  • 5 stars "Very good movie, a must watch"
  • 5 stars "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."
