Goofs

The first Boston Marathon bomb was set off at 2:49:43, on the race clock at the finish line read 04:09:43. However in the movie, when the first bomb was set off, the clock at the finish line read 02:59:30. meaning they put the time of day which it happened (which was also wrong) but it should have showed the race time. which is 04:09:43. (seen in the trailer.) See more »

Patriotic Pride Rings Throughout The Movie
14 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mark Wahlberg and disaster movies seem to go hand and hand these days and this weekend brings the latest installment in his library. Today I got to see Patriots Day, a movie that dramatizes the Boston Marathon Bombing in 2013. Like all disaster movies, it holds the promise for inspiring the audience or stirring up emotion. But has Hollywood hit its saturation point? Hi Robbie K here, with a new abbreviated review of Patriots Day. Let's get started

LIKES: • Very Detailed • Good visual/audio techniques • Emotionally strong movie

Summary: When it comes to historical movies we like details and Patriots Day does not fall short in portraying this tragic event. From the bombings to the manhunt, you get to see the thrilling, and sometimes chilling, journey to bring the case to a close. The movie shows the events from the perspectives of many involved including victims, cops, and the terrorists themselves. An even more impressive twist is the smooth integration of real life security clips that helps keep the facts in check, while also showing the inspiration of the movie. When you take these clips, and mix them with the movie magic of scene and music editing, you get incredibly powerful scenes that are certain to inspire you. I agree with the trailers that Patriots Day is one of the most emotional stirring pieces to grace the silver screen this year. So many sequences promote the concepts of uniting in the face of danger, perseverance of spirit, and American pride. It had many in my viewing sniffling and certainly got some goosebumps going in this reviewer. Therefore, Patriots Day editing is certainly the selling point of this movie.

DISLIKES • Movie magic overdramatizes • Some editing issues • May poke some snakes

Summary: As seen many times in Hollywood, the magic of the cinema sometimes steps into overdramatic role. Patriots Day, despite how emotionally stirring it is, does cross into preachy side at times. While it certainly is inspiring, much of the ending moments (primarily the dialogue) is geared towards American pride that may be seen as boastful. In addition, some people may not appreciate the portrayal of the various characters, perhaps thinking they were too extreme in their renditions. Yes, some of the audience said this during the movie. But outside of overdramatic moments and extreme portrayals, the only other component for me was some of the editing lapses in the movie. There are certain scenes that attempt to show some of the background info on the characters (e.g. dating, guys getting high on weed, etc) which were certainly entertaining or aggravating. However, these moments were either not timed right, or more often not needed for me to get the emotional kick of the movie. And to be honest, most of these clips do extend the cast's screen time.

The Verdict: Patriots Day is a movie that will bring some sort of emotion to most audience members. The detail is fantastic and makes you feel a part of the team in this epic manhunt, establishing that rage to capture the bad guys. The special effects and audio score will only deepen your immersion into the story. However, be ready for some political discussions and potential airing of grievances when you see the very extreme portrayals in this movie. Overall though, this movie is a solid opening to the year and a welcome break up from the mundane.

My scores:

Drama/History/Thriller: 8.0 Movie Overall: 7.0
