The Town

The Town(2010)

Essentially, The Town is a tale of star-crossed lovers mixed up in some dirty mobster business. Most aspects of the characters and premise are pretty shop-worn. The ending wasn't what I expected, and was actually pretty poignant in my opinion.

I know white trash east coasters have dirty mouths, but having your characters say 'fuck' every two seconds doesn't make them more real. Unless you're Quentin Tarantino, it makes your script lose all quotability, and just gets annoying. Try using different words. They're more interesting.

I can't knock the performances though, cause they were all pretty great. Unless we're talking about the SWAT teams. According to Ben Affleck, three pinned down bank robbers > an entire police force. All I have to say about that is tear gas.
