After Claire's release, Doug follows her and they begin a relationship. read more

Review: i'm going to start my review only by saying that it's in my top 3 best movies of all times. As you may know the film was co-written and directed by Ben Affleck, which was a big surprise for me. He did an excellent job. I loved the story, for once a movie that has to say something that isn't only fiction but is based in real facts. It had a lot of action but not the type that you say "ok that is never gonna happen", they don't overdo it. All the actors were amazing but mostly i was impressed by Blake Lively she was amazing, she had a small role but very important. Jeremy Renner was just a nomination for Oscar (i'm not kidding) he played his role perfectly. To sum up for me it was the perfect compination of good actors, good production and a great story. I not only recommed it, but you should see it by all means, you wont be dissappointed belive me...


  1. I watched this around Christmas and loved it!
    I read the book too because a friend told me it was more tragic.
    The ending is different than the book, but it felt better to my heart!

  2. I wanna watch this one1 Thanks for the review!
    Now i need to find time!

  3. This Movie was really good...It reminded me of "Point Break" (For those who haven't watched it,please DO). It was really interesting, the characters were great and I still laugh every time I remember the scene (small spoiler?maybe) with the policeman in the car looking away...
    8/10 from me...

  4. @Choqm@n : that scene was epic! it was so funn but in the same time so deep, it ilustrated the whole way of the "system" toda!

    i haven't seen "Point Break" but now you got my interest! i'm watching it as soon as i find the time =)
