The Sun Gym Gang, consisting of bodybuilders Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) and Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie), plot to kidnap Victor Kershaw, a wealthy businessman. Enlisting the help of newly-released criminal Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson), the gang tortures Kershaw and successfully get him to sign over all his assets.

But things take a major twist when Kershaw recruits Detective Ed Du Bois (Ed Harris) to catch the criminals. Now, the Sun Gym Gang must find a way to silence Kershaw.
