As I went to see this movie, I didn't have much knowledge of what itwas about the movie, the motive for me to see it was the ratings andMark Wahlberg. Patriots day is a movie about the Boston marathonbombings in 2013, plotted by terrorists. The story is based aroundTommy Saunders played by Mark Wahlberg. Overall I was amazed of themovie, which is no surprise for Peter Berg I soon realized but theediting, the emotion, the acting was brilliant. I am always attractedto movies with a true story like Hacksaw Ridge, and Deepwater Horizonwhich was also Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg teamed together as actorand director. The person who went to see the movie with me said it wasone of the best movies she's seen. Mark Wahlberg also claims this isthe most important film of his career.
Actors and directors: Of course Mark Wahlberg did a magnificent jobagain in this hit film. The movie starred him but the movie didn'treally revolve around him throughout the whole movie like deep waterhorizon. The "I want pictures of Spider man guy" J.K. Simmons was alsoin the film, aged a bit since I've last seen him but he did great ashis role, he will also be "commissioner Gordon" In the upcoming JusticeLeague movie. John Goodman was also in the movie playing CommissionerEd Davis, which he played well. Peter Berg as director was great again.The action shots of when the bombs exploded during the marathon wereshot so good and the way he recorded the events were magnificent ( notgoing into too much detail for spoiler purposes ).
Plot: The true story movie was about the Boston bombings in 2013. Nowwhen true story are made into movies, they most likely have a big yeargap towards the actual event and the movie. Three years isn't a hugedifference but I guess Peter Berg couldn't wait to release the hitmovie. As you do see though a lot of true story movies are always beingreleased now-a-days more then they did before, I guess directors arerunning out of ideas.
Feedback: If you are a person who enjoys watching movies based offtrue, shocking events this is another movie for you. I think this moviedeserves a bit more popularity, not like it lacks popularity, its justmagnificent movies like these deserves to be viewed by a lot morepeople. A lot of lives got lost on that day and hundreds where injured,with amputated legs and all sorts of horrifying things. This shows youa great dramatization of what happened of the day and the lead of howthey take down the terrorists. The movie shows all the brave people whosacrificed time and effort to tack down these people. I recommendeveryone go see this movie, whenever you can, I really recommend it. Irate Patriots Day a 8.3/10.

I expected the Boston marathon event to get a film version sooner. It did not disappoint. If Peter Berg could direct the actual event, it would surely be less obviously fake. The film is far more of a disheartening disaster than the true fake thing. In spite this film being much larger than life, I just can't give it more than 1. I hate Hollywood blatantly insulting intelligence.
What is this movie trying to say? I ask without a desire to be controversial or contrarian towards the vast ocean of critics and filmgoers who loved this film. I'm aware of the craftsmanship involved in a film like this, I'm aware of the feats it likely took to keep this film tasteful and lord knows that to some, this movie is going to feel like a satisfactory catharsis. In interviews director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have stated the film should be seen as a movie about a city coming together to fight evil. "The more research I did, the more I realized it really was an example of a community working together" said Berg. But despite good intentions and diplomatic words (or lip service depending on how close you are to this), at the end of the day I still need to ask myself, what really, is the point here?
The main story of Patriots Day needs no retelling. I'm sure a lot of Americans are acutely aware of where they were on April 15, 2013; certainly every Bostonian is. The dramatic arc of the movie and part of what makes the movie so "tasteful" is it bends and weaves through the lives of different people intimately involved in the terrorist plot. Such people include Patrick Downes (O'Shea) and Jessica Kensky (Brosnahan), a young couple injured by the first explosion; Officer Sean Collier (Picking), the MIT policeman who was shot and killed in the line of duty; Chinese national Dun Meng (Yang) who was briefly held hostage by the bombers and Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (Simmons) who brought down the elder of the Tsarnaev brothers.
Then of course there's Mark Wahlberg who plays the very fictional and very chuckle-headed Tommy Saunders (Wahlberg); a Boston cop whose story, I think, is meant to serve as connective tissue. His character provides a very insidious discord; not only because his inclusion in everything from the bombing, to the shootout, to the final arrest is downright serendipitous, but because he pulls focus in order to rationalize vigilante justice. He waxes poetically about moral absolutes, gets in the face of investigative brass, jumps every preordained hoop that gets him closer to the bad guys and still has time to weep over the aftermath of the attack. Come to think of it, Wahlberg's not just connective tissue, he's the whole f***ing box and at some point in the film his mugging just stops becoming forgivable.
The other odious element of the film is the inclusion, exploration and exploitation of the Tsarnaev brothers played by Alex Wolff and Themo Melikidze. They are introduced amid a flurry of intros in the first ten minutes - the score bellowing in minor keys as Tamerlan (Melikidze) watches ISIS videos while consuming Cheerios. Now while there's no inherent problem with heavily inferring these guys are, in fact the bad guys, the movie is supposedly intended to be "about Boston". So why include these characters at all? What insights can be gained about the grit and determination of Beantown from a pair of sad, pathetic, anti-social wannabe terrorists? Nothing - unless the goal of their inclusion is to exploit our fears and make them something more than a pair of sad, pathetic, anti-social wannabe terrorists.
To that end the film does a pretty fine job being a taut, story beat conscious piece of bluster that elevates what was in reality a messy, painstaking investigation into a simplistic fight between good vs. evil. Meanwhile the Tsarnaev clowns and to a lesser extent the elder's wife (Benoist) are all portrayed as the apex of storybook evil. The kind of evil that only loosely wears a human face. It's a tact that despite being easily digestible is immediately complicated when you consider the younger Tsarnaev is awaiting an appeal of his death sentence and the wife (whom the movie heavily implies knew everything), is still around and bracing for a new glut of death threats.
It's interesting to note that Patriots Day is the result of two separate scripts combined to make one big compromised movie. And while you can tell great pains were exercised in the service of this film, the end result still feels like a tug-o-war. There's the fictional composite lead and the true-to-life ensemble. There's the genre clichés artlessly retrofitted with the honest human elements. There's the story of hope in the face of terror, shadowed by an agenda that cheapens the whole ordeal. What's truly lost in the smoke, mirrors and Markie Mark chest beating is the actual story of Boston. A story that could have yielded a rich civic mosaic. Instead what we got was a movie that just reeks of opportunism.
