Description: There are over 300 bank robberies in Boston every year. And most of the professionals live in a one-square-mile neighborhood called Charlestown. One of them is Doug MacRay, but he is not cut from the same cloth as his fellow thieves. Unlike them, Doug had a chance at success, a chance to escape following in his father's criminal footsteps. Instead, he became the leader of a crew of ruthless bank robbers, who pride themselves on taking what they want and getting out clean. The only family Doug has are his partners in crime, especially Jem, who, despite his dangerous, hair-trigger temper, is the closest thing Doug ever had to a brother. However, everything changed on the gang's last job when Jem briefly took a hostage: bank manager Claire Keesey. When they discover Claire lives in Charlestown, Jem gets nervous and wants to check out what she might have seen. Knowing what Jem is capable of, Doug takes charge. He seeks out Claire, who has no idea that their encounter is not by chance or that this charming stranger is one of the men who terrorized her only days before. As his relationship with Claire deepens into a passionate romance, Doug wants out of this life and the town. But with the Feds closing in and Jem questioning his loyalty, Doug realizes that getting out will not be easy and, worse, may put Claire in the line of fire. Any choices he once had have boiled down to one: betray his friends or lose the woman he loves. "The Town" is a dramatic thriller about robbers and cops, friendship and betrayal, love and hope, and escaping a past that has no future.

    Oftentimes, it's not you who chose the path of life. We are born thieves? Vicious criminals? Guardians of the law? The answer is, No! Similarly you can't choose the moment of falling. When this happens, all things have a different light. Your wake up, your dreams are not the same. Take it or leave it.

    Gone Baby Gone really showed another side of an otherwise okay actor (his potential as director). Hopefully Ben Affleck's The Town will be as good or even better.

    Affleck looks like hell, as usual, but the integration of the girl from Gossip Girl, or whatever that teen show is, makes it interesting. Throw in the badass Renner from Hurt Locker, and I'll see it.
