Just rewatched this thanks to your review. I found it just as enjoyable as the first time. I will say that I always compare it to Gone, Baby, Gone which it doesn't live up to.I will watch "Patriots Day" next, hoping for better than...:
...I do not know why the surfeit of Bahston movies on Netflix USA all of a sudden, but this one, while still OK (and with a really great cast actually, top to bottom) somehow did not seem nearly as interesting the second time around, a few years later.
No new intriguing details or second "folds" in the story jumped out, iow. Every character was very boxed in to their specific role, far too much so. Renner (by far the cast MVP), Postelwhaite, and Hall were the best of the cast. The co-writer, star and director was typically wooden in all three aspects. The dialogue and cinematography never advanced beyond the basic and predictable, and the performance was a physical and emotive repeat of several others of his. Still quite watchable as pure entertainment, but nothing special really, and so on second viewing moving down in the ratings in this genre.
Funny, I was talking to my neighbors (late 30's couple, from that area of Boston until very recently) not even 60 minutes ago about "The Town". They agreed a lot with what I had written above actually...OK but not great film, Renner the best actor, Affleck pretty wooden and disappointing...etc.Just rewatched this thanks to your review. I found it just as enjoyable as the first time. I will say that I always compare it to Gone, Baby, Gone which it doesn't live up to.
Will keep an eye out for Patriot's Day
