"Surprisingly solid film. Not going to win awards or anything, but if Affleck can continue to make these kinds of movies, I'll be happy."

The Town

“THE TOWN begins with what appears to be a voiceover in which our protagonist is talking about the characters and situations that will be unfolding during the next two hours. This didn't surprise me because Ben Affleck's last directorial effort (GONE BABY GONE) began similarly with a sublime, observant voiceover from its lead character. The shock comes when we realize that what we're actually hearing is Doug (Affleck, here doing double duty as actor/director) imparting instructions to his partners on how to go about the bank heist that they're about to perform. It's a wonderfully jarring introduction to what is a generally intense and satisfying action drama.

Doug and his team enter the bank wearing masks and they're soon selecting one of the employees to help them open the safe. ” read more

Ben Affleck's got a new career.

“"I'm puttin this whole town in my rear view"

a long-time thief tries to manage his personal relationship with a bank manager, as well as an FBI agent aiming to track him and his crew down.

The Town Directed by, and starring Ben Affleck, is the second installment in his directorial career, and focuses on a group of Boston thieves. Like Gone baby gone, this film takes place within a very similar location; Boston, Ma. The two movies are very similar in their vibe, character development, darkness, and grittiness. However, unlike his previous installment, The Town focuses a little more on violence, and is much faster paced. I give Affleck credit for mixing in the perfect amount of bloodshed, while co-existing perfect storytelling, and giving the audience emotions towards eac” read more

How do you call 'Cut!'? (13 movies items)

"Ben Affleck is the latest in a line of actors who have taken to directing. He does a creditable job again, proving that "Gone Baby Gone" was no fluke. Actor or Director? Director, by majority decision. While his acting skills are decidedly limited, Affleck has proven himself impressively capable behind the camera and as a scriptwriter too (this movie, Good Will Hunting). He should stick to what he does best, and it's not acting."
