Ben Affleck sure is starting to make a good name for himself as a director and it’s well deserved too. This is his third motion picture and by far the best yet. Now that’s a big statement because his first two were great movie, especially Gone Baby gone, I put that up there as one of the best debuts from a director. He definitely knows what he is doing behind the camera. He made a movie that could easily have been tricky to catch the eye, but he made it look effortless. The script was superb, not once did it lose itself, the dialogue was sharp and crisp. I was totally sucked into the story the whole way through, talk about tenterhooks at the end.
My stomach was in knots from the suspense, that doesn’t happen too often nowadays from a movie.
It’s a shame 2012 was such a great year for movies because he would definitely been in with a shout for best director any other year. I think he will be back in the future with something even more impressive.
