Because this all revolves around Affleck, The Town is a curiosity; directed by him under another name and it would be forgettable.

The Town isn't original in any sense of the word, but Affleck does a marvelous job executing all of the pieces and is easily one of the best films of 2010.

A film can only be as riveting as its ability to have the audience believe or suspend belief, and though The Town takes steps toward authenticity, it fails to meet even the basic requirements of plausibility.

A crime thriller that is good more of the time than it's not, but suffers from the fact it should've been great.
December 24, 2010
A solid crime drama, with shades of Michael Mann's Heat, but a sluggish pace and meandering middle drag things down a little.

The cast is uniformly game, restrained, earthy, and will probably prove superior to at least half of those nominated for Oscars next year.
