Respect, dignity, and truth.

Patriots Day is meant to honor the people and the city of Boston. Besides being a love letter to his hometown, Mark Wahlberg also gives us a solid performance in an exciting movie.

Patriots Day is a surprisingly steady retelling of a tragic event.
March 6, 2019
It works well enough, but offers few surprises.

Patriots Day is not without its flaws, but considering the events depicted took place not even four years ago, Berg, Wahlberg and the rest have done this story as much justice as possible.
February 13, 2019
Worthy though the film is in reproducing the events, its protagonists deserved to be better served.

This may not the film we need right now, but perhaps the only one we deserve.

Berg's film packs a punch with its extravagantly directed action and gruelling tension, but it often feels empty as it fails to fully grasp its subject matter in the awkwardly written screenplay.
August 30, 2018
Second juggernaut knockout of a film that captures the human American spirit that will bring out the Patriot in you.
August 24, 2018
Wahlberg's entirely suited for the role of a law enforcement official rough around the edges with a proud, caring heart, a role he's done before, and he's in his own home turf.

The audience's knowledge is a challenge for a film like this one, but "Patriots Day" passes the test swimmingly. It's mostly a credit to the movie that despite the fact that we know what's coming, we're still shocked when it happens.

In telling the story as one of a community pulling together in the face of hatred and violence, Berg delivers a more nuanced take on terrorism and its impact than one might have expected from the helmer of the gung-ho Battleship.

This is a worthy tribute to the folks in Boston who helped solve the case, and well worth watching.

It was really well done it was a heavy movie. Mark Wahlberg was great the characters were great -- so great in fact it's weird to call them characters because they are based on real people so the people were great and it does a lot of justice.

[Patriots Day] is gripping and intense, with the entire cast doing an ace job of bringing humanity to a horrific event.

... the nationalism that prevails on Patriot's Day dulls its premise, but prevails thanks to the mixture of darkness and the importance of fraternal union in difficult times. [Full review in Spanish]

The film has a cast that certainly testifies to the effort behind the production. [Full review in Spanish]
December 5, 2017
It shows that when society is knocked down, it unites. That single important theme is never lost throughout the duration of the film, and for that (along with some terrific performances and realistic look at the bombings), the movie is a success.
November 20, 2017
Patriots Day takes us behind the scenes of the week that followed the Boston bombing in April 2013.
November 5, 2017
Despite the film simply ticking the boxes with the dramatics, its action sequences are some of the most intense and harrowing seen this year.
