Good movie about terrorist cowards

When I saw the title and read about the story I thought this movie would be another patriotic-we-are-america-and-we-are-the-greatest movie but it's actually very well done. It's not even chauvinistic like I thought it would be. It just tells the story of the Boston marathon bombings. It's a gripping story that won't leave anybody without an opinion on how those terrorists are just a bunch of cowards and nothing more. It doesn't matter if it's about muslim terrorists or any other white redneck terrorist, they are all just the same, a bunch of cowards. In a man-to-man fight they would always bite the dust so they just kill innocents by using selfmade bombs and other weapons. Patriots Day is a bit of a hommage to the survivors and to the people of Boston that put their forces together to catch those cowards. Mark Wahlberg is always good and in this movie he prooves again he's a top actor. Pleasantly surprised by Patriots Day.

Well-made and touching true story

'Patriots Day' is another "based-on-real-events" film by Berg, after 'Lone Survivor' and 'Deepwater Horizon' - and this is just as good. I think once he got 'Battleship' out of his system, he's only got good directing left! He takes his time introducing a set of ~10 characters in the first 20min (no titles), in the lead up to and the start of the 2013 Boston Marathon. Tommy (Wahlberg) is the everyman cop, Carol (Monaghan) is his wife, Ed (Goodman) is the police commissioner, DesLauriers (Bacon) is the FBI agent, Tamerlan (Melikidze) and Dzhokhar (Wolff) are the bombers, and there's a few other 'regular' couples introduced, so we get coverage of the incident from various angles.

Once the bombs go off, it's utter chaos and is shown very realistically - heart-wrenchingly so - with plenty of smoke, blood, sirens and people screaming everywhere. Tommy does the best he can, but it's good to see him exhausted and overwhelmed once he's back home with Carol. We see firsthand some of the victims in hospital - plenty of amputations. Then, it turns to police/FBI efficiency, with a "hours since bombing" graphic letting us know the timeline, as they try to catch the suspects. This man-hunt aspect of the film keeps the momentum up.

Some of the characters we've been following that seem to have no role are suddenly involved (i.e. Sergeant Pugliese (Simmons) and Meng (Yang)) as the man-hunt escalates into a shootout. I'm not entirely sure of the actual events that happened after the marathon bombing, so I'm not sure how much creative license was taken by Berg, but there's a satisfactory conclusion. The film wraps up with the real-life people of the characters we've been watching speaking on the impact it's had on their lives. There's some truly emotional and touching moments throughout the film, and while it's sometimes too overtly patriotic, it shows the impact on real people and their resilience.

Emotionally tragic film with a strong message of unity.

Mark Wahlberg comes equipped with a strong, invested performance and the supporting actors to match. Not from Boston, or even America but watching the (for the most part - accurate) depiction of a city going through tragedy and turmoil but coming out with a sense of pride and togetherness to boost each other up and resist the fear and terror of the Boston Marathon Bombings was a remarkable thing to witness and it's a film that pays respect to the victims and their families in the most honorable way possible while still telling a cohesive story. Well done.
