The Town: Ultimate Collector's Edition (Blu-ray + DVD Pack)
SynopsisThere are over 300 bank robberies in Boston every year. And a one-square-mile neighbourhood in Boston, called Charlestown, has produced more bank and armoured car robbers than anywhere in the U.S.
One of them is Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck), but he is not cut from the same cloth as his fellow thieves. Unlike them, Doug had a chance at success, a chance to escape following in his father's criminal footsteps. Instead, he became the leader of a crew of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves on taking what they want and getting out clean. The only family Doug has are his partners in crime, especially Jem (Jeremy Renner), who, despite his dangerous, hair-trigger temper, is the closest thing Doug ever had to a brother.
Everything changed on the gang's last job when Jem briefly took a hostage: bank manager Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). When they discover she lives in Charlestown, Jem gets nervous and wants to check out what she might have seen. Knowing what Jem is capable of, Doug takes charge. He seeks out Claire, who has no idea that their encounter is not by chance or that this charming stranger is one of the men who terrorized her only days before.
As his relationship with Claire deepens into a passionate romance, Doug wants out of this life and the town. But with the Feds, led by Agent Frawley (Jon Hamm), closing in and Jem questioning his loyalty, Doug realizes that getting out will not be easy and, worse, may put Claire in the line of fire. Any choices he once had have boiled down to one: betray his friends or lose the woman he loves.

Not that the special features are much more legion than they were before but we do get a nice documentary on the making of the movie, albeit too short (30 minutes), the previously available focus points a trailer and an extended cut indicator.
The paper features appear to be the real interest to get this set, with a poster, photo book, mug shots, dossiers, etc. Not much more except to make the film feel a bit more real.
I would have loved Warner to include much much more, like loads of deleted scenes, interviews, in-depth interviews, etc. Seems like Blu-ray is hitting an all-time low and must we always wait for an "ultimate" edition to get what we could have gotten the first time around?
Warner, this is getting frustrating, although I waited years before getting this, and it was at steal price.
