I love this movie. A few too many and too long car chases for me, but the idea of a "sensitive, new-age" bank robber chasing the idea of a different life was great. I Loved Ben Affleck in it, and since he grew up in Boston, his accent is as good as it gets.
Not the most thrilling suspenseful bank rob movie, but still good.
Very slow, boring story, worst accent ever Ben sorry! I do not recommend watching
Great movie, one of the best I have gotten from Quickflix in a while. Really enjoyed the movie. Was a bit slow at times. But otherwise kept pace well. Definitely recommend the movie.
This is worth a watch Ben Affleck stars as Bank robber and develops something for the Bank Manager on one of his jobs while the FBI try & take him & his crew down. Also stars Blake Lively as his ex who is Leonardo Di Caprio's ex in real life.
The movie dragged on a bit. Some things just made little to no sense, and seemed to take place only to try to keep the on screen drama happening. Overall it was ok but not spectacular.
Best movie i have seen in a long time, highly recommend
Tense dramatic well acted
Didn't know what to expect but I enjoyed this movie. Action and angst. It was kind of along the same theme as 'The Departed'. Provided a lot of insight into just what it might be like growing up in a particular environment and wanting to 'get out'.
A really good drama - probably one of Ben Afleck's better recent performances!
Possibly I should have watched the "extended cut" instead of the "theatrical cut" but this Boston-based bank-robbing action flick seemed only solid with no frills. The script offers opportunities for richer characterization but Ben Affleck's acting isn't really up to the challenge (Rebecca Hall is better). OK, Jeremy Renner is scary and I "believed" him when on screen. But in the end this was all a bit too "by the numbers" for me (criminal wants to go straight yadda yadda).
who can rob banks twice a week..
lol very funny
trying to hook up a love story in middle..
very boring - very long
This is a brilliant movie and had masterpiece potential (but fell short of the honour). Well written and fantastic directing, my one complaint was Ben Affleck in the lead - just wonders whether he should have cast little bro. Casey. Some of the lessor known ensemble cast of actors were great in their roles. It always had the feel that Ben Afflect was constantly over-thinking about his brilliance and self-driecting in his mind which was a bit of a spoiler. Ben Affleck = the Woody Allen of Boston town. Big bang ending was perhaps a little out of place.
Not really a feel good movie but well worth watching.
I did not know what to expect from this movie only seeing one preview but I was very pleasantly surprised at the story line and ability to capture my attention. My wife who does not enjoy heist movies even enjoyed this one. It has a little bit of everything in it from action, romance, comedy, drama, and most importantly tragedy. They could have squeezed some sci-fi in there if they were really trying.
How does our surroundings and family shape us? Do people change and what is the appropriate punishment for past misdeeds? A thoughtful character piece wrapped in heist film with three expertly staged and exciting action sequences.
Great action movie, good plot, great look on Blue Ray, funny moments to break it up, won't disappoint if you are looking for something thats a bit of action, a bit of fun. Bit like a "Lethal Weapon" or "Die Hard" style
