Pretty good verisimilitude of the Boston Marathon bombings by a couple of mus losers. Marky Mark doesn't fly in this, but it still makes me froth at the mouth to kill muslims.

Excellent movie about the Boston Marathon bombing and subsequent search for the bombers. The movie really humanizes the first responders as well as the victims of this savage act. Mark Walburg is simply great!

I thought I knew all the details of the Boston Marathon bombing. Turns out I didn't know much at all and what I didn't know enthralled me. The heroism of the Boston Police Department is something to see. They had to work in such chaos and under the most difficult conditions. I won't ruin the movie for you. It simply will inspire you that our first responders are so dedicated!

I felt that Peter Berg, Director did a great job in this reenactment of the Boston bombings and the lives of the people involved. So sad this happened to so many innocent people. I thought this was worth the watch.

This a fairly straight-forward account of the bombings events. It's not rah-rah America. It's not propagandist. It's not xenophobic. That said, it starts out well and ends well but drags a fair bit in the middle. Some lead characters are developed well, others wasted (Kevin Bacon, for one). Uplifting ending without going into corny or schmaltzy territory. Boston Strong indeed.

Can't go wrong with Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg (director) combination. These guys are dedicated to getting the story right based on whatever facts they have in hand and molding it into a moving experience. Nicely done.

i thought it would be super boring !!!! it wasn't !!!! interesting characters, well acted........ horrific violence

Better than I thought it would be. I didn't realize the true story was as gripping as this and from the footage I don't think the filmmakers stretched the truth that much.

Wahlberg is capable of better than this. Tried to make this into something more than what it was. He is starting to get worn out, overrated, and I only like him in comedies and The Gambler and Deepwater Horizon.

This is our fxckin' city. And nobody gonna dictate our freedom.
Stay strong! Two people took many days and weeks to plan out hate. But love responded in an instant. The bombs went off and wreaked incredible havoc, death, and destruction. But in that immediate instant afterward, people ran toward us. I first heard the term "Boston Strong" about two days into the investigation. And for me, it was emblematic of how tough the city and its residents can be.
I'm a true patriot. I really do believe in America. And I think Boston Strong, it just shows that we're gonna stand up and defend ourselves. We're not gonna take it and be beaten down. We're not gonna bother you, but don't come at us because we're gonna come back at ya.
When's the last time you saw crowds of people cheering the police on like that? That brought tears to my eyes. It really did. When we captured him, it was the best feeling in the world. .... It's almost like we just won the war.

What a sham!

your husband is gone. Forever. Sweetheart, you are now a widow. And have deserted your daughter, who will grow up knowing her father was a monster. ... He didn't even kiss you before he left... did he? Katie, for the sake of your daughter... are there any more bombs?
-For a Muslim woman, marriage is a lilting dance of duality... strength and submission. Beautiful, selfless, rapturous love of two masters, the carnal and the divine. The life a Muslim woman lives is a dangerous and difficult one. If she does not submit to her husband, there is a spot reserved for her in Hell. Yes. My husband kissed me before he left, and he will kiss me again when I see him in Heaven.
