The Town

The Town(2010)

A gritty, kitchen-sink honest tale of four armed robbers who have been childhood friends that plan and carry out raids on armoured cars until one of the characters falls in love with the hostage (although hiding his identity) after a raid.

His romance with this woman realises that he no longer wants to live the life he's living and longs for redemption. He agrees to one final job, but not everything goes to plan.

A superb performance from Ben Affleck both as an actor and director (Gone Baby Gone showed his real directorial promise)shows that he has found himself after some films and can now (almost!) be forgiven for Gigli.

Very easily one of 2010's best films.
