    Boston Strong

    Peter Berg and Mark Walberg make their third collaboration in yet another tale of strength and heroism based on a true story. Upon the announcement that a film was going to be made based on the Boston Marathon bombing, I was originally very skeptical and thought the film was in poor taste. However, once I had seen Berg's first collaboration with Wahlberg, Lone Survivor, I was filled with a sense of optimism as I thought that film was very well executed and handled with great respect for the real life counterparts that the film is based on. Through my research into the events of the Boston tragedy, it does appear that the film did take certain liberties with the real life events in an effort to make the film more action driven. That being said, the result is pretty excellent. The film showcases the valiant efforts of the agencies and individuals responsible for bringing the terrorists to justice but beyond that, the film focuses on the spirit of the city through it's people. On top of that Wahlberg, a native Boston son, gives one of his best performances. From a technical standpoint, the 4K disc has a top notch audio visual presentation, despite the film being a 2K upscale. If you are a fan of Berg or Wahlberg and can pick it up for a reasonable price, Patriot's Day comes recommended from this reviewer.

    This movie got me more in the know of what happened during this sad day in Boston. Seeing this put together after reading about it and watching the news really seems on point. The acting is believable and since I purchased the 4K version I'm happy with the picture. I did not give this 5 stars only because I did not get any wow factor watching it in 4K. I think it would of been just as good if I purchased it in regular Blu Ray. I just expected more because 4K Ultra HD Blu Rays cost about 2X the amount and for that I wanted it to be a better experience. I do have all the 4K equipment so I know it's not my fault. Do not decide against buying this movie because it is a good movie but maybe you can get it on sale.

    When evil comes to America

    It's not often that an actor tackles the role of one of the most hated people in America. Peter Berg, not a household named director, makes this films viewers hate the two men who detonated two bombs during a marathon. Patriot Day, while not a great film is at the least very entertaining. We witness the explosions, the aftermath and the manhunt. We are there for the chase, the arrest and the shootouts. This film is entertaining and stars some very good actors in smaller roles. Oh and it also stars Marky Mark. And here it's not such a bad thing.

    I enjoyed Patriots Day as a police procedural thriller, and thought it accomplished what it set out to quite well. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing was a disheartening tragedy, and its heroes and victims should to be honored. In that regard, I appreciate what they were setting out to do with this film. I can be more than my share of cynical, but I can't be cynical enough to believe that this wasn't an earnest tribute to those heroes and victims. My enjoyment of this film isn't about religion or politics, but rather the thrilling tension I thought it provided in spades.

    I'm from the Boston area so lived through all these events. The movie gets the atmosphere spot on. Even though the main character is fiction, I was alright with it as he was being used to drive the narrative of the story. There were a couple of scenes near the end though, where it would have made sense for him not to be involved (and that's why I took away a star). A very good movie, and well worth watching.

    This is a great movie! If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. Mark Walburg movies are usually good! The only bad thing about my movie purchase was the way Best Buy package my order and mailed to me with stickers on the front of the movie sleeve. I don't know about anyone else but I don't like stickers placed on the front of movie covers. So I'll be taking it back for an exchange.

    This is the account of actual members of Boston Police and an account of the moment by moment events as they unfolded as well as the way Boston came together to find the culprits of the violent act. A testimony to the human spirit and how love can conquer evil. With actual accounts from the people there and witness a city come together in their most destructive hours.

    If was made up from scratch would not have been 4 stars but a very good movie about such a tragic real event. Tells most of the story without going over the top. Love watching Hollywood do Boston...did a decent job on this one. Was home the day it happened rather than in town. Having lived in Watertown and been to most of the areas on screen it was especially exciting.

    Color is a little off

    I've noticed that the 4k version of this film has an odd color correction to it. I've watched plenty of 4k on my TV, with Deadpool looking the best, but this one seems a little off. Nevertheless, it's still an awesome visual piece, and great movie. Bought it at $17, comes with the Bluray, which I know looks great, so either way it was a great purchase.

    All though I know many people thought this movie was to soon to write. However, if it was 10 years later it still would be to soon. It was well written and directed. Got to the point of what is Bostonians experienced on that day. Coming from Boston I know what it felt like that day and only we know if this movie has portrayed how everyone felt.

    This is one of those movies that seems like it's gonna be flooded with overt patriotism, the kind that makes Americans look overly zealous, but it's actually more restrained than that and pays thoughtful tribute to the victims, the first responders, the police units, and everyone who tried to help on the day of the Boston Bombing.

    Thought this was a well done movie about the events of the boston marathon bombing. The scenes at the marathon are good but graphic and the shootout scene was one of the best I've seen in years. A little far fetched with Mark Wahlberg's character being involved in everything but other than that, it seemed pretty accurate.

    From the director of Lone Survivor & Deepwater Horizon comes Patriots Day. Based on the true story of the Boston Marathon Bombings.the cast is excellent and the details in this film are great. It's a very emotional experience that must be seen. Stars Mark Wahlberg, J.K Simmons, John Goodman & Alex Wolff

    I was skepical buying this one only because I thought maybe it was too soon to relive that day. I will say this, I was wrong! This film handles everything so well. It was heart wrenching and powerful. If you're worried don't be! It's great. Picture and audio are also fabulous, the 4K really shines!

    I was not sure if this movie would be any good considering that it was not that long after the actual events took place. I thought Mark Wahlberg did a great job in his role and the rest of the cast was great. It was a good representation of what happened and I felt that it was handled well.

    Mark Whalburg delivers a great performance in this historical account of the Boston Bombing. Expect an emotional rollercoaster due to amazing acting and directing. Might want to keep a box of Kleenex nearby. The real victims and their families speak on that fateful day after the ending credits.

    Wahlburg is the foil thru which told, and he is effective without getting in the way. I am very familiar with the original sequence, and this is largely true to it. Special effects are great. If you do not know what a foil does in a story, he is a person thru which the plot is revealed.

    While it feels a little soon for a docudrama about the Boston marathon bombings (it seems like I was JUST watching the news coverage), this is an effective action-drama and the third such successful collaboration between Mark Wahlberg and Pete Berg (after Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon).

    Was very looking forward to this films release. All in all its a really good movie that covers a lot of different aspects of the bombing and everything in between. I just wish they took a little more time making this film as I feel it could be a lot better if they put a little more into it

    I enjoyed Patriots Day which had alot of action and was mostly based on a true event. Provided a timeline for events as they unfolded. People that lost their lives or were injured in this event was a tragedy.
