The Town (2010)
Really good. I love well-executed genre pictures, and this was one of them, the heist scenes (all three of them) distinct and exciting in their own way (the best was the final one at Fenway Park). All the actors plays their characters well, in particular I enjoyed Jeremy Renner as a young psychopath, Rebecca Hall as a misguided love interest, and Jon Hamm as a quick-thinking FBI agent. I had problems with the end, in particular the overly-sentimental resolution of the love story, but it was a small flaw in an otherwise pretty riveting flick.
