WATCH: The First Trailer For Matt Damon's New Boston-Based Heist Movie Is AWESOME

Follows two robbers who must go on the run with the help of one of their therapists after a theft doesn't go as planned.

This is exactly the type of movie we need more of today. Just fun, no frills heist movies with lots of action and easy one liners. It feels like since the incredibly underrated 'Logan Lucky', we've been in a bit of a dry spell. Well, no more baby! This combines one of the better action directors working today in Doug Liman, two actors with a friendship going back 30 years in Damon + Casey Affleck, An all star supporting cast and a cool concept. What's not to love? 

I don't want to give Boston too many flowers since they're about to win another chip, Brady is on top of the world etc but this is a huge win for Boston. Between this, 'The Town', 'The Departed', 'Gone Baby Gone', 'Mystic River' and more, Boston might just be the best crime drama city on earth. 

In case you're not familiar with Doug Liman, he directed 'The Bourne Identity', 'Edge of Tomorrow', 'American Made', 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' and is also slated to direct a movie filmed in space with Tom Cruise. Casey Affleck is a co-writer on the movie with Chuck MacLean, who created 'City on a Hill',  Boston-based crime series. 

This movie has a limited release Aug 2nd and a AppleTV+ release Aug 9th.
