When Michael Bay is in full trashy mode, I'm in. I won't lie - I freaking adore the utter amorality of BAD BOYS 2. They invade Cuba in Hummers, for fuck's sake, and end up declaring war on a shanty village by running over many, many people. It's no one's idea of a classic, but it's a hell of a lot of fun. I tend to think movies like BAD BOYS 2 and the upcoming PAIN & GAIN showcase the REAL Michael Bay - a filmmaker who would rather use the millions at his disposal to make something truly morally reprehensible.
And PAIN & GAIN looks positively Coenesque, if that's even possible. Full of snappy dialogue, I think this just might be the Ultimate Michael Bay Movie. I can't believe I'm saying this, but this is one of my most anticipated movies of next year. Here's the trailer:
PAIN & GAIN opens in April 2013.
