I went to see “The Town” in the movies on weekend. Too bad my experience was spoiled by the total failure of surround sound in the cinema and by a power cut due to the thunderstorm, two minutes before the end of the movie. But I still liked the movie so much that I downloaded a copy and watched it in the comfort of my own home (really, are there any other options left?).
Before I say anything else, I have to do a disclosure. I am biased here. Crime is one of my favorite movie genres in general, and bank robberies, con artists, and heist schemes are among my top interests in movies.
With that, I am now free to say how awesome this movie was. First of all, it’s a great story with great characters. Not particularly original, but still great. It got a slightly screwed up ending, but by now we should be probably get used to them anyway. Still. There is plenty to see – action, acting, drama, tough guys, car chases, gun fights, hot girls, Boston accent, and more.
Overall, I’ll give it a 5 out of 5. But you still remember, that I’m biased, right?
