Film Description ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub


Michael Bay


Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson play pumped-up kidnappers in this tongue-in-cheek comedy. Bodybuilder Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) works at the Sun Gym in Miami. When wealthy businessman Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub) turns up at the gym, it gives cash-strapped Lugo an idea. He formulates a risky plan to kidnap Kershaw and extort his money by means of torture. He even enlists the help of recently-released criminal Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson). But while the guys' abs may be impressive, their extortion skills aren't - and when the plan goes horribly wrong, Kershaw hires private investigator Du Bois (Ed Harris) to catch his assailants. Based on the true story of the Sun Gym Gang, Pain and Gain sees mega-director Michael Bay taking a completely different direction to his Transformers blockbusters. With entertainingly meat-headed performances from Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, this is an outrageous blend of testosterone-fuelled thriller and jet-black comedy.

Tickets ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you have a Cineworld Unlimited card you need to show this at the box office to collect a free ticket. Otherwise please just buy your own ticket in the normal way (if you book online in advance you may be able to get a 10% discount, eg £11.70 instead of £13). Please note extra charge for 3D movies and also for 3D glasses. If you own them please bring them with you. Details of charges on website below.

London Cinema Meetup hosts a lot of events at Cineworld cinemas (usually for seeing the latest releases, most commonly in the West End). If you like watching films regularly (more than once a month) it might be cheaper to buy a Cineworld Unlimited card for £18.90 a month - this allows you to watch as many films as you like at Cineworld cinemas (including the ones we normally use in the West End, in Shaftesbury Avenue or in Haymarket). It also gives you a 10% discount off food and drink bought in the cinemas, and some local discount offers too. There is a cheaper version of the card for £15.90, but this is not valid for the Cineworld cinemas in the West End. Currently there is an offer of getting 'one free month' if you sign up using the promotion code below:


This code has to be entered in the payments section under "promotions".
Please check terms and conditions. To obtain a card you can use this website (you will need a digital photo of your face, which will appear on the card to identify you):
