The Town ★★★½

Some dodgy accents in a very good film. 


Inspired by true events, the story centres on Charlestown, a small town in Boston famous for being the breeding ground for bank robbers. Ben Affleck directs and stars as the leader of a group of bank robbers whose latest robbery see him fall for the bank employee Rebecca Hall, who gives a great performance. Jeremy Renner also gives a top performance as Affleck’s best mate 

The film is fairly predictable & some of the accents are very ropey, but the story is compelling and the escalating battle towards the end left me hooked.
