    Great American Movie

    Really intense film. I was in Cambridge during the events and saw hundreds of police cars converging at fast speed on Watertown, a really sleepy little bedroom town next to Boston, across the Charles River. I remember that being in a lockdown was eerie. Boston and neighboring four towns were affected. All of us stayed inside and police helicopters flew overhead, looking for movement. It was really scary -- like being in a war zone. After the shelter in place order was lifted around 6 pm on the second day, the man with the boat went out to smoke and peeked inside his boat and saw the second bomber semi conscious inside. I was surprised and glad that the police took him alive. They were pretty pumped up as there had been a vicious shooting of an MIT campus police officer the day before. He was killed execution style in his car, with his gun still in its holster. The cold vicious nature of the killing affected the police. Police are a very tight knit group in Boston. Transit cop, University cop -- it didn't matter. The whole experience was as terrible and chilling as depicted. And the spirit of Boston Strong that was born that day was real. The courage of everyone was incredible. And people cheered police after the arrest was made, as shown. Yes, that was very real. Five stars for bringing the whole experience back so realistically. Made me cry. Second bomber: A federal jury gave him death. In a liberal place like Massachusetts. It was the death of the young boy that sealed it. And defendants flipping the bird to a security camera. He was unrepentant and passive during the trial. In the sentencing portion, he read a statement of apology but it did not appear to be his own. Four years later, he sits on death row in a supermax prison in Colorado. Appeals could take years.

    3D, 4K who cares its Patriots Day!

    Ok when I watch films I do so on a 180" movie theater screen with full 7.1 surround sound and the Buttkicker transducer system. This is not to Boast but to give an idea of the clarity that I rate both 4k and 1080p films. 1st off regardless if you are huge into 4k or still collect Blu-ray; I will add that with today's (Oppo) upscaling technology along with upscaling technology on theater projectors that the difference between Blu-ray & 4k is minimal. I will say that going over 180" that you will likely see a difference and recommend 4k for 150"+ screens. I found the film to be Perfect for the big screen! There are certain films I get home after buying and wish I would have supported them in the theater too. This film (like Deep Horizen) both with Mark Warburg showed incredible strength through real life stories that were brutally tragic. I did like the fact that M. Warburg was not some super hero, but has started to play the average guy. Don't get me wrong he is no Tom Hanks nor Bendadict Cumberbach but he's actually really good at playing parts with more emotion. I will watch this film again. I'm glad I bought it. There's nothing worse than buying a film that lacks replay-ability. PS> Great to see those little terroistic morons get what was hunted....

    Sad day of the Boston Bombing with a few lives killed needlessly and hundreds injured or maimed forever. The worst of us was clear to see on this day but also the BEST of us was clear to see on this day as well too! VERY happy that the terrorists who perpetrated this were apprehended and prevented a much worse tragedy from happening in New York! If you love TRUE stories that don't start well as this clearly doesn't but DOES have a much more positive ending then this movie is most certainly for you for sure! Not a Boston native at all but I have a few friends who grew up in Taunton, not overly far from Boston...and they're the greatest people too! Since Mark Wahlberg is a Boston native, I KNEW he'd put on another incredible performance and really made me believe he was actually a Boston cop that day too! One of his best roles I've ever seen him in and I've seen a bunch of them over the years too! #BOSTONSTRONG :-)

    Competent Acting, Masterful Directing

    The "twin 'bergs" are at it again:director Peter Berg & actor Mark Wahlberg with another film based on real-life events under traumatic circumstances: "Lone Survivor,""Deepwater Horizon." In "Patriots Day," which I was able to get for $9.99 pre-Father's Day(I'm glad I waited) for Blu-Ray/DVD Combo pack, the viewer gets to see viewpoints of not only those injured in the '13 "Patriots Day" Boston Marathon but those of the terrorist brothers, as well. I enjoyed the interplay near the end of film with actor Jimmy Yang, who played college student Dun Meng, and the terrorist brothers. Meng gets carjacked by the brothers & is the catalyst for Boston P.D. & accompanying communities to strike back against the evil forces that threaten citizens(U.S. or otherwise) on American soil. U.S.A.!!!!!! I look forward to the next 'berg collaboration soon!

    Boston "Strong" America the "Courageous"

    This film chronicles the events of Boston’s Patriots Day Marathon, Monday April 15, 2013 and related events through April 19th 10:35PM when the 2md Suspect of the Marathon Bombing was captured and arrested while hiding inside a winterized 25’ Sport Fishing Boat. The Producer, Screen Writer, and Director went to great lengths as did its’ entire acting staff to get-it-right and they did. It’s a viewer immersion event – you are in the middle of it all thanks to dtsX and one can very easily get caught-up in the story-line as it does have the capability to reach-out and emotionally touch the audience – it is intensive and realistic. Not only did this film capture the spirit of Boston “Strong” but it also captured the spirit of America the “Courageous.”

    Being a Boston native, I bought this movie hoping it would be truthful and not gloss it over. I wasn't disappointed. Naturally they had to throw in a personal story of one of the cops involved, but other than that it stuck to the story and used some actual news footage. Some parts were painful to watch for me but I really appreciate the way they told what actually took place. The bravery of all of the police and firefighters, first responders, medical teams, marathoners themselves, and especially the people of Boston who showed the pride and love of their city. Great job.

    Great great movie! I hardly make a comment, but this movie deserves to be praised. The movie shows not only the spectacular manhunt that occurred in Boston, but it also humanizes the suffering of the victims and illustrates how cruel and coward is a terrorist attack. Now I must mention that the biggest civilian hero of this tragic event is Dun Meng, a brave Chinese student that was carjacked at gunpoint by the terrorists. His action allowed the Boston Police to caught the terrorists and prevented the Tsarnaev brothers to continue their plan to attack NY.

    Peter Berg has gotten very good at telling a thrilling true to life tale with little manipulation of the facts and characters. Revealing the human spirit and condition the creates heroes out of everyday citizens and those persons that choose to put their lives on the line on a daily basis, the first responders Police, Fire and EMS. One scene that especially got to me was the Highway Patrolman who stood guard over the body of an 8 year old boy until he was removed from the crime scene. His salute as they took the boy's body was with the dignity given to a fallen comrade in the line of duty.

    Although set not so long ago, this story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, surprises with it's eye for detail not many of us might remember. Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, in their third collaboration (after Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon) again thrill and move us with a real life story that is filled with action and drama. In the last 15 minutes we see actual footage of that day and meet some of the real characters of the Boston Strong. Also, in the special features, more light is shed on the bonds that were forged as a result of the horrific events of that day. Lest we forget!

    I found it very difficult to watch the bombing, to watch what happened to so many people...but the portrayals were so inspiring it brought tears to my eyes. From the strength and courage of all the injured, all the police and FBI, all the nurses and doctors so determined to do their absolute best to insure justice, to be hopeful and strong and not allow terror to win. What happened was truly horrible but the courage and bravery that made Boston Strong was in full display from beginning to end. I loved this movie.

    There was a lot of things I learned from this movie about what happened at the Boston Marathon terrorist attack which many of the news stations didn't cover so I really thought this movie was excellent. Incredible to think that our tax money was paying for the university education of one these terrorists and we still had many government officials denying it was related to terrorism. I know the movie had a lot of different opinions but if you want to get a clear picture of what happened that day you should definitely check this movie out.

    When dealing with 'based on true events' movie (or TV for that matter), there is always going to be some "Hollywooding" up of what happened, in other words they add/change things. I think for the most part that this movie is reasonably accurate in what happened that day and in the days that followed... the use of actual video from cell phones and security cameras helped to bring that feel of authenticity to the movie. Mark Wahlberg did a good job in the lead role, the supporting cast did a pretty good job too.

    I picked this up using my rewards certificate, didn't expect much not really a fan of movies based on true events, to me they feel like cash grabs, but was I wrong this masterpiece is the best movie purchasing decision I ever made in recent years. Not really fan of movies that are longer than 1 hour and 1/2 attention span isn't there, but this movie was so engaging and never a dull moment I was shocked when the 2+ hours were over just like that.

    It told the story in a straight forward manner. One thing with 4K blurays...they are shaper with superior color rendition.However I recommend that you find a 4K scene that contains objects with details in a high contrast situation. Then using your 4K player...not TV controls adjust brightness and contrast...to raise the overall brightness level of the picture without losing sharpness contrast or color. 4K discs are mastered assuming a dimly lit room; so they appear to dark under normal circumstances.

    This movie is a wonderful way of honoring the lives lost in the Boston Marathon. It is really well directed and the cast really helps with giving you the true story of that horrible day. This movie is is a must see, very respectfully told on film it is also a wonderful way to see how committed the first responders helped to keep Boston United even under the worst possible conditions

    Excellent acting and intense action scenes in this compelling tale of the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013. Hard to watch because you know what is coming. The background of various victims pre-bombing is described which makes it that much more upsetting. Not a recommended film for the squeamish and/or sensitive. The brothers are shown as truly evil with no shred of human empathy and compassion. Thank goodness they never made to New York their next bombing site.

    This is a wonderful movie and looks fantastic on UHD. My only complaint is with the language, which is realistic, and that's why may not be likable by many parents in the presence of kids. Also looks like directors are trying to add more drama vs. tense situation. A tense situation in movie need not be dramatic, I mean overacted by the performers. A tense situation could be something which can be felt with no words and no action. It is still a must watch.

    The movie is a true Patriot's Day movie with the action and intensity of a fictional work, but the things these officers endured, and the extent of work to catch the terrorists scum is truly incredible. Outside of the action, it shows conflict between government agencies, which is more true than anybody can imagine, and the processes used to find coward killers out of crowds of thousands. The sound of the 4k and ATMOS adds another dimension.

    Alum actor Mark Wahlberg is back for another great movie about the Boston Marathon bombings. It is directed by a not well-known director, Peter Berg, who took us on a very emotional ride following the events of the people surrounding the events of the bombings. The script was well written, the cast acting was perfect, and the directing was excellent. I think that everyone should see this movie! Two thumbs up!! BOSTON STRONG!!
