Since The Town is on tonight, I thought I’d repost this movie review from Christmas. Happy Holidays!
In this gripping crime thriller written and directed by Oscar winner Ben Affleck, Santa Claus plays an FBI agent hell bent on capturing a band of bank robbers who go on a crime spree just in time for Christmas.
Set in Affleck’s native Boston, the film evokes memories of other Boston crime flicks like “Gone, Baby, Gone”, “Mystic River” and “The Departed”.
Santa Claus gives a dynamic performance, and very well might find himself on the Nice List when Oscar nominations are announced next month. He teams up with John Hamm’s dogged FBI agent on a mission. Together, the two men vow to take down the team before Christmas Eve so that Christmas does not have to be canceled (the plot gets a little confusing when explaining why Christmas might get canceled, but the guys rob banks disguised as nuns, so who cares about that minor plot point???).
