I like Affleck as an actor I'm just not 100% on board with his directing. There is some beautiful visual work in parts tho. Well worn territory but it had a bit of a spin to it. Much better than that dreck Lawless from a couple years back.

Ended up kind of enjoying this after the eyerollin inducing trailer. There's some beautiful visual moments in here that makes it clear Affleck knows what he's doing, but he needs to not tread such well worn areas.

Not really about anything. Easy to watch, but why even make this movie?

Interesting story and good action but ultimately not very engaging.

Well made but not much that separates it from other movies in the genre

When I thought about it a little I realized it's probably the worst movie of Affleck's directing career, but I still liked it a fair bit! It was a little overstuffed, felt a little long since it dragged occasionally, the last 10-15 minutes were rushed and over-the-top, like he just needed to put more in it, but as a whole it explores familiar territory with some flair and intelligence.

Live By Night is a good movie that struggles to live up to its potential thanks to a cut-down version of what we can only suspect was, at one point, at least 30 minutes longer. That doesn't make it bad, but instead of feeling like a fully realized portrait of this man's life, it feels instead like a greatest hits compilation. Every scene is good but the film as a whole doesn't add up to what it should. Still, I'm calling it another win in the directorial career of Ben Affleck. [Full Review]

Ben Affleck's tribute to old-school Warner brothers gangster pictures may lack the white heat of the Cagney-Bogart era, but Live By Night still gets in its stylish licks.
