‘Patriot’s Day’ tells the narrative of this tragedy the right way
I remember very little of the Boston Marathon bombing. I think I was in school at the time, but I didn’t pay much attention to it. It wasn’t until I saw Patriot’s Day that I really learned about this horrible tragedy. Now people have a chance to own it on Blu-Ray. I was able to get a review copy and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Patriot’s Day here:
Based upon the dramatic real-life manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers, this powerful action-thriller follows Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) as he joins brave survivors, first responders, and investigators in a race against time to find the bombers before they strike again.
I really enjoyed watching Patriot’s Day on Blu-Ray. So much work was put in to tell this story the right way, and it really shows. The cast is wonderful, each one plays their character perfectly. Many of them had the chance to meet the person they were playing, and it is clear this really helped their performance. The score is beautiful, with so many songs setting the tone of the event perfectly. The special features on here are amazing. ‘The Real Patriots: The Local Heroes Stories’ gives detailed accounts of the event from those who were a part of it and goes into great detail how this film was brought to life. ‘The Cast Remembers’ has the cast recounting where they were when it happened and what they thought of it.
