The new film from director Michael Bay, Pain & Gain, is based on a true story involving kidnapping, torture and murder. The criminals were bodybuilders who worked out at the same gym in Miami. “Daniel Lugo” (Wahlberg) was a personal trainer at the gym, which was owned by “John Mese” (Corddry). Lugo got himself hired by promising to triple the membership, which he did. But he wanted more from life, especially after attending a success seminar put on by “Johnny Wu” (Jeong); who divided people into two groups. Doers and Donters. Lugo wanted to be a doer.
