I saw this in theatres. Made me want to try. I started to tear up. I found this was better than Berg's Deepwater Horizon. Not sure why Peter Berg did 2 movies like that back to back and starring Wahlberg, but this was the better for the two. Deepwater was an accident waiting to happen. Patriots Day is an attack and truly showed the city and region coming together and even giving up their civil liberties (curfew) to track down the culprits and FAST! True story and wow. And again the obligatory pictures and bios at the end made me tear up. Real people whose lives were ruined by a senseless act while cheering on healthy people who have a goal to run a marathon. I even felt sorry for the terrorists' kids!
Very good movie, a must watch
Wow. This movie shocked me. Being a Canadian, I tend to be a little skeptical of these movies only because I'm not a fan of American propaganda; waving the giant stars and stripes in your face etc. This movie killed me emotionally. To feel the pain of the victims of this horrendous and disgusting terrorist act made me want to fight alongside the citizens and police of Boston. The acting was brilliant. Wahlberg, as always in my opinion, delivered an excellent performance. He's such an underrated actor and, like DiCaprio, deserves a lot more accolades. Incredible story, incredible acting, incredible emotion. I had to fight the tears and anger watching these two delusional maniacs wreak havoc and pain on the beautiful city of Boston. A must watch.
wow Hollywood makes movies out of every thing i but a lot of this movie is fabricated
WOW! What a brilliant portrayal of events is a tough moment in our history! Hard to watch the carnage but necessary.
Great movie to see with these famous Actors Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon, And John Goodman just love when they searching for these bad guys in the city of Boston at the end a true story of the Boston marathon bombing. Must see.
Very realistic and captivating! Mark Walberg is one hell of an actor.
Very good very intense you're in for one hell of a ride
Based on the News Reports I recall this was a very realistic portrayal for the most part. I just wonder if the shootout scene and the boat capture scene weren't a little over the top as compared to how the real events went down?
Unbelievable!! One of the best movies I have ever seen. I'll never forget that shootout scene in the neighbourhood or the interviews and pictures at the end. I never cry at movies but boy I just couldn't prevent myself at this one. Powerful.
My God I love Mark Wahlberg's acting!! 5 stars all the way! ***** Best line in the movie, "why did I have to kick that f**ken door!??"
Worth seeing. More detail than was ever in the news. Surprised at how low key yet violent the 2 bombers were and the firefight surrounding their capture. Wahlburg is so good at the Boston type movies.
Enjoyed this movie very much. It kept you engaged from start to finish. A must see!
Amazing movie! Well done and very interesting.
I can see no redeeming traits in this movie. If you watched the news carefully when this happened you know exactly what will happen next, not much new and novel here.
This movie has restored my faith in Americans. It was well done, showing that they are seeing they no longer need to fear, but to find peace and love through what has happened to them by terrorist and such. Stay strong my friends! You have the power to overcome any thing that is thrown at you. Thank you for creating a movie that has shown the human heart through courage perciverance and Love. Peace be with you! :-)
Great movie. Certainly delivers the story behind the story. The way the people were affected by this act of cowardice, is interwoven very nicely throughout this film. I agree with other filmgoers that the end certainly gets the tear ducts flowing. Really strong movie making. Go see for yourself. A must see!!
Go and see this movie!!!! Well done!!!!
It is a great movie. Thumbs up.
Great movie, provided information that I never knew occurred during this tragedy. Appreciated the recap at the end that confirmed what we saw was factual, as well as Hollywood can be, about the events. I also love Mark Wahlberg, so I'm biased!
Great movie....very well written and acted by everyone. I would recommend this movie to everyone. ....go see it.
Good from beginning to end! Mark Walburg did a great job!
It was a good movie from start to finish
Best movie I've seen in the last year. Even though you know the outcome it keeps you riveted to the very end.
One of the most powerful movies I've seen in a long time. This will stick with me for a long time
Great movie. I did not know of the deaths, shoot outs that took place after the original bombs.
Excellent movie....Boston strong!!!
So well directed and some great acting. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the movie!
Such a good movie and very well done.
Wow! An excellent movie! Well done and I learned a lot. Highly recommend.
I was thoroughly impressed. A very mature work of art and true events. I really enjoyed how they pieced the film together with real footage mixed with recreating events. There were a few laughs and plenty to cry about. At the end, I really liked the interviews with the actual people involved. I rarely have ever cried during a movie and I did for this so that makes it a great movie and an Oscar contender in my opinion.
