A violent but fun movie which is based on a true story. And keeps this in mind. It's based on a true story, no matter how weird the filmn gets. I'd rather put this under the catogory of "You Can't Make this thing Up." Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson (His third movie and it's not even Summer yet.) played body builders who got into the kidnapping and extortion business. Things get out of hand and toward the end of the movie the filmmakers remind the audience that it is based on a true story. Rebel Wilson is in this movie. She played a far better performance than the one in "Pitch Perfect." Once you get past the violence, you will have fun with the movie. I'll remind you again: This is based on a True Story.
