Based on the true story of Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) a Miami bodybuilder who wants to live the American dream. He would like to have the money that other people have. So he enlists the help of fellow bodybuilder Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie) and ex-convict, Christian bodybuilder Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson). Their kidnapping and extortion scheme goes terribly wrong since they have muscles for brains and they're left to haphazardly try to hold onto the elusive American dream.

First off the cast. I'm a Mark Wahlberg fan but he was about the only good thing for the casting in this movie. Rebel Wilson was as annoying as she always is in her films. The Rock does another mediocre acting job. Seriously how can anyone look at Tony Shalhoub as a serious actor. That's why he gets roles like his Monk character because he can only pull off something requiring him to be a bumbling idiot! I liked the bodybuilder aspect who essentially break bad. It's pretty cool that it's based on a true story. Not the greatest movie but not terrible. If you can stream it then go for it and watch it. 5.5/10
