On the last day of his suspension--as Massachusetts prepares for the demanding annual Boston Marathon--reluctantly, the injured Boston police sergeant, Tommy Saunders, arrives at the bustling with people finish line, on April 15, 2013. Amid enthusiastic but unsuspecting spectators, the terrorist Tsarnaev brothers plant two lethal home-made pressure-cooker bombs, and at the height of the event, they remotely set them off, killing three people, and maiming 264 civilians. Now--during the following four days, and with the city plunged into chaos--a relentless area-wide manhunt begins, as the authorities, the F.B.I., and Tommy's comrades-in-arms comb the town to track down the murderers. Will the Bostonians let hate stain Patriots' Day?

The most effective aspect of this film was how the story was told. As the movie went on, I was left wondering "Is there a way to fix this?" And at the end of the movie, I still had to figure out that I didn't like the ending. But, that is not to say that this movie was bad. There were some amazing moments and some of the actors were really good. This is definitely worth a watch if you are a fan of the TV show.

This movie is a movie, it's one of those movies you will remember forever. There's no better way to describe this movie than to say it is the story of 9/11. It is a powerful movie that can make you feel everything, especially the feelings of a patriot. The acting in this movie was superb. The story is a great one and the emotions are the best I have ever experienced. A must watch for patriots everywhere. Definitely worth the time. 9/10

From beginning to end this is an incredibly well made film. I'm a fan of the original since I was a kid and thought it was a very enjoyable film. In retrospect, it's a shame that this was in theaters instead of being released on DVD so that this film could have had the attention it deserved. This is a very well done film that doesn't try to be anything more than what it is: a solid action thriller. I loved the fact that this film was shot in New Orleans. I love New Orleans as much as the next person but this film brought it to life. Tom Sizemore did a great job of portraying the very down to earth spirit that Jimmy Buffett brings to the stage. I also really liked the fact that this film was a family oriented film. There were several sequences that reminded me of my own family and the overall feel of the film was very similar to how I would be experiencing the stage in my own home. I thought the ending was a little rushed but overall, this was an amazing film.

I am not a big fan of Martin Sheen or Al Pacino, but I really liked this film. I thought the story line was good and the ending was outstanding. The movie is very good in so many ways, the characters are very interesting, the acting is very good, and the special effects are very good. The fact that the characters are human is just incredible, as we are left wondering what really happened. The acting of both of these actors is incredible, it shows the desperation that the main character feels. In fact, the film is very realistic. We know that the main character will go to prison, but we are left with the question, why? And who are the other characters? Where are they from, what is their background, and what is their past? I think this is an excellent film, that has great special effects, but great acting. It has a good message, and it is one that will touch many hearts. I think the movie is worth watching.

I've been waiting for this film for quite some time, and it finally came. I was expecting this film to be based on the actual events and such, but instead it is based on a novel of the same name. I never read the book, so I didn't know what I was going to get, but it was pretty cool. As with most movies of this type, the main characters are a bit underdeveloped, and the action is so low budget, it looks really bad. The action scenes are quite well done though. The story was really good, with good humor, good action, and good development of the characters. I recommend this movie, it is a great movie for a Friday night or something.

Burt Reynolds had such a great career, and he really had a lot of fun playing the ragged, out-of-his-luck lawyer named Bobby Riggs. Now he's aging and turning 70, and he's well aware of that. He is clearly still enjoying it. He plays a 70-year-old man, and he just really doesn't get to the point anymore. It's really not that he wants to get older, but he just doesn't feel like there is anything left for him. That, coupled with his having to deal with his estranged wife, is something he has to deal with, but not because of a sudden urge to get it on with his wife. He's having to deal with her and Bobby's daughter, and his son-in-law, who he had a 40-year affair with and is trying to forget. Bobby Riggs is an amazing movie, which I am glad to say was directed by Frank Oz. This movie is all about the main character, and that's what is so great about it. There is so much going on, and it's hard to keep up with. Reynolds gives a great performance. He really has this whole persona that he plays with, and it's so cool. It's a movie that has a lot of fun to it, and is just so well done, but it's also a film about one man's battle against time. It's a real battle, and it's really the best of times and the worst of times. I don't want to give too much away, but I'm sure you know the ending. It's really a really good movie, and it has a lot of fun to it.

I have to say I was skeptical at first but it turns out it was a great movie and I actually enjoyed it. It is a good action movie and I can understand how people are put off by it. The movie is set in Boston, Massachusetts and shows the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing. I thought the acting was excellent and the cast was very well chosen. There was no annoying actors that were annoying the whole time. I thought the acting was very realistic and believable and it was really touching and realistic. The movie was very entertaining and definitely a movie to watch.

Tom Hardy is a real trooper in this role. Even though he had to say, "No!" to some things in the script, Hardy makes it all believable and so does the rest of the cast. I don't think I've ever seen such a convincing baddie in my life. The cinematography is superb and the story line is also very original. I'm not saying this movie is great. But it's worth your time.

This is a great movie about Patriots Day. It is a little slow at the beginning, but it picks up quickly and has a great ending. The acting is great, with Tom Sizemore, Michael C. Hall and Michael Gambon all showing great performances. It is a little slow at the beginning, but once the story begins it picks up fast and the story is a lot more intense than the first one. I think that this is a great movie that you should watch.

There is no comparison between the two. The story line is very similar to James Bond's. The story line is the action is the bomb. The characters are just as memorable as Bond's. The actors in this movie did a great job. Tom Sizemore and Walton Goggins were especially good. The only problem I have with this movie is the overly long time that it took to get to the end. But other than that, I would recommend this movie to anyone.

For me, The Patriot is a great film. While many people who have reviewed it have raved about the movie's violence, I have to disagree. It is not as bloody as I expected, but it is also not as graphic as some people have made it out to be. The main thing I enjoyed about The Patriot is how the film did not try to take itself too seriously. I would love to see the movie with a more serious message in it, because at the end of the day, the film is about patriotism and I think the writers could have done better by using this fact to build up the characters and plot. Overall, I think that The Patriot is a great movie with some great performances. It is a great movie and if you have not seen it yet, go rent it.

With 'JFK', this is another excellent movie by Mark Boal. This time he not only takes on the task of portraying the late President John F. Kennedy, but also a mother and daughter who get separated during a hurricane, and the civil rights movement that follows the event. The film is just about as accurate as it can get, and the character of Martin Luther King Jr. who was in fact assassinated in 1968, was portrayed perfectly. This film has been criticized by some for it's depiction of the 1960's as a black and white time, and others for its ending. Personally, I think that the ending could have been more appropriate. It seems that a certain certain anti-war sentiment lingered in the minds of many people throughout the 1960's. It is too bad that this movie didn't have a more positive ending, because this film would have been much more relevant to the viewers who have no experience with the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's.

It is amazing how much change the world can endure, and how many people do not know how to take care of their own world. This is a very emotional movie. When you have a great event like that happening, it is very hard to not to be in shock, because you are used to seeing things happen in movies, and movies make you feel this way. The world is in turmoil right now, and that is exactly what is happening in Boston. The movie does not rely on politics to tell its story, it is also very poignant, and brings some really touching moments. It is an inspirational movie, it shows that no matter how strong a country is, it still can fall, and will fall if people do not take care of their own world. It is a movie that teaches you that you should be prepared to go to war, and that is why this movie is so effective. People do not realize how much of a problem this world has, and we should not use our history to be arrogant. We should learn from the mistakes of the past, and how to use our power to improve the world, instead of always relying on ourselves, and being afraid to stand up for what we believe in. The people in this movie should be thankful for all the people that were not killed, and everyone who did not make it out alive. The world needs more heroes.

If there was a movie to get everybody into a murderous rage it would be 'The Patriot' based on a true story about one man who lived in the area around Boston. I enjoyed the film and thought it was good entertainment, and had me cheering for the Boston Police. The people in the crowd cheering when the police finally went after that terrorist were the most interesting. This movie will give you the feeling of the Boston police being under the same threat. Of course the acting was bad, but I thought it was all fairly well done. I did not like the ending though, but I guess that was because I am a huge fan of Michael Mann.

This is an awesome movie, I would not be surprised if it gets an Oscar nomination. I am sure that if the Academy is really, really smart, they will take note of this movie and give it a second look. The acting was great, you could tell the actors were really enjoying their roles and really let themselves be taken seriously. I also really enjoyed the movie, it was really entertaining and had a lot of suspense and drama. I am not a big fan of the Patriots but I enjoyed this movie so much that I wanted to see it again. You can tell that this was a real "hunt" and the people were really hunting each other. I would have liked to see more of the Patriots and their men but other than that, I would have loved to see more of the Patriots and the battle scenes. There were a lot of good action scenes and you really get a sense of what it was like to be a Patriot and what the men were doing to try and survive. I really hope the Patriots win the game and they do not lose! This is a movie I would love to see again and I really hope they win the game. I would love to see how the Patriots and the Patriots' men would deal with the FBI and the Justice Department. I was really impressed with this movie and I hope that other people will see this movie and enjoy it as much as I did.

At the moment, The Post has never had a "makeover" and so the previous changes were more than excusable. The fact that it was made with so much emphasis on all the old parts and glossed over what was new, I just find quite sad. Now, when we're in a moment where we look to the new, I like to have the information readily available to the viewer. This movie was made for this reason and it was made to the mark. I'm not a fan of this "emperor has no clothes" approach, but in this case it worked quite well. Even the trailers, which would try to show some over-the-top action or some kind of premonition or whatever, were avoided. The movie does play out in a way that could be considered a perfect representation of events. Like I said, it's the same old thing, but it's different. In addition, there were certain aspects that the trailer did not do justice to, like the fact that the images of the "bad guys" were somewhat exaggerated, or the fact that the dialogue was not all that detailed. I don't want to go into detail, but they were elements that the movie was missing. In a sense, they tried to "sell out" by being overly patriotic and actually not enough with that. But, these are the small negatives and I'm not going to go into detail. I like to let the viewer decide what they think and then if I was asked to describe a film I would say that I enjoy it. So, I've enjoyed this film for the most part and can't think of any negative thing. The only reason I didn't give it a ten is because the plot could have been tighter and more well defined. I don't know if it was the director or a crew member, but it was just a bit long and maybe I would have been able to appreciate it better had it been shorter. Still, I did not think that the actors/actresses were bad. I would have to say that they were excellent. In particular, I enjoyed Ryan Phillippe, I liked the music, the acting and especially Sean Penn who I haven't seen in a while. All in all, it's a good movie that's worth the time spent to see it.

This is an interesting movie that tells the story of a group of men who are being recruited by the FBI and their task is to find and assassinate a man named Carlos. It is told through flashbacks of the events leading up to this, as well as the time when Carlos was killed. It is very good to see Tom Cruise in a role that is not his normal action hero stuff, and in this movie he gets a chance to show his skill as a dramatic actor. The story itself is told through flashbacks and there are moments that are quite funny. There is a scene where the FBI agent David Field (Michael Wincott) tells Tom Cruise about his friend Ronny, a man who played a role in the Vietnam war. Field had been killed in action and his body was never found. Ronny was recruited by the FBI to find the real killer, but it is a dangerous game and Ronny ends up killing a man named Carlos who was involved in his friend's death. Tom Cruise does a great job at showing his character's emotion, it is really good to see him show this emotion in a role where he is supposed to be the hero. Overall, this movie is definitely worth watching.

THE QUARTERLY IS a rather good movie. While it is perhaps a little slow at times, I thought it was a great depiction of the true story of the Boston Massacre. There was also some excellent acting by a group of veterans of the first Gulf War. (William H. Macy, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, and Patricia Clarkson). Although I would not consider this a must-see movie, it was a solid movie that was quite entertaining. I rate it 8/10.

I have seen this movie in 3 different theaters and it was wonderful! I was really looking forward to it, it had some good actors and it was a great plot and storyline. It was a good movie but I felt it was a little too long and not sure if they did the movie right because it was about 3/4 of the way done. The movie did not really explain anything really, they just threw in a bunch of things that would make you think they did explain them but it was not the case. I would not say this movie is a 5.5 but I would say it is definitely a 7.5 but there are other things that just don't really hold up. They definitely have a great cast and I believe they were really looking for a good movie but it was a little too long.

I must say that I am surprised at the amount of hate this film got. I am not a fan of either Michael Bay or Oliver Stone. I am not one of the people who think that this is a great film and Stone is just making a big stink on it. This is a great film and I have seen it twice and I will see it again. There were some great things in this film. It was a great story, and the cast was great. I liked this film. It is not perfect but it is a good film. I also liked the fact that the Germans were just bad guys. This film is worth seeing, but you should see the first one first. I recommend this film to everyone.

When I was a teenager, I had no desire to see the first film in the franchise, I had only seen "The Fugitive" a couple of years before. So I started this film as soon as I could, with high hopes. I went to the theater with high expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised. This film is one of those movies that is just too good to be real. When I first saw it, I was moved to tears by the scenes, and when I saw the second film, I still thought that it was the best of the franchise. This film made me rethink the entire franchise. This film is fantastic, it's as good as any of the previous films, the best part is that it makes you feel like a huge action fan again. Every scene is unique and really good. The plot is so good, that I think the movie doesn't even need to have an ending. I don't think it needs a villain, the movie makes it perfectly clear. I love the scenes, I love the acting, the music, the photography, everything in this movie is just great. This is one of the best movies I've seen in years, I think it should have won Best Picture.

This is a highly suspenseful movie, it has plenty of suspense. I loved the whole point of this movie, it was not about the city, it was about the other people in the city, and how it affected them. It had me, on the edge of my seat. The scenes in Boston were not one dimensional, they showed a little of everything. The acting was solid, the actors did a great job with their characters. The camera work was amazing, the film was very detailed, it looked very real, and I was on the edge of my seat throughout. It was suspenseful, but I do think this movie is overrated. I don't think that it is a masterpiece, but it is a good film, a great movie. I recommend this film to anyone who loves the thrill of being on the edge of your seat, and wanting to see how it affects the other characters.
