This movie is incredible...the plot is awesome...the acting is wonderful...the script is incredible, especially how everything unfolds...I still think about the lines in this movie...Ben Affleck truly has done it!!! If you miss this one, then you've really missed out...Think of \"The Godfather\" mixed with \"Scarface\" and \"The Usual Suspects\".

The Hollywood Reporter
Affleck gets the tribalism of Boston's traditionally Irish-American enclaves; it's a defining force in his character's lives. But for all their well-played grit, those characters resolutely remain types, and for all the well-choreographed action, the outcome doesn't matter nearly as much as it should. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
A solid, minor entry in the annals of Boston crime drama. Not as florid as "The Departed" or as sadly soulful as "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" - or even as sticky and gamy as "Gone Baby Gone," Mr. Affleck's previous film. Full Review
Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle
A first-class genre entry stacked with dandy performances and some crackerjack action to boot. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
It's a smart, bold genre exercise that's enormous fun to watch, harking back to gritty urban thrillers of the 1970s with an assured sense of tone and style. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Though the narrative is a conventional one, the well-acted, suspenseful story deals in fascinatingly murky morality and mines intriguing material from a historic and complex city. Full Review
