"ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF THE YEAR"
-Leonard Maltin, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT
As he plans a job that could result in his gang's biggest score ever, a longtime thief plans a way out of the life and the the town while dodging the FBI agent looking to bring him and his bank-robbing crew down. In addition to heading an electrifying cast, Ben Affleck als directed and co-wrote this suspenseful and critically acclaimed crime thriller that unfolds - and often explodes - across grity Boston locations. Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively, Titus Welliver, Pet Postlethwaite and Chris Cooper also star.
Given that this movie features Ben Affleck in both the lead role and as the movie's director, I fully expected not to like it. But the tight performances and engaging plot won me over.
Rated R (MPAA)
