. Robbers - of banks and " armored cars " - that get away with robbery , til the robbers don't get away with robbery .

What a film! "The Town" is a powerful testament to the skills of Ben Affleck, who did triple duty as the co-writer, director, and star of this taut, exciting crime-thriller. The film is set in Charlestown, the oldest neighborhood in the city of Boston, a one-square mile hotbed of drugs, muggings, armed robberies and other assorted nefarious activities. Affleck plays a member of a gang of second-generation criminals who were born and raised in ... and seemingly unable to escape from ... this toxic environment.

Really good heist movie, with surprisingly deep characterizations- I enjoyed this movie quite a lot. A thinking man's action movie.

This is a 2010 American crime-action drama directed, co-written by and starring Ben Affleck, adapted from Chuck Hogan's novel "Prince of Thieves."
The story is gripping, giving you thrills at the edge of your seat.
It is one of the most breath-taking and suspenseful entertaining movies.
Like the similar good action flicks, it is lean, fast-paced and efficient, which shows evidence of Affleck’s skill and self-confidence as a director.

Not very surprising glorification of thieves.

There's a lot to like about this movie. The friends and the neighbourhood where they grew up and plied their trade - I liked the vicarious experience we get of life in Charlestown. The cat and mouse game the four knowingly play with the FBI. The almost pedestrian approach to violence and crime - truly memorable "we're gonna hurt some people" scene when Doug (Affleck) and James (Renner) send a message to a couple of local neighbourhood thugs. The dialogue is smart with many memorable lines and Jeremy Renner was spot on in his delivery - here, he's talking to Doug (Affleck) about their upcoming bank robbery - "I can't do any more time Douggie...so if we get jammed up, we're holding court on the street.." - it's said matter-of-fact, without bravado and we see, for this man, the world's clear and simple, black and white.

FBI S.A. Adam Frawley: Now, we're a long way away from a grand jury here... and we'll never get 24 hour surveillance unless one of these idiots converts to Islam. So, we build the case. Alright, let's get to work.

Claire Keesey: Did you say your name was Jim or Gem?
James Coughlin: Well, huh, it's kinda both. The teacher's use to always say, "Here take this one. He's a gem."
