Affleck brings the heat

Not a particularly memorable flick, but it still keeps you well engrossed for its duration, helped by some loud Heat-inspired street gun battles.

Ben Affleck doesn't bring the emotional depth to this movie that he did to the superb Gone Baby Gone, and it's made poorer for his inability to have you believe that he's a young down and dirty crim looking for redemption. He should have hired his younger brother again as the role would have suited him better.
