The Town- so so movie..too many slow parts interfere with the action
I have to say The Town was only just ok to me. It was like a mix of The departed and Heat..but too much of the slow parts of each showed up! (thanks to my buddy Blake for that analogy!) There was great action …BUT there was way too much down time between the action that to me made me sleepy and bored. then all of a sudden after 30 mins of quiet..you’d get 30 mins of solid gunfire. So thats why im so middle ground here. It could have been about 20 mins shorter to bring the action closer together.
I do have to say i liked Ben Affleck in this…he also got pumped for this movie! He’s definitely on a come back path…just wish this was more of a solid action film vs trying to over play the dramatic side.
The ending was one of my favorite parts..very cool action and nice ending
Its worth seeing once or renting but keep expectations low and you may enjoy it more
