The Town (USA 2010)

Director: Ben Affleck

Cast: Ben Affleck, Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner

Venues: Movieplex Cinema Plaza, The Light Cinema, Hollywood Multiplex, Patria, Cinema City Cotroceni, Cinema City Sun Plaza


Directed by Ben Affleck, who also stars, the film is set in the Charlestown area of Boston, which has produced an inordinate number of criminals; specifically, bank robbers. Among the multi-generational families of robbers is Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck), whose father (Chris Cooper) is doing hard time for slayings associated with a robbery years before. Doug is part of a crew of slick professionals that includes James (Jeremy Renner).This is a top-quality ensemble piece. Your visit to “The Town” will be memorable. The Town sees a lot of action, and here Affleck excels. He’s clearly aware of the legacy left by films like Point Break and Heat, but proves himself worthy of adding to the genre with some cracking pace, kinetic editing and high tension. As an electric heist film played out with an impressive ensemble cast, and grounded in a believably earnest sense of place, Affleck proves Gone Baby Gone was no beginners luck.
