PATRIOTS DAY (Theatrical Release USA 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Patriots Day—not a movie that one gets to see every day—works because of its emotional sense, excellent acting, and good portrayal of story. It’s a story of injustice done and good people who work to right that injustice.  Great work for Director Peter Berg (The Kingdom and Lone Survivor) for using very good directing skills to move this film along so well. Great work for Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, and Kevin Bacon for delivering a believable and realistic story filled with heart, suspense, and action. Good timing of scenes and events.

Storyline

The manhunt for the persons responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing.

Yes. A needed-to-be-made movie aptly captures the human spirit and ingenuity to take down evil.
