Ben Affleck Impresses with "The Town"
Ben Affleck's "The Town" shows off his immense talent as a triple threat; writer, director, and actor. "The Town" follows a life long thief and criminal in his plotting of his latest heist. Watching this film makes the audience root for the bad guy, which shows the brilliance of Affleck's writing abilities. The cast, including Blake Lively, John Hamm, Jeremy Renner, and Pete Postlewaite, support Affleck's vision beautifully. I had little faith in Lively's performance but was pleasantly impressed with her portayl of Krista. In addition to the great character performances the action sequences kept the audience on the edge of their seats. All around, great film. Highly reccommended.
