Doug MacRay is leader of a Boston bank robber gang but not cut from the same cloth as his fellow thieves. When Doug falls into a passionate romance with the bank manager briefly taken hostage in their last heist, he wants out of this life and out of the town. As the Feds close in and the crew questions his loyalty, he has one of two choices: betray his friends or lose the woman he loves.

Really enjoyed this directing, acting, writing of Ben Affleck. Jon Hamm: very good as usual. Very good production about a string of bank robberies inBoston. Worth the watch.

Star filled adventure/drama. Nothing new. Ben Affleck and Jon Hamm are sure handsome. Not sure Jon Hamm was necessary. Ben Affleck as Director and Actor is a little much. Not sure why people can’t say their “R’s” in Boston. I’m on a Blake Lively kick after seeing “The Shallows.” Jeremy Renner is an excellent actor.

. 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.

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."
