Director: Peter Berg
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Monaghan

Inspired by the tragic events of the Boston Bombing in 2013, Patriots Day was a significant film which should move audiences.

Director Peter Berg had a tough job; to deliver the harrowing tales of the kettle bombs which were detonated during the Boston Marathon, taking three lives and leaving about two hundred and sixty individuals injured.

The audience was taken on the arduous journey of the victims and witnessed the investigation which took place as Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg), FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon) and Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman) raced against time to find the suspects and bring them to justice.

The action sequences were phenomenal, recreating the mayhem which took place on that fatal day. Despite facing much controversy, Berg embedded footage from the 2016 Marathon in order to create a more realistic atmosphere.

Footage from the bombings in 2013 was also included, yet much of this was unclear and blurry owing to the fast-paced hand-held camera movements, inadvertently adding authenticity to the film. Upon the conclusion, interview footage of victims revealed the permanent effects of the event, reducing the audience in tears as the traumatising consequences really hit home.

A significant message was threaded through the story line, commenting that in the face of adversity, communities united to help those who suffered, displaying the strength of Boston as one.
