Patriots Day (2016)

Director Peter Berg recreates a terror attack with dignity, keeping the pace fast and the emotional quotient intact.

Based on the Boston Marathon bombings, it has a good cast which are there to say the story of their characters. Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, J.K.Simmons and Michelle Monaghan play their parts well, in a responsible way, having the real people at hand as a reference.

It’s a sad state of affairs which leads to anything like this, and we get a glimpse of one of the reasons this could have happened.

A gripping movie which highlights the resilience of community spirit above anything else.

3/5
