An account of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis's actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists behind it.
Drama Thriller - This is a docudrama based on the Boston Marathon terrorist bombing,
and while it is for the most part a drama, it climaxes in some big
action sequences. Mark Wahlberg plays the most focal role, but this
is mostly an ensemble piece featuring other known actors such as J.K.
Simmons and Michelle Monaghan. Violence, language, and adult subject
matter make the film too intense for kids.

Roger EbertFull Review Above Average "Patriots Day" kicks into real gear once the investigation starts. The story is simplified into its urgent essence: Who did this? Where are they? Are there more bombs? Competent people focused on working a problem are fascinating to watch.
NY PostFull Review Excellent A great American movie about the greatness of ordinary Americans, "Patriots Day” combines an electrifying manhunt with the intimacy and feel for character writer-director Peter Berg showed in his brilliant TV series "Friday Night Lights.”
Rolling StoneFull Review Good ...a raw, riveting, emotionally wrenching docudrama... ...they honor the heroism of local law enforcement officers, first responders and everyday citizens whose teamwork came to define the phrase "Boston Strong."
Rex ReedFull Review Good ... a thriller briskly directed by Peter Berg and starring a dedicated cast headed by Mark Wahlberg. ...it does raise goose bumps with its accuracy, realism, and attention to detail.
