Review from the comment
Oh boy. The Town could have been so wonderful. The entire movie is well paced, the characters are strongly developed, and the arc of the story is on a sharp curve. Group that with excellent perfomances on all cylinders and you have a recipe for something classic. But the film is almost ruined by ridiculous implausibilities in its climax. I don't mind suspending belief when I'm watching movies. I do that for stuff like Machete, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and Hot Tub Time Machine. But movies like Dog Day Afternoon, Heat, and even Training Day (movies The Town would love to be in a class with) are good because they are believeable. Directors that try to force some bs down an audiences throat that they expect us to accept as believable shouldn't be surprised when we develop indigestion. Its a shame, because The Town could have went down as top tier in its genre.
