Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

Ben Af­fleck’s sec­ond di­rect­ing ef­fort after 2007’ s Gone Baby Gone takes us to Charlestown, near Bos­ton, which ac­cord­ing to the open­ing cred­its, is the town where bank robbers are raised. Af­fleck ( above) plays Doug McRay, a long­time thief who tries to bal­ance his feel­ings for a bank man­ager ( Re­becca Hall), who he once held hostage in an ear­lier heist, as well as the FBI agent ( Jon Hamm) look­ing to bring him and his crew down. While Af­fleck may re­sort to clichés to tell a story, this film is bet­ter than your av­er­age heist flick. Also stars Jeremy Ren­ner ( The Hurt Locker).
