While Live by Night was just a tad too long, I still enjoyed it far better than I thought I would. The story, plot, and characters were all well fleshed out (specific emphasis on Ben Affleck and Zoe Saldana). The movie is entertaining and exciting, telling a great story. While it's no Argo (Ben Affleck's most recent directorial film) it is still another solid hit for him.

'Live By Night" is a title of a gangster movie. that title sound like a vampire movie. Ben Affleck who direct, wrote and produced this movie came away empty with the is empty movie has lots of gangster violence and very little plot and characterization. As the films open Affleck told the audience that he entered World War One as a soldier but returned home as a gangster, and that's where the movie ends. Ben Affleck's acting is wooden with little emotional support. After getting arrested, he is sent to prison for a few years and by the end of the first reel, he ended up in florida to start a new life. His love interest is played by Zoe Saldana who in one scene did a erotic dance that reminds me of Jean Simmons whipping up the dance floor in "Guys and Dolls." The omnly compelling performance i n the movie is played by Elle Fanning who plays a former porn actress who turn herself into a born again Christian. I love one scene in the movie when her father played by Chris cooper gave her a spanking and I love that expression on her face. She's the only character who got my attention. Sadly,the is Ben Affleck follow up to "Argo," a much better movie. Sadly, "Live by Night" never came close.
