The Town ★★

Almost dreadfully mediocre Boston crime thriller and a gigantic step backward from his far superior Boston-set piece “Gone Baby Gone.” The Town hits every Boston film cliche on the list in such a tacky, overdone manner that you can’t help but cringe— the two sequences I liked the most were both entirely action oriented and were by far the most memorable and mildly impressive 20 minutes of the film’s overlong 2 hours plus runtime. 

Simply put, this movie is crap and go watch Gone Baby Gone or Mystic River instead.
