Blaine’s Box Office: Patriots Day

Patriots Day, the film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the manhunt that followed, opens in theaters this weekend. The movie, based on a book, stars Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon and more.

What this movie does right is that it stands as a compelling tribute to the victims of the bombing, the heroes that emerged and the people of Boston, without going all "Hollywood". It is tasteful, yet compelling. And highly recommended.

I give Patriots Day 4 out of 5 Blaines.
