One Sentence: A lot smaller movie than you think it will be.
Running Time: Not listed
Release Date: 17-Sep-2010
In the last week I have seen Affleck on like 3 different shows. The Town trailers are all over the TV, I have seen previews in the theaters and posters everywhere. The impression I got about this movie that it was quite hyped and a large Hollywood movie. After having seen it, everything about The Town was perfectly small in size. The cast, story, sets and feel of the movie all fit into a much smaller package than expected, and that made for a very good movie.
It had a small group of characters and while dealing with things like Boston, Bank Robberies and the FBI it never lost track of who was the focus of the movie and kept the small town neighborhood feel that I think Affleck was going for. It felt personal and real, focused and well directed. It really made for a smart well written crime drama that was directed beautifully all while delivering some solid action.
This weekend movie choice is a hard one. There are so many movies coming out this weekend. Catfish, Easy A, Leaves Of Grass, and I cringe to say it, Devil. If you are into crime dramas this is an easy choice, you should have a great time with The Town. It is a very good movie worth spending your money on. Of all the movies I have seen so far for this weekend, I would pick The Town as my first choice, but I haven't seen Easy A or Devil, so your guess is as good as mine.
