Patriots Day (2016)



Patriots Day didn't start off in the best of ways. It actually came across almost like a TV movie than a theatrical release. Not sure what it was about the first 20 minutes or so that made it feel this way. Maybe it was the amount of "random characters" or just the editing, Anyway, the movie really takes off after the bombing in a Cat and Mouse detective push. We know how it ends and yet, this Thriller still delivers in a very visceral way. And all those "random characters" come back to play a big part of the movie as the pieces start coming together. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the story...but I don't remember much of  Dun Meng. I knew about the carjacking, but I can't recall hearing anything about his escape. But the one thing that I'm trying to recall was the shoot out, which I do remember, just not the amount of pipe-bombs that were being thrown. Not sure if this happened as depicted in the film or they took liberties to up the ante for a more explosive conclusion to the whole ordeal. Anyway, this is definitely worth a Rent. 4 Stars out of 5. Also, I had no idea that Melissa Benoist was in this. Just weird seeing Supergirl in this in the role she plays. With the movie completed...I found the Epilogue with the real survivors to be the absolute best part of the movie....to hear their stories firsthand. It was very moving.
