    Strong performances from the entire cast, tense direction, and heart-pounding heist scenes keep this film from sliding into a forgettable cops-and-robbers movie. Instead, The Town is a film worthy of its accolades. Affleck proves here that he deserved that Good Will Hunting oscar after all. 13 years 5 months ago

    Involving, solid acting, and some great car chases. 13 years 7 months ago

    Ben Affleck's The Town refers to a rough Boston neighborhood called Charlestown, which has apparently produced more bank robbers than any other place in the world, and Affleck uses real cases as fodder for this story of a tortured bank robber who wants out after falling for a bank manager (Rebecca Hall) one of his crew (the now ubiquitous Jeremy Renner) briefly took hostage. Meanwhile, the FBI (led by Don Draper--I mean Jon Hamm) is closing in. It's not an original story, but it's one that's well told. The action set pieces are exciting, the robbers are clever, and the drama is well acted. Affleck manages to get some big actors in small parts, but also use a lot of local color, casting the real people of Charlestown in bit parts so he could have authenticating experts on set. 10 years 6 months ago
