|Don't mess with Boston.|
Patriots Day Review – The winning combo of Director, Peter Berg and his muse, Mark Wahlberg offers us another film based on true story.
Year after year, the people of Boston look forward to their annual marathon
but on April 15, 2013, the world were shocked when two (2) bombs blasted
at the location of the event. The film captures the moment before, during and
after the effects of the blast. Mark Wahlberg plays Boston Police Department
Sergeant, Tommy Saunders bent on capturing the criminals responsible for the
destruction. With the help of the local and federal agency along with local
residents, the Boston PD work around the clock to keep their beloved city safe
while they hunt for the culprits.
Mark is the go to guy
to depict what true American hero looks like when their civilian comes under
attack. With his macho persona yet humorous side taking perfect time to shine,
he can still pull crowd to flock a movie with mere mention of his name in the
casting list. The other veterans such Kevin Bacon and John Goodman also deserve
credit for their real to reel roles. As heart breaking as it is to watch what
happened on the fateful day, one can’t imagine how the survivors felt living
thru an experience of that magnitude. The film also captures what was going
thru the mind of the ‘terrorist’ when they decide to go ahead with their evil
plan. What would motivate someone to commit such horrendous act? Nobody knows
until it happens and some sad soul becomes an innocent victim.
Sadly nothing brings
humans close than tragedies but hopefully one day we can all just live in peace
despite our differences.
|May the innocent souls rest in peace.|
|Boston PD always around to help those in need.|
|Mark does what he does best.|
