The Town (2010)

IMDb link

Directed by: Ben Affleck
Starring: Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, Blake Lively, others.
Release date: October 14, 2010 (UAE)

With The Town, Ben Affleck again proves how good a director he is, and that his first film was no fluke. Affleck has a knack for telling a story for the big screen, and combined with his writing – some wonderful lines these characters speak, although in a Bostonian accent that is not easy to decipher – Affleck successfully joins the ranks of some of the best writer-directors in contemporary Hollywood. The Town does suffer somewhat of a predictable storyline, probably owing more to the book the movie is based on, yet maintains a riveting human drama through its runtime.
