i know i'm kinda late, but i just saw this movie last night. my friend raved about this movie and i believe it received great reviews, so i had high hopes. i wasn't impressed. i thought it was okay, but nothing great.
i believe this type of movie has been done before, so the story was nothing new and it didn't seem like this movie brought anything new or interesting to the topic (kids from the wrong side of town who get mixed up in a life of crime with no way out).
i also didn't like the casting of the woman who played claire. her acting was decent, but i thought her look would have been better suited for a character from southie rather than yuppie town.
blake lively was "eh" to me. she dressed the part, but i don't think she embodied the part.
my silver linings were ben affleck, jon hamm and jeremy renner. they sure were nice to look at
what did you think about this movie?
