Storyline

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.

Trivia

The film's script was merged by two separate scripts. One was called "Boston Strong", and focused more on the action thriller side of the story. Another was titled "Patriots' Day", which was more of a factual drama. The final script was a mix of the two, which would have the film be both factually correct, and would have some tense action to keep the audience involved, and entertained. See more »

Great film
27 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie as one of Bostonians. This movie does not have over-the-top action sequences or over-acting. It just tells story as it happened and I really liked that. Yes, there are some non-existing characters and elements, but I think those make movie progression little smoother.

I highly recommend this movie.
