Synopsis

Knuckleheaded Florida bodybuilding trio Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie are tempted by a life of crime and incompetently muscle their way into an extortion ring run by Tony Shalhoub's repulsive Miami business shark. However, their steroid-addled kidnap goes horribly wrong and they find events violently spiralling out of control. Director Michael Bay's first delve into dark comedy shows there's more to him than battling robots. An often sharp script, some genuinely engaging performances and MOR rock soundtrack display an unlikely touch of the Tarantinos.
