ‘Fargo’. Two members of the real-life Sun Gym Gang wound up getting death sentences and are now on Florida’s death row. Nothing can go wrong when some Miami bodybuilders decide to start up a kidnapping and extortion ring, right?
