    If it had any extras I'd be tempted as it looks brilliant. Can't believe it has nothing on it at all.

    The lackluster nature of this release has me waiting for either a price drop, or a special edition.

    If it pops up here on the forums for a tenner, I might bite.

    It certainly is I only tend to use DVDworld If the gap between the US and UK releases are a good few months apart only ever bought The guilt trip (not mine dont judge me),Tinkerbell 3D and Jurassic Park 3D so don't mind paying £22 when I can sell it on for £18/19 after I have watched it then pick it up again when it lands over here!

    I saw this the other night...I can see some people loving it but I found it to be terrible. And this is coming from someone who used to watch Bad Boys II quite often (as a guilty pleasure mind), and I usually like Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie and Mark Wahlberg...but nah.

    Of course it's a silly bit of fun, but it's a right old mess...

    Well the post has been and gone but still no Pain & Gain.

    This leaves my last four from DVDWorldUSA as 8, 12, 8 and now 9+ days from dispatch to delivery. Add into that that they seem to be starting processing including charging on the Friday but not dispatching until the Monday and I'm beginning to think that they've lost their mojo.

    Has anyone got P&G from them yet?

    It just seems hit and miss, with certain titles. Freaked and Dark Angel took around a week, which is the norm for me, (none of this 3 days turnaround, I hear from people on the mainland). Cohen & Tate took closer to 12 days.

    Watched this last night and while I wouldn't say it was terrible it could have been better. Think the main problem is that none of the main characters are really likeable. Certainly something different from Mr Bay. Sound track was pretty good though.

    Not sure they were supposed to be likeable, given that the film is based on the true story of a gang who kidnapped and murdered. I actually thought it went a little too far in terms of lessening the impact of their crimes. The casting of goofball surprise-face Marky Mark didn't help in that respect. A lot of the events were fabricated for the film and all of the homophobic stuff is textbook Michael Bay.

    The UK trailer make sit look like an action comedy. In one respect it's a great trailer (for that very reason), but on the other hand it completely mis-sells the film.

    Yes that's the problem.
