Affleck robs “The Town”

The new Ben Affleck stared and directed movie “The Town” coming out September 17th is able to be simplified down to one line, however from the trailer it does not seem like a simple movie.

Affleck stars as a career thief who falls in love with the manager of a bank he robbed.

From what I can tell from the trailer, the movie certainly looks very promising.  It looks like it has the potential to be a good thriller and a good heist movie.  From what I can tell from the trailer Affleck’s character will have some nice conflict from trying to break away from a destructive/criminal lifestyle and how hard that is.  I also love Jon Hamm who plays the main FBI agent that we see in the trailer.  Hamm does amazing work in the TV show Mad Men, so glad to see him in what could be a great movie.

From what I have seen in the trailer, a movie that I will keep an eye on and will likely go see in September when it comes out.

Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. With no real attachments, Doug never has to fear losing anyone close to him. But that all changed on the gang’s latest job, when they briefly took a hostage–bank manager, Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). Though they let her go unharmed, Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name… and where she lives. But she lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug…not realizing that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorized her. The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path.
