THE TOWN

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

At its best, this crime drama with a ro­man­tic sub­plot brings to mind the taut, tense heist scenes from clas­sic film noirs. It misses the mark a bit, though, be­cause of the script, which al­lows smart peo­ple to do stupid things a lit­tle too of­ten and be­cause the ro­mance an­gle isn’t given enough at­ten­tion. Ben Af­fleck di­rects (he does a nice job) and stars as the one mem­ber of a rob­bery crew who has a con­science. Jeremy Ren­ner is ex­cel­lent as the trig­ger-happy mem­ber of the gang. Rated R. 125 min­utes. Re­gal North, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott)
