I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I'm not usually a big fan of Ben Affleck (Pearl Harbor put me off!), but he is very good in this. The story is set in a rough neighbourhood, following the tale of a group of bank robbers. One of them (Affleck) is starting to develop a conscience and becomes involved with a woman who could be a potential witness. Meanwhile the FBI are busy hunting the gang down.

The real strength of the film lies in the relationships between the characters. Affleck is reasonably convincing as a robber starting to change his mind, and his love interest is sweet and naive and fails to spot that there is anything shady about him. Affleck's loyal but aggressive sidekick is played particularly well by Jeremy Renner, and the long-standing history between his character and Affleck's is portrayed exceptionally well. Interestingly, I found myself feeling some sympathy for the robbers - the idea that some people get stuck in a role they are expected to play was a strong theme of the film.

This is not a straightforward action film, nor even just a cat and mouse chase with the FBI, but more an examination of the people within the situation. That said, there are some very good action sequences too, some real suspense and excitement, and some strong violence and language. Really liked it - thought provoking and absorbing.

Great film that did not get the level of recognition it deserved when it first came out. Engaging story, brilliant cast. It would be hard to pick out just one or two performances as they're all stellar, Affleck, Renner, Postlethwaite, Lively, Hamm, Hall, Cooper. It has darkness and grit and light and hope. It's fun and action packed. The quality of the script and the acting enables it to pack a punch.

The Town is an interesting film it's not your usual cops and robbers, heist film.
Yes the Town features a bank robbery at the beginning but that is just the starting point of the film.
The film has an excellent cast, Jeremy Renner was oscar nominated for his role in the film, and watching it you can understand why.
Having read the book I was suprised at how closely it followed the story, so often all the book and film share is a title.
I don't want to give the plot away, but I would certainly recommend it.

The Town is an excellent heist film based around a group of 4 young men from Charlestown, America - a Boston suburb which in the real world holds the perverted honour of being bank robber central.

Apparently more bank robbers come from Charlestown than anywhere else. In fact its like a trade handed down from father to son, or even a past time - and this is the kernel of real world truth from which this great film has grown.

Indeed the film opens with a high octane bank heist based on a real robbery that took place in the area. One the cast members (many of whom hail from the area) say they remembered well.

In fact a bank worker, there on the day, was brought in to help supervise the shoot for authenticity, and he said the events were so exact it was like reliving the whole ordeal over again.

The attention to detail in this film made it real for him and its what helps make it real for viewers at home too. Even the masks in the opening scene were copies of ones used by a team of robbers, found in the files of the FBI.

The characters too felt real, and the dialogue and friendship amongst them seemed natural and believable. Ben Affleck's acting shined here in fact - with an accent that really brought his character to life.

In fact, I wonder if he's originally from the area as it seemed so effortless for him - but the delivery of his lines reminded me of a cross between Christopher Walken and Al Pacino. This film has made me look at Affleck in a new light.

Written by, directed and starring Ben Affleck he has pulled of quite an achievement. I watched the extended cut and it felt like a marathon of events, and although the story wasn't exactly ground breaking, that was part of its strength.

It felt real.

This is a tremendous film. The storyline may sound a bit cliched, but the film just works. The casting is fantastic - the characters are completely believable and although there are some well known actors there they just melt into the characters they play. The film looks and feels so authentic (in the way that the sopranos worked because the characters and locations and script were so 'real'). I won't reprise the storyline, but if you like intelligent and authentic action films with fully rounded characters then this is for you. It looks gritty and real, there is a very strong sense of real lives lived in real places and of how brutal some of those lives are. There are threads and layers which run through the film and don't have to be explained, but which add to the authenticity of the finished product. This really has to be one of the best films made in the last 10 years. Go on treat yourself, you're worth it and so is The Town!

Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) and his pals are career criminals. On a bank job, they briefly take a hostage (Rebecca Hall) and soon after, she and Doug begin a romance. He'd like to start a new life with her but he can't change his ways, and his next job is to rob Fenway Park.

This is an excellent movie. The characters are compelling and sympathetic and the script is fast-paced and intensely exciting. Affleck co-wrote and directed this tale of Charlestown, Boston, an area famous for its high percentage of deadly criminals. He captures the toughness and desperation of its inhabitants and the viewer feels a connection to the place and the people. Affleck is very good in his part and Jeremy Renner, who plays Doug's loyal but vicious buddy, was rightly nominated for Best Supporting Actor. The wonderful Chris Cooper has a small part as Doug's convict father.

The movie is full of brutal gunplay, car crashes, and bad language and still manages to portray Doug's sensitive side and have him emerge as a kind of hero. Its edge-of-your-seat action kept me engaged even though I don't usually like this kind of movie. Recommended.
