On "The Town"

From The Dispatch:
The performances are all uniformly excellent, despite some weaknesses in the script by Affleck, Peter Craig and Aaron Stockard (“Gone Baby Gone”), based on the novel “Prince of Thieves” by John Hogan. As a director, Affleck is still finding his voice. And while much of “The Town” is shaky ground for him, he mostly keeps a steady hand, delivering a well-honed heist thriller, even if it fails to fully engage the audience.

Fair enough Matthew. On balance I did find it rather "mundane" and unforgettable.
