5.0 out of 5 stars utterly authentic, 11 Mar. 2011
This review is from: The Town [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
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!

I liked your review. The way it was filmed, you almost feel as if you are WITH these characters in a tiny neighborhood bar. I've been to bars like the ones seen in "Town" - no, not in Boston & I'm not of Irish descent - but where I'd accompany my father as a lad (well, he'd bring me with him), little hole-in-the-wall 'hood bars where everyone knows nearly everyone else.

Just saw Gone baby gone yesterday night, as was blown away. I already know the town is a good film but i'd like to know if the dvd extras are any good. I tend to only buy blu-rays for films that I need to see in that sort of definition, and tend to find dvd fine otherwise. I do however need my extras, can't live without those.
