The Town

Checked this one out tonight. I liked it a lot, but I feel like it may be a bit overrated. I feel like they could have done more with the triangle between Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner, and Rebecca Hall. Affleck was just a little too quick to give up his life of robbery and run off with Hall. A lot of comparisons have been made between this and The Departed. Honestly I gotta give it to The Departed, I liked the plot more and thought the actors did a better job, (every time I saw Affleck on screen he kept reminding me of Adam Sandler.) I still consider The Town a great movie, just not anything mind blowing.
