It is April 13th, 2013 and the marathon in Boston is about to take place for the annual Patriots Day celebration.

Review and Rating
Patriots Day is a great action thriller with loads of drama. Once again Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg team up to bring another tragic true story to the big screen without disappointing. These two teamed up and brought you Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor, and are at it again with this new thriller. I would rate this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. I felt they told the story well, expressed true emotion without deviating from the true story that happened. Once the events start to unfold, the movie does not slow down. Berg does a great job, like in his other films, to put you right in the action as if you were there.
I remember when this tragedy happened. Makes me think back at all the tragic events that I have been able to witness on television during my life time. I felt the movie stayed true to the tragedy without sacrificing and adding a bunch of Hollywood magic to make the film unbelievable. Berg and Wahlberg seem to make a great team.
