There are over 300 bank robberies in Boston every year. And a one-square-mile neighborhood in Boston, called Charlestown, has produced more bank robbers than anywhere in the U.S. One of them is Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck), the leader of a crew of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves on taking what they want and getting out clean. The only family Doug has are his partners in crime, especially Jem (Jeremy Renner), the closest thing Doug ever had to a brother. Things change when Jem takes a blindfolded hostage: bank manager Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). After the job, Doug seeks out Claire, who has no idea that this charming stranger is one of the men who terrorized her only days before. As his relationship with Claire deepens into a passionate romance, Doug wants out of this life and the town. But with the Feds, led by Agent Frawley (Jon Hamm), closing in and Jem questioning his loyalty, Doug realizes that getting out will not be easy and, worse, may put Claire in the line of fire.

  • A Must See

    A beautifully acted, directed, and written film well worth your time. One of my new favorites! A great film, more heart and philosophical messages than I had expected, which for me was a positive. Just know what you are getting into, more drama then action, but still with some amazing moments of suspense! Wish I had bought it and not just rented!
  • A stupid movie

    Spoiler alert The protagonist has everything he needs but there needs to be some sort of conflict so he falls in love with a hostage that he held at one time!?!?

    This is one of my favorite movies. I have a few "go to" movies when I'm bored or traveling, and "The Town" is certainly one of them.
  • Get it already!

  • Great Acting, Script Writing & Directing | Ben Affleck Triple Threat

    By Scotty Allman
    To think about how far Ben Affleck has come as an 'Artist' in my mind. From 'Good Will Hunting to 'The Town...I use to believe that Affleck was nothing less than a Character actor...I was certainly wrong not only has he found his falling as a Director, but you can tell he believes in the material and the commitment shows onscreen. Well done, and certainly worth watching.

    Total heart racer. My (a-hem) cheeks were clinched so tight from angst that I'm certain I could of cracked a walnut! Boston accents FTW! I would recommend this movie.

    The real robbery is the amount of money the people involved with this film made to produce such rank mediocrity.

    I think that I started becoming a fan of Ben Affleck before this movie; he has had a great career... but his talent (along with the entire cast) was seamless and perfect in this movie. I am writing this review years after it was made; but I still wanted to take the time to give it another 5 stars. If you haven't seen this movie yet; please check it out. It's violence and crime are overt but woven into the story with great style.
