SCOTT: If you had told me a few years ago that I’d one day be eagerly anticipating “a film by Ben Affleck,” I’d have assumed you were very drunk, and yet here we are. Affleck’s debut effort, Gone Baby Gone, wasn’t perfect, but it did boast the most authentically seedy Boston atmosphere since The Friends of Eddie Coyle, which bodes well for The Town. The novel on which it’s based, Chuck Hogan‘s Prince of Thieves, doesn’t exactly reinvent the “one last job” genre, but it should provide a sturdy framework for a solid crime thriller. It will be fun to see Jon Hamm in a modern context, and the central heist at Fenway Park will be the only real action worth watching at America’s most beloved ballpark, since the Red Sox are tanking. The Town is definitely my front-runner this week.
