We rented Patriots' Day last night - I honestly didn't expect much and I was pleasantly surprised. To me, Wahlbergs macho Boston thing can be tedious but the film was good enough to minimize it.
The film gave me insight into the Boston Marathon bombings invesigation while I remembered how shocked and sad I felt when the event occurred.
There were many white knuckle moments, especially the car jacking of Dun Meng and the Watertown shoot out that was realistically chaotic and not Hollywood BS - and the film successfully captured how vulnerable the City was for those 4 days.
What was most impressive was the positive message from the real-life victims at the end - the belief that love prevails and that people are basically good.
I'm curious to what others thought of this film. I thought it was excellent.
