Mark Wahlberg is just there cos the movie needs a lead actor. The real hero is the collective group of people that fought against this terrorism.
”The moment we label this terrorism, everything changes. It’s not about Boston anymore, it’s not a local investigation. It’s Wolf Blitzer, it’s stock markets, it’s politicians, knee-jerk reactions, anti-Muslim backlash. And what if we’re wrong?” – DesLauries
Not many movies with terrorism as storyline say these words out openly and that’s one of the best things about Patriots Day. A great movie about the true events of Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013.
