Default Review: The Town on Blu-ray/DVD



by Z. Saeed

Ben Affleck is at his best when he is wholly familiar with the subject of his films. That subject is generally his hometown of Boston, but as a growing filmmaker, he knows exactly how to portray neighborhoods of his home in a way that doesn't glorify or glamorize a place that is tough and oftentimes frightening to live in. Such is The Town, which focuses on a relationship between a criminal, Doug MacRay (Affleck), and a woman whose bank he robbed (Rebecca Hall) in Charlestown, labeled the most robbed city in the U.S. The couple come together because of MacRay's lies and manipulation, and Hall's easy ability to be swept off her feet, especially after having suffered a traumatic emotional ordeal as having been robbed at gunpoint by MacRay and his friends (all in disgiuse).

Some of the strongest performances come from Jeremy Renner, whose unnerving and brutal thug comes across as almost too frightening to be around, as though he's just a step away from being completely unhinged and wreaking havoc, including theft and murder. Blake Lively of Gossip Girl fame shows that she is more than just a pretty face, and plays the role of the single mother and drug mule with sad resignation. The audience does feel sympathetic for the characters, even Renner's madman, and makes them relatable in your average run-of-the-mill heist and whodunit movie.

The Town is available on DVD and Blu-ray now on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
