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...

  • People are reacting to the theme not the quality of the movie

    April 17th, 2017

    People who are giving this movie a higher rating are most likely reacting to the theme of the movie and not being objective about the film itself. I rented the flick, without knowing anything about the film or who directed it. I knew of the story of course, but the cast was good, and it looked interesting so I rented it. My opinion was cast blindl...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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...

  • I didn't know it was THAT bad....

    June 19th, 2017

    Spoiler - ......and you thought when they were running the Marathon bombers down there was a little gunfight in the town of Watertown....... Think again - it was more like WWIII.. Excellent recreation from 4 hours before, thru the Marathon bombing and the following 100 hours. Mark Wahlberg "composites" for a lot of folks and shows up all over the ...

  • A Great Film

    June 17th, 2017

    I felt this was an excellent does a great job at introducing each person involved. The story matter involved is of course the Boston bombings that happened a few years back. I never did get the full story then when it happened...just bits and fragments of info that I read about.. I learned a quite a few new things regarding that period ...

  • Truly Disappointing Depiction of a Heroic Event

    June 12th, 2017

    This is an awful movie. Why is it getting such positive ratings? I guess some of the other reviewers are right--people are rating their feelings associated with the real event and not this movie itself.. The bombers were portrayed as smart and competent and brave. The cops were portrayed as inexperienced, frightened klutzes.. Except Wahlberg, who ...
