Patriots Day REVIEWS

  • Writer/Director Peter Berg Takes Police Work to the next Level

    January 13th, 2017

    PPs (police procedurals) are a staple of the film/TV industry and are (believe it or not) as common as comedies or romcoms. However, within that category, "big" PPs based on big crimes are not that common. In fact, you would have to go back to the early 70s when a number of "big PPs" like Day of the Jackal 1973 were all the rage.. So, a film like ...

  • A review from someone that was actually there

    March 26th, 2017

    I was there living in Boston at the time of the bombings. I was in the city to try to get a look at the Marathon finish line. Luckily I didn't get that close. I did see and hear the bombs go off. My God the blood was everywhere I could see that from even where I was standing. It was absolute chaos.. This film is incredibly accurate. Mark Wahlberg'...

  • Good Film but Lacks Depth

    March 18th, 2017

    There seem to be a lot of negative reviews for this movie because of an apparent mis-telling of the story or true story or hoax or whatever else people have said. As I'm not American, and have very little to do with American events (so hence have no context as to the truth or hoax or conspiracy or whatever of the Boston Marathon) I shall just stic...

  • Would've been better as a documentary

    March 20th, 2017

    People are captivated by the extraordinary events. And people love to be entertained. So what could possibly be better than a dramatic story of extraordinary nature. Especially if it's based on real events, shows the heroism of simple people and touches the audience's sensitive patriotic spot.. That's basically a recipe for Patriots Day. Take the ...

  • Very disappointed with a small - yet incredibly important message from film.

    February 28th, 2017

    Don't know if this is actually a spoiler but won't risk anyway :. When a film is 'Based On True Events' and it is almost as a matter of fact entirely and truly based on the true events, it is extremely disappointing and shocking when Tamerlan Tsarnaev's wife is being questioned and said that she is born in Iran (and pausing after the sentence) - w...

  • Great film

    March 27th, 2017

    I thoroughly enjoyed this movie as one of Bostonians. This movie does not have over-the-top action sequences or over-acting. It just tells story as it happened and I really liked that. Yes, there are some non-existing characters and elements, but I think those make movie progression little smoother.. I highly recommend this movie. ...

  • Tolerance is Patriotic

    March 29th, 2017

    What does it say about this film that went from possible Oscar contender to box office flop? Or perhaps, the question is, what does it say about us? I did not have any interest to see "World Trade Center" when it was released. To a degree, I felt this was making money off of tragedy. Maybe too soon after the event. I also didn't care to have the e...

  • Best movie of 2016 - why does IMDb allow reviews with lies?

    March 28th, 2017

    This was a fantastic movie about a tragic say in American history. Yet somehow the second most popular review is a complete lie. seydeh from Berkeley, California(of course) claims the movie says the terrorists wife is from Iran during her interrogation. The movie never says that. In fact it's quite obvious she is a converted American terrorist. Ap...

  • A Marathon Investigation

    March 18th, 2017

    While there are predictable social media conspiracy theories that the "whole thing was a hoax", the two bombs that went off near the finish line of the Boston marathon on April 15th 2013 killed three members of the public and injured more than 250 others. It was a life- changing event for those people and their immediate families, but sadly nothin...

  • Don't let the fact that you already know what happened dissuade you from watching this. I highly recommend this

    April 10th, 2017

    "Two people took many days and weeks to plan out hate but love responded in an instant." Tommy Saunders (Wahlberg) is a Sargent in the BPD. He is assigned to the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. As the race is winding down the unthinkable happens and Tommy is right in the middle of one of the worst terrorist attacks in history. Now, with l...
