Wahlberg was fun to watch as usual. Lots of intriguing characters and a good plot based on actual events. Even though you know what is going to happen the movie still surprises you. — Mexican_Black_Bear

Tragiclly Beautiful
★★★★★
An event that will go down in history. Not for the terristic events, but for the sheer fact that in chaos, the love and care that people have for one another endure and fight back. What a beautiful rendition of true events. Well done. — mpollock

Incredible, entertaining, and accurate
★★★★★
I moved to Boston one week after these tragic events. I experienced first hand how close knit the people of Boston are. Visiting the makeshift memorial in Copely Square showed me the reoslve the people of Boston have for each other and the lives touched by this tragedy. Watch this movie. It's absolutely fantastic and is an exciting rush from start to finish. This movie captured all of the real facts that I heard from friends that worked in downtown Boston as well as the local news which, I'm sure, continued covering the story even when I got to Boston one week after the tragic event. Also watch the iTunes Extra content. There are several small featurettes that not only go over how the movie was made but also interviews with the real people that were portrayed. — Trafalgar42

Good movie, way too intense
★★★★★
I feel like this movie does a good job of telling the story, but it wasn't as intense as it is portrayed in the film. I live in the suburbs of Boston, near Watertown, and yes it was very scary and frightening. Just not as much as the movie shows it to be. — thespandexreporter

heck yeah

Fantastic movie!!! Emotionally riveting. Berg and Wahlberg nailed the emotion, compassion, patriotism, camaraderie, and hope. There is no way you won't like this movie. — ToeUpFmThFloUp

Boring
★★★★★
This event was historic and tragic, but rehashing the events as a movie doesn't work for me. I wish I had rented the movie because one viewing is more than enough. — Jason504

Missing pieces
★★★★
Missing pieces to the story maybe for legal reasons i was expecting more mark is always good. The producing could've been a bit better. It was ok would give 3 stars but with mark in it he's worth the extra star — Anygivensunday3

Fantastic movie!!
★★★★★
Fantastic from start to finish. The actors, producers and director did an amazing job. — Lmdx0

Shows the courage of the men in blue that day
★★★★★
This movie made me remember the countless sactifices the men in blue make to make our lives better. A lot of people think that people in the military are the ones that fight for our freedom, but movies like this make you remember how important our officers are — dkfkdkfkdfd

War on terror
★★★★★
This movie is a memorial and a reminder. Superb and graphic. Special thanks to Fox News for reporting all of the facts even what this movie omitted. — Adderall Diaries

Buena movie
★★★★★
Sad, but well maid movie. I am very saddened to know there are heartless people out there. God be with those families who lost love ones. — Catracho011

Touching & Amazing
★★★★★
To the New Yorker who wrote the review as "blandly reductive" and "unfortunate".. Are you out of your minds? This movie was well produced and well executed. The movie followed the events that took place and was absolutely in no way, from the heroes of the events, to the actors, to production to the execution a "blandly reductive" or "unfortunate" movie. This movie gets 5 stars from this patriot and world traveler. — LotusGt

Bost Bombing Patriots Day
★★★★★
Nice movie and hurtfull movie.The Muslim terrorist shot be tortured and killed but American are good enough to shoot them on the spot.But I am happy one Muslim terrorist captured alive.Good news.Hahahahaha — MariamLovejoy

excellent film well done
★★★★★
We rented Patriots' Day last night - I honestly didn't expect much and I was pleasantly surprised. It gave me insight into the Boston Marathon bombings and I remembered how shocked and sad I felt when the event occurred. There were many white knuckle moments, especially the car jacking of Dun Meng and the Watertown shoot out that was realistically chaotic and not Hollywood BS - and the film successfully captured how vulnerable the City was for those 4 days. What was most impressive was the positive message from the real-life victims at the end - the belief that love and good prevails and that people are basically good. — nyctelecaster

Marky Marky Saves the day.
★★★★
Pure vanity project that exploits those killed and the injured on that horrible day. Marky Marky Stars as a made up cop is is luckily all over the multiple cities in multiple precincts at just the right time to solve the bombing and be the hero of Boston. — cinten99

Great movie
★★★★★
Loved this movie. Held true to the actual story. The details that occurred that day were so carefully included. Very respectfully written. The suspense was intense. — SummerU11

Amazing Movie
★★★★★
An amazing movie about what happened on the day of the Boston Bombings. This movie was one of my favorite movies because of how well it told the story and showed how everyone stayed united throughout that time. — Waffle Man 12

Garbage
★★★★
Marky Mark is the same guy in every movie. Peter Berg has rehashed this character in three movies. Lone survivor great story, Deepwater Horizon and Patriot. No thanks no need to waste my time or money. — Spaceman 2012

BEST MOVIE that brings two city's and a country together
★★★★★
This is by far the best movie I have ever watched. I love how the detail are right on point. I can't say how great this is but when I turn 21 I want to place a application into the Boston PD. That city is so united I believe it is one of the best cities in the world. — Ethan Merica

Better than Deep Horizon
★★★★
Good movie better than I expected after watching Deep Horizon I thought maybe another movie that would lose my interest midway through but it kept my full attention till the end. Very good movie one of the better movies I've seen the past year. Only thing I didn't like was the lack of reason why they set the bombs off. It woulda made the movie better even though most probably know this it still shoulda been included imo. — ArtogantBastard

I remember this day.
★★★★★
I personally live in the Boston area and this depicts the real event perfectly. It really hit me in the feels. — StoweKid

Amazing
★★★★★
This movie is absolutely incredible. I am from boston and it was amazing. — Hgyijhgghn

Good movie, but misses the Cowboy Hat Man
★★★★
I mean seriously, this dude, Carlos Arredondo helped so many victims, and is totally erased from the story, as if he never was there. — korniszon

BOSTON STRONG..!
★★★★★
Good movie, all together — Jeff69abreu

A stirring and emotional depiction
★★★★★
The film Patriots day is an emotional docudrama that depicts the Boston Marathon Bombing and the ensuing manhunt. The film effectively connects the audience to the depravity of the situation. One of the best films of the year. A must see. As a native of New England, and someone who was at the marathon, the film meant a great deal to me. Patriots Day does a phenomenal job of showing the human cost of the day, and depicts a city that was brought together by tragedy. The film depicts the actual events in Boston, true to all reports and accounts. Director Peter Berg effectively utilizes actual surveillance footage to blend the real with the reenacted. These qualities combine for a surreal and accurate depiction of the incident. — -TheNuKe-
