The Town, Welcome to the Bank Robbery Capital of AmericaCategory: Entertainment
After last month’s Takers, here’s another movie about bank robbers; The Town.
Yes, there are actually many ways on how to rob banks. Some are in fact exceptional that they make it to Hollywood.
The Town’s bank robbers masquerade as nun with what looks like masks from the Scream movie. There’s even one that looks like The Predator.
The Town is written and directed by Ben Affleck. This is his second directorial job after the critically acclaimed Gone Baby Gone.
The movie stars Ben Affleck as Doug MacRay, Jon Hamm as Special Agent Adam Frawleya nd Rebecca Hall as Claire.
Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) was born and raised in Charlestown, a blue-collar neighborhood in Boston, where crime is a part of life. Charlestown is the world’s capital for carjacking, kidnappings, and armed robberies. The tricks of the criminal trade are passed down from father to son. Doug is the brains and ruthless leader of a gang of bank robbers who have been able to get out clean after each bank robbery. But Doug knows that his luck will not last forever, and he is looking for one last big heist that will give him the chance to leave the town in his rear-view mirror. But no one will let him, especially, his right-hand man Jeremy (James Coughlin); because he believes that it would be a personal betrayal to him, and he is not going to allow that. In a recent bank job, Doug forced the bank manager Claire (Rebecca Hall) to open the safe, and then took her hostage as leverage for the getaway, and eventually setting her free unharmed. Doug knows that he should leave Claire alone, but she only lives four blocks from him, and he can handle it, but he begins to fall for her. Their romantic involvement is about to take them down a perilous path.
The Town is produced by Graham King for a budget of $37 million.
