For a guy who is clearly very good at making quality films, Ben Affleck has starred in a surprising amount of bad films. He wrote “Good Will Hunting”, he directed “Gone Baby Gone”, and now he’s done the best thing for his acting career – he directed the movie he stars in. “The Town” is a pretty good film. Jeremy Renner is particularly good as Affleck’s unhinged best friend. It’s an interesting and engaging story told without labouring too much on the melodramatic aspects, and as a heist film it features some pretty cool action and car chase scenes. Affleck should direct himself more often.
