Patriots Day Description

Based upon the dramatic real-life manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers, this powerful action-thriller follows Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) as he joins brave survivors, first responders, and investigators in a race against time to find the bombers before they strike again. Directed by Peter Berg (LONE SURVIVOR) and featuring a stellar cast, PATRIOTS DAY is a stirring tribute to the Boston community's strength and courage in the face of adversity.
On April 15, 2013 Boston, Massachusetts, Police Sgt, Tommy Saunders is pulling security duty on the annual Boston Marathon when the Tsarnaev brothers strike with their homemade bombs in an act of terrorism. In the resulting chaos as the wounded are cared for, Saunders and his comrades join forces with the FBI to get to the bottom of this attack. As the investigation continues, the Tsarnaev brothers realize that the authorities are close to identifying them and attempt to flee the city to continue their fanatical mayhem. To stop them, a police manhunt is performed that would have bloody confrontations and a massive dragnet shutting down the City of Boston to make sure there is no escape from the law.
An account of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis's actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists behind it.

Patriots Day Movie Reviews

  • Awesome

    Gripping, thrilling, heart wrenching, I cried at least 5 times. A hard watch due to the reality of the event but Just watch it
  • Exploiting tradegy

    This formulatic script is starting to clearly become a recipe for American movies... made it about 10 minutes and let rental expire.
  • πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

    Just a profound movie and emotionally riveting! Superb work by Peter Berg!
  • Amazing!

    Best movie I've seen in a while
  • Incredible, entertaining, and accurate

    I moved to Boston one week after these tragic events. I experienced first hand how close knit the people of Boston are. Visiting the makeshift memorial in Copely Square showed me the reoslve the people of Boston have for each other and the lives touched by this tragedy. Watch this movie. It's absolutely fantastic and is an exciting rush from start to finish. This movie captured all of the real facts that I heard from friends that worked in downtown Boston as well as the local news which, I'm sure, continued covering the story even when I got to Boston one week after the tragic event. Also watch the iTunes Extra content. There are several small featurettes that not only go over how the movie was made but also interviews with the real people that were portrayed.
  • Good movie, way too intense

    I feel like this movie does a good job of telling the story, but it wasn't as intense as it is portrayed in the film. I live in the suburbs of Boston, near Watertown, and yes it was very scary and frightening. Just not as much as the movie shows it to be.
  • heck yeah

    heck of a movie
  • Wahlberg continues his great (true-story) storytelling

    Another great true story Wahlberg has brought to the silver-screen. #BostonStrong
  • Wow - a must see

    Boston Strong! Mark Wahlberg and the staff were amazing...
  • As testament to good

    Fantastic movie!!! Emotionally riveting. Berg and Wahlberg nailed the emotion, compassion, patriotism, camaraderie, and hope. There is no way you won't like this movie.
