Movie review: 'Patriots Day' honors everyday heroes

Boston emerges strong during terrorists attack


Jacksonville, Fla. – "Patriots Day"

Based on the true story of the Boston Marathon bombings, you will leave the theater in tears for the courage of those that survived, those who protected the community and those who died. This film sharply depicts moments before, during and after that tragic day and the many heroes who emerged. 

After the terrorist bombings happen, Boston police Sgt. Tommy Saunders, played by Mark Wahlberg, is one of many law enforcement officers searching for the two terrorists.

This movie successfully, blends raw footage from that tragic day, with the film and it makes everything about the three- day ordeal come alive. This is a must-see movie.
