The Town (2010)

27 February 2012
  • Conclusion: What does the Ultimate Collector's Edition of The Town offer that the standard version doesn't already feature? An iffy alternate ending, a slightly improved "Extended Cut with Alternate Ending" 25+ Mbps video presentation, ten-minutes of additional commentary with Ben Affleck, a 30-minute...

The Town

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: Ben Affleck has been on the Hollywood spotlight for nearly years now. I think the first time I remember seeing him was a bit part in 1992’s School Ties and he had a larger role in the following year’s Dazed and Confused .

  • Excerpt: I likes me some heist flicks. And not the pretty-boy, neato-technology crap that Hollywood seems intent on distributing. I’m talking about mean plots and desperate people, where the money isn’t what’s on the line - people’s humanity is. That sort of pathos-y stuff.

  • Conclusion: Despite a resume bursting with craptacular films, I keep cheering for Ben Affleck. The Town should change the minds of many viewers on where this man stands as a filmmaker and an actor.

The Town Review

DoBlu
18 December 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s the character of The Town that gives it life and sympathy. Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is part of a master ring of bank thieves, despicable as a person even if he never hurts anybody. The Town does not glorify him or elevate him to hero status. It does very much the opposite: it humanizes him.

High-Def Digest
15 December 2010
  • Conclusion: I'm still not thrilled with 'The Town,' but after going through this disc obsessively, I can appreciate the craft that went into the movie. The "extended cut" included here does do some things to alleviate my heartache, but the movie remains messy and largely unconvincing.

The Town (2010)

blu-ray.com
11 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Heat may be the superior cops-n-robbers genre pic and Gone Baby Gone may be the superior Affleck film, but The Town holds its own nonetheless. Its exceptional performances, mesmerizing heists, smartly penned dialogue, intriguing characters and gripping story make it one to watch this Oscar season,...

The Town

Cinema Blend
17 September 2010
  • Excerpt: With the sharp and well-acted crime drama Gone Baby Gone , Ben Affleck proved he was a prettyboy actor who also had what it took to step behind the camera and turn out a functional film.

The Town

AV Club
16 September 2010
  • Excerpt: As impressively controlled as Gone Baby Gone was, Ben Affleck’s directorial debut had a slightly airless quality, as if the film had been finished, then sealed behind a layer of plastic. His second feature, The Town , is a looser and more sprawling affair, more conventional, but also more assured.
