On The Town

Bank robberies, gun fights, sex and betrayal. ‘The Town’, Ben Affleck’s latest adventure, is a film packed from start to finish with action and conflict. Probably the best film I have seen this year, it stars Jeremey Renner (of Hurt Locker fame), Rebecca Hall (the Prestige and Vicky Christina Barcelona) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men) among others.

Set in Charlestown, Boston, the plot is a violence-filled glimpse into the life of serial bank robber Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) as he falls for a girl mixed up in one of his heists. Claire falls for Doug, not knowing that he is the leader of the gang who abducted her during a robbery of her bank. Excellent performances from Affleck and co, a brilliantly gritty plotline and a healthy mix of violence and humour make this the must see film of 2010.
