  • 4 stars "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!"
  • 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."
