When i first sat down to watch this film I wasn’t expecting it to be anywhere as good as it was, first and foremost because I have never been a fan of Ben Affleck and always regarded him as that bloke who once dated Jennifer Lopez, but my opinion of him has now completely changed. The Town is, in my opinion near perfect with some great cinematography of Boston, Massachusetts and some spell binding action sequences. Written
directed and starring Affleck as Doug Macray, the cast of The Town all give a great performance including the ever brilliant Jeremy Renner, who plays James “Jem” Coughlin. It was also nice to see the late great Pete Postlethwaite in a supporting role as the local crime lord “Fergie” Colm who runs a small florists and rapper Slaine who plays Albert “Gloansy” Magloan. The Town owes a great deal To Michael Manns Heat , but that in my opinion can only be a good thing and I urge anyone into crime films to check this out immediately.
