Editor's Note
Boston bank robber Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) falls for a woman his gang had previously taken hostage after feigning a chance meeting with her to ensure that she can't identify them in Affleck's adaptation of author Chuck Hogan's novel PRINCE OF THIEVES. The son of a tough Charlestown, MA thief, Doug passed on his chance to walk the straight and narrow in favor of becoming a career bank robber. Not only is Doug's crew one of the most ruthless in Boston, but they're also one of the best; they never leave a trace of evidence, and always make a clean break. Over the years, Doug's fearless partners in crime have become something of a surrogate family to him; Jem (Jeremy Renner), the most dangerous of the bunch, is the closest thing Doug has ever had to a brother. But a divide begins to open between the two career criminals when Jem takes bank manager Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall) hostage during a particularly tense heist, and the group subsequently discovers that she hails from their own tight-knit suburb. When Jem proposes that the gang make an effort to find out just how much Claire recalls about the crime, Doug fears that his volatile partner may do more harm than good and volunteers himself for the job. Later, Doug turns on the charm while pretending to bump into Claire by chance, and becomes convinced that she doesn't suspect him of being the same man who just robbed her bank. As the feds turn up the heat on the gang, Doug finds himself falling for Claire, and searching desperately for a means of cutting his ties to his criminal past. But with each passing day, Jem grows increasingly suspicious of Doug's true motivations. Now caught between two worlds with no chance of turning back, Doug realizes that his only hope for finding a happy future is to betray the only family he's ever known.

Professional Reviews

Box Office
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "This taut story about a guy trying to get out of the criminal life into which he was born is loaded with action, but it's also so smartly written that a complex character study rests at its heart." 09/10/2010

Hollywood Reporter
"Affleck excels at capturing the insularity of the locale..." 09/08/2010

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "THE TOWN is full of great exchanges, great scenes, all of them infused with authenticity." 10/01/2010

Entertainment Weekly
"[A] rich, dark, pulpy mess of entanglements that fulfills all the requirements of the genre, and it is told with an ease and gusto that make the pulp tasty." -- Grade: A- 09/09/2010

Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "Affleck has the stuff of a real director....It's an effective thriller, he works closely with actors, he has a feel for pacing." 09/15/2010

USA Today
"Affleck has a keen eye for cinematic stories and wisely chooses one set in a city he knows intimately. He has an evident knack for orchestrating involving action scenes." 09/17/2010

Los Angeles Times
"[A] fast-paced, character-driven heist movie that combines robberies with romance and solidifies Affleck's reputation as an actor with a genuine gift for directing." 09/17/2010

A.V. Club
"[Affleck's] second feature, THE TOWN, is a looser and more sprawling affair, more conventional, but also more assured." 09/16/2010

Wall Street Journal
"Ben Affleck works both sides of the camera to impressive effect in THE TOWN, a dramatic thriller that fulfills its considerable ambitions." 09/17/2010

Movieline
"The movie is as slick and tightly constructed as Affleck's debut, GONE BABY GONE....Affleck shoots each heist like the performance it is..." 09/17/2010

Washington Post
3 stars out of 4 -- "It's a smart, bold genre exercise that's enormous fun to watch, harking back to gritty urban thrillers of the 1970s with an assured sense of tone and style." 09/17/2010

Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] gripping human drama disguised as a blazing heist film that comes on like gangbusters." 09/15/2010

Uncut
3 stars out of 5 -- "There is a juddering, brilliantly choreographed FRENCH CONNECTION-style car chase through crowded streets and narrow alleyways..." 11/01/2010

Sight and Sound
"There's a strong sense of milieu....The set-piece heists and car chases are executed with impressive skill and pacing..." 11/01/2010

Washington Post 8 of 10
...It's a smart, bold genre exercise that's enormous fun to watch, harking back to gritty urban thrillers of the 1970s with an assured sense of tone and style...With its heists, fights, car chases and kick-in-the-pants climax set at Fenway Park, "The Town" lets action, staging and canny editing tell the story. "The Town" has a lot going for it: terrific cast, good writing, some nifty psychological reversals. But the best news is that Affleck makes it all move. - Ann Hornaday

Premiere 9 of 10
...The Town is well crafted and well acted, and Affleck exhibits an unerring skill not only with actors but with action ... there are several riveting, high-adrenaline set pieces, beginning with MacRay's well-drilled crew taking down Hall's bank and ending with an audacious robbery and shoot out at Fenway Park, that Michael Mann would be proud to call his own. It's the kind of smart, stylish, entertaining and grown-up movie that the studios are making less and less of these days and which, on the strength of his first two films, Affleck is clearly very good at. - Mark Salisbury

Time 8 of 10
...it's rare to see an ensemble movie like this, so loaded with talented actors, in which virtually all of them get an opportunity to make an impression. Affleck is the boss and the star, but he knows how to share...The Town is a thriller that manages to be pleasingly familiar, yet fresh. It's perverse to say this about something so bloody, but it goes down like cinematic comfort food. - Mary Pols
