Ben Affleck directs and star in this crime darma called "The Town." The film takes a honest look ata part of Boston called Charlestown, where bank robbies are higher than the national avenge. Affleck plays the leader of a gang of bank robber who go from banmks and trucks, holding them up and get away scott free. One bank they robbed, they took a woman hostage. Later in the moivie Ben falls for the girl, oplayed by Rebecca Hall. And though their relatioship, Affleck wanted out. But thgat won't be easy. I like the way Affleck directed this movie. Even though tghis movie isd nabout bank robbies, he had a honest description of Charleston in gerneral. Even thgough lots of bank robbies are going on, the people of Charlestown are honest and hard working people.
Brilliant movie.. Excellent production and acting by Ben Affleck.. 'Must see..
Ben Affleck proves that Gone Baby Gone was no fluke. He shows himself here to be an excellent film maker capable of both drama and action. Excellent acting by all main actors and a very good screenplay that never ventures into cliche. excellent movie.
Very well done.
