Ben Affleck is an ambitious and dedicated filmmaker and it looks he gives it all he has when he directs a movie. However with Live By Night, he seems to have misfired bigtime with all his might. While Live by Night is wonderfully shot and beautifully presented, it never quite builds up the kind of connect that is required in such kind of scripts. The aftermaths of a war and the character being deeply affected by it has been underplayed to such an extent that it bombs when the time comes. Ben Affleck is good as a performer, but you expect him to put a little more effort when it comes to helming a project as delicate as this. Live By Night is most likely to disappoint you if you go in with a lot of expectations.
