News & Interviews for Patriots Day
Critic Reviews for Patriots Day
It's not suspenseful so much as commemorative and even, in paying tribute to the resilient spirit of Boston and all of those caught up in this attack, celebratory. It's a kind of civic tribute.
This movie chronicles the hours before the bombing and the manhunt over the days afterwards, often in forensic detail, combining traditional crime-thriller drama with real CCTV, news and mobile phone footage.
The strong narrative pulse overrides the irritation of Wahlberg's blue-collar alpha-saint.
The hard-drive details of the day's horror stay with you.
Patriots Day is stirring, well-acted, moving and built with conviction and flair.
Audience Reviews for Patriots Day
Intense, exciting and terrifying account of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the hunt for the culprits in the days after. Even though the film sticks to the most important characters involved and follows events almost in the style of a documentary it does pack quite the emotional punch. Great cast and direction makes for a pretty emotional ride. Of course you gotta have the message of Bostonian unity in the end, but given the circumstances, that's quite alright.
Despite less-than-compelling performances and a lack of artistic perspective, "Patriot's Day" packs an emotional punch on a visceral level. I found the time spent watching the film was rewarding.
Berg & Wahlberg, once more, help shed light on a dark time in history. Patriots Day does well in depicting evenly the tragedy and drama behind the events from April 2013 while also highlighting the heart and captivating courage of those who were victims and those who responded; sending a heartfelt and respectful acknowledgment in the process. 4.5/5
