Ben Affleck does it again what a great protagonist must watch!
It's intriguing enough to suck you in, but confusing, fragmentary, frustrating.
For all its sporadic philosophizing and belated stabs at romance, Live by Night is cold and inert at its core. That’s really the long and short of it.
Live By Night is solid enough entertainment, but it lacks the nasty edge or narrative muscularity to make it memorable.
