Kallesaid on Friday, January 21, 2011 6:55:47 PMSuperb film. One of the three best of 2010.
But what's with the giant crucifix around your neck, Richard? You look like a monk on a Chicago vacation.

write2apsaid on Saturday, December 25, 2010 12:32:13 AMI saw this film based on your review. It was excellent. Ben Affleck was great in this film. The entire cast was excellent. Who knew Blake Lively could actually act? Thanks for the reviews.
Anatoliy Budnitskiysaid on Thursday, December 23, 2010 1:41:55 PMwith an incredible year of extraordinary movies, this is definitely in my top 5 of the year. truly brilliant, thrilling masterpiece. your review is always spot on.
Darin Grantsaid on Friday, November 05, 2010 11:27:24 AMTerrific review as always, Richard! I definitely agree that this is one of the best movies of the year! (IMO, it actually is even better than Gone Baby Gone.) However, even though I do agree as well that The Town should be nominated for Best Picture, I unfortunately don't think it will be because of movies such as Rabbit Hole, Winter's Bone, and Another Year. Very sad, as I think this movie was better than all of those, but whatever...that's what the AA's are made of. *Sigh.*
Brandonsaid on Saturday, October 16, 2010 4:45:23 PMI fully agree Richard, The Town was an amazing movie, if it were not for Inception and Toy Story 3 being my big favorites of the year this one would be at the top.
Andrewsaid on Sunday, September 26, 2010 11:02:17 PMThanks for the advice, Richard! I have been debating whether or not to see the film, but you have me sold! First chance I have, I'm seeing The Town!
