‘Live By Night’ Film Review

Grade: C-

Live by Night Movie Poster

As Batman in ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and Christian Wolff in ‘The Accountant’, Ben Affleck has had a pretty good 2016; although, he hasn’t directed a film since ‘Argo’, which was a very funny and thrilling piece of work that earned 3 Oscars, including Best Picture (but no director nod for Affleck). Here, he has to balance both being behind and in front of the camera; the result is a rushed, squeezed-in gangster flick about adultery, the prohibition-era, and a bit of soul-searching. Formas de pago casinos online 777 slots slot machine hello action scenes in this movie are well-handled as well as its costume design and beautiful cinematography. But that’s all ‘Live By Night’ has going for it.

The acting can be decent, but Affleck gives a very disappointing performance trying to figure out which accent to use.

‘Live By Night’ does have potential to be a great movie. However, in order for a gangster movie to be great, it doesn’t need to just focus on action and thrills, but it needs tension during the dramatic dialogue. If you need films that add tension to their dialogue, might I suggest ‘Inglourious Basterds’ or ‘Black Mass’ instead of this? Better luck next time, Affleck!

  1. Ben Affleck has been very hit and miss his whole career so this doesn’t much surprise me. While I’d kind of noted this existed I didn’t have any plans to watch it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.

      I went to see it with a coworker and friends last night, but expected greatness, since he directed it, and has a good track record, from what I’ve heard. It is truly worth a watch for its entertainment value though.
