The Town (2010)


After Gone Baby Gone, I had pretty high expectations for another Ben Affleck movie set in Boston. Unfortunately, this one fell short. For a guy who plans and executes expertly-timed heists, Doug showed remarkably poor judgment when he started spending time with Claire. It was too out of character, but since that one relationship was basically the crux of the whole movie, I just couldn't get into it. I was unsatisfied with the ending, too. It did have some strong elements, e.g., Doug's personal history, and the way bank robbery was portrayed as a family business.
