Description

CONTAINS FLASHING IMAGES: An account of the Boston Marathon bombing, “Patriots Day” is the powerful story of a community's courage in the face of adversity. In the aftermath of an unspeakable act of terror, Police Sergeant Tommy Sanders (Mark Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again. Weaving together the stories of Special Agent Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman) Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (J.K. Simmons) and nurse Carol Saunders (Michelle Monaghan) this visceral and unflinching chronicle captures the suspense of one of the most sophisticated manhunts in law enforcement history and the strength of the people of Boston).

    Great film which was as long as it needed to be to summarise this tragic event The cowardly , worthless scum who committed this atrocity are losers in a game they could never win. Time this warped thinking was permanently removed from this world .
  • LAUGHABLE "TV MOVIE" & "TOUGH GUYS"

    Apart from the bad acting, the childish - and laughable - repetitive use of the F-word, the irritating shaky camerawork, the attempts of the actors to look really "manly" and "tough" and the nauseating "sensitive" scenes of the "tough guys" with their wives, this was a great movie (not). I fast-forwarded - I watched - I fast-forwarded - I watched - I sighed. If you want a great thriller without the unnecessary, formulaic, TV movie-esque luvvy-duvvy slop and clichés dolloped around, rent or buy the Oscar-winning Argo. Now THAT'S a movie!
  • Hardhitting, tense, emotional, very good

    The acting from all the team in this movie is excellent. It feels like you are watching events unfold, which is quite heartbreaking at times, but also amazing film making. It would have been better if terrorism never existed, we must pity those individuals who hurt, maim or kill others to feed their own ego, labelling it as 'god's will'. But in a world where such attrocities do exist, we need accurate storytelling and appreciation of love, hope and sheer determination for justice for anyone hurt. This film managed to show all of that, without making it about religion or race.
  • Great ...a fitting tribute to the horror and bravery

    Enjoyed this a lot and it really gave a sense of the events and professional way the police closed it out. Good film.

    Incredible and grounded depiction of the events around such tragic of circumstances with near as perfect direction, acting and cinematography that has you living every moment and understanding and feeling every emotion - this is simply one of the best and most moving films of our time and strenghtens the resolve of the true human spirit - must watch and be Boston Strong.

    This film is an excellantly produced documentary drama, it introduces charecters central to the event well and walks the viewer through a chronological timeframe of events. It is not a Hollywood action film but doesnt shy away from including sufficient gore and violence as to set the scene. Lovely touch to include actual survivors and charecters testimony at the end. Well worth a watch, an emotional rollercoaster.
  • VERY VERY VERY GOOD

    Even though the storyline is obvious, as it was all over the news at the time, the film is brilliant!
