    Did anyone else go see this Ben Affleck flick?

    A bunch of bad @ss white dudes running things in this movie. I was shocked that after so many years of affirmative action that a movie would have such little "diversity" lol. No minority stars, white women loving on white dudes, strong white male characters (both police and bank robbers).

    Over all it was extremely entertaining, suspenseful, action packed at the right moments, and a very creative and interesting love story...albeit far fetched. If you are sick of the usual white-male hating crap that comes out of Hollywood, I'd suggest you go see this movie!

    Thanks. I meant to go today, but ran out of time. I'll check it out next Sunday. Affleck's "Gone Baby Gone" from a couple of years ago was great (albeit, disturbing in some parts) too. His brother Casey plays the lead role as a private detective trying to find a kidnapped White baby girl in some rough areas of Boston. Great scene where Casey has to confront some Jamaican thug on his own turf. Another positive depiction of an intelligent, street-smart, tough-as-nails White man that refuses to take any crap from anyone.

    Yes, this movie looks quite good...does it remind anyone of the departed?
