Let World-Herald film critic Bob Fischbach catch you up to speed with two new flicks in the theater.
The Company You Keep (R) Robert Redford directs and stars in this crime drama about a wanted 1960s radical whose secret identity comes to light. Essentially an all-star chase movie, it’s a glimpse over the shoulder at history, reflecting on the cost of secrets kept and revealed. Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Nick Nolte co-star. Fine for mature teens. 3 stars.
Pain & Gain (R) Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie star as dim-bulb bodybuilders who kidnap an obnoxiousmillionaire, intending to torture him till he signs over his assets and then kill him. Based on a true story, this comedy misdirected by Michael Bay isn’t very funny. Profanity, crude sexuality, gore. 2 stars.
