Box Office - 09/10/2010
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "This taut story about a guy trying to get out of the criminal life into which he was born is loaded with action, but it's also so smartly written that a complex character study rests at its heart."
Hollywood Reporter - 09/08/2010
"Affleck excels at capturing the insularity of the locale..."
Total Film - 10/01/2010

Entertainment Weekly - 09/09/2010

Chicago Sun-Times - 09/15/2010

USA Today - 09/17/2010

Los Angeles Times - 09/17/2010

A.V. Club - 09/16/2010
"[Affleck's] second feature, THE TOWN, is a looser and more sprawling affair, more conventional, but also more assured."

"Ben Affleck works both sides of the camera to impressive effect in THE TOWN, a dramatic thriller that fulfills its considerable ambitions."
Movieline - 09/17/2010
"The movie is as slick and tightly constructed as Affleck's debut, GONE BABY GONE....Affleck shoots each heist like the performance it is..."
Washington Post - 09/17/2010

Rolling Stone - 09/15/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] gripping human drama disguised as a blazing heist film that comes on like gangbusters."
Uncut - 11/01/2010
