Films like this have been made once too often.

As the screen writer, director, producer and star of Live by Night, Ben Affleck's take on Dennis Lehane's gangster novel may have been exciting to transform into a motion picture, yet it was anything but that for this critic to watch.

The film follows the life of Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck) who joins a group of gangsters from Boston during the Prohibition era. The storyline was extremely unoriginal and failed to hold my attention for the most part of the film, being slow and uninspiring at times. On a positive note, Affleck's performance was strong and the actresses who played his love interests were perfectly cast.

Emma Gould (Sienna Miller) was a sensation, playing the mistress of an Irish mob boss Albert White (Robert Glenister) who ultimately introduced Joe into the underworld by involving him with Maso Pescatore (Remo Girone), the leader of the Italian mob.

Later he falls in love with Graciela (Zoe Saldana) and together they generate great chemistry on screen which leads to an unexpected and heart breaking twist in the finale.

The action sequences were prominent throughout with brilliant visual techniques and the characters were dressed in grand 20's style which was appealing to the eye.

The cinematography was praiseworthy with the entirety of the movie being set in an authentic 1920's setting.

Although I didn’t enjoy the film, I’m sure there will be many who will
