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 ...

  • 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...

  • 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 ...

  • Over Rated!

    March 20th, 2017

    There are certain types of movies that get a "free pass" and are automatically given good reviews because of the subject matter. Usually children's movies, religious movies, movies about gay or lesbians or any other controversial subjects, and movies about national tragedies. I find that this movie has received such good reviews from the critics b...

  • 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...

  • Very Excellent Drama and Thriller as a Movie to watch,enjoy on weekend but contains too much propaganda

    March 18th, 2017

    I watched this movie because it was weekend and it was categorized as Drama, Thriller & History which are my favorite ones.. So I'm gonna be very honest with you, the movie is very fantastically amazing in terms of the thrills it gives you, in terms of the Dramatization and i will give it 10 out of 10 for that, but when it comes to facts, history,...

  • 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'...

  • Great pic

    March 23rd, 2017

    Hello from Czech Republic. Must say this was something. Maybe my imaginations is too good, but i think its the movie. Knowing its based on real events and thinking that could happens to any of us is scary. Acting was very good, camera as well, very nice but sad movie. Lot of voices repeating its full of cliché, American patriotism etc...i say its...

  • Apple pie, with extra cheese !

    March 22nd, 2017

    How the hell did this get a seven point five stars? God this film was cringe worthy. Wahlberg plays an annoying (Very annoying), childish, gobby cop, who mysteriously is looked up to by his superiors. The film was trying to convey the shock and emotion of it all and failed miserably, it just came across as cheesy and self-serving. Don't watch this...
