Watched The TownÂ last night, directed by and starring Ben Affleck, Rebecca Hall, John Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively…and other amazing actors. Great dialogue, outstanding performances, solid storyline. This movie was SUPERB!
The character-driven sequences were strong; these were very natural roles for each of them (I guess that’s a sign of a good actor). Especially Ben Affleck! It’s usually difficult for me to identify or connect with any characters in action/heist-typed films; especially male-roles; but my heart definitely went out to his character and his internal struggle. He had this rough exterior, but inside…he had very raw, real emotions. He’d move mountains for this girl…he’d do anything for her. His dialogue had a lot of heart, and he spoke with a manly, quiet confidence. It was so appealing! He instantly draws you in.
Anyway, if you haven’t seen this movie…RENT IT. It’s a pleasant surprise!
