The Town (2010)
I watched the Blu Ray extended version. It runs 2 hours and thirty minutes. I liked the original version which was just over two hours. Even with the extra half hour the movie really moves.
Ben Afleck as a director and a star has become very bankable and his name in the credits almost guarantees satisfaction. The Town is a great gritty heist movie. It has many similarities to Heat, but if I had to pick the better movie it would be The Town. My only quibble was the sachrine ending.
It was a box office and critical hit. Both as a star and director Its Aflecks best movie to date.
