Daniel Lugo, manager of the Sun Gym in 1990s Miami, decides that there is only one way to achieve his version of the American dream: extortion. To achieve his goal, he recruits musclemen Paul and Adrian as accomplices. After several failed attempts, they abduct rich businessman Victor Kershaw and convince him to sign over all his assets to them. But when Kershaw makes it out alive, authorities are reluctant to believe his story.

Viewing Notes

Hmm, tough rating for me. 8+ for the superb acting esp. Johnson and Wahlberg and Shalhoub. But just not interested in this story about dumb people doing dumb things. But it’s very well made and looks great. I suppose it’s worth viewing for those reasons but just not the movie for me.
