The Town Blu-ray/DVD Ultimate Collector's Edition

Synopsis: Ben Affleck follows his acclaimed Gone Baby Gone directorial debut by directing, co-writing and starring in a taut thriller about robbers and cops, friendship and betrayal, love and hope and escaping a past that has no future. He plays Doug MacRay, leader of a Boston bank robber gang but not cut from the same cloth as his fellow thieves. When Doug falls into a passionate romance with the bank manager (Rebecca Hall) briefly taken hostage in their last heist, he wants out of this life and out of the town. As the Feds close in and the crew questions his loyalty, he has one of two choices: betray his friends or lose the woman he loves. Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Blake Lively, Titus Welliver, Pete Postlethwaite and Chris Cooper also star.

Review: The Town was an absolutely fantastic film done by and starring Ben Affleck.  Affleck is kinda known for his cruddy roles since his dynamic debut Good Will Hunting (save for Dogma), but he more than renews himself in this great tale about a group of working class bankrobbers and the complications that arise when one of them falls in love with one of their hostages!  This one is the ultimate edition of one of the best crime dramas to come out in years!

This new blu-ray boxed set includes the following: Theatrical Version Plus Extended Cut; "Ben's Boston" - actor/director/writer Ben Affleck takes you through the moviemaking process in his hometown, Segments Include: "The Cathedral of Boston", "Nuns with Guns: Filming in the North End", "Pulling off the Perfect Heist", "The Town", Commentary on Both Versions by Ben Affleck.  This set also includes film prop reproductions, a 48-page photo book and a poster-sized map of Charlestown.
