  • While I love the Rock I’m disappointed by the success of “Pain & Gain”. After reading the true-life torture and dismemberment of this gang’s victims, I hoped it wouldn’t be successful. Marc Schiller, one of the victims that they drove over in a car twice, said, “The way they tell it made it look like a comedy. You also gotta remember that not only I went through this, but certain people were killed, so making these guys look like nice guys is
    atrocious.” http://www.chasingthefrog.com/reelfaces/pain-and-gain.php
