★★★★ Ben Af­fleck plays a thief who be­gins a re­la­tion­ship with a woman held hostage dur­ing a heist. How­ever, if you as­sume that The Town is go­ing to sud­denly shrivel down into a reg­u­lar doomed loves­tory sce­nario, you will be sorely mis­taken. The wild card in the pack

here is Af­fleck’s ex­em­plary work as di­rec­tor and co-writer, which can be likened to

Martin Scors­ese’s award-win­ning ef­forts

on The De­parted.
