Peter Berg strikes again, with a great, new endeavor “Patriots day”! In this new film, Peter Berg (dir.: “Hancock”) put togwther an amazing film, which combines such talents as John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, Mark Walhberg, J.K. Simmons, and Michelle Monaghan into melting pot thriller about the Boston Marathon bombings.

One of the things I appreciated about this movie was that, even though it could have been turned into some ridiculous, over the top action film, it wasn’t. Instead the director chose to focus on the event itself and all of the subsequent investigation in a far less sensationalistic fashion. Yes, we had car chases and fire fights, explosions and fisticuffs, but it definitely was no Michael Bay film, and I mean that in a positive way!

This film focused on the people of the Boston community, the fire fighters, EMT’s, doctors, police, and civilians. We are shown in the film how Boston came together to try and bring these criminals to justice. We see the different agencies struggling to get this situation locked down, to calm the people, save as many lives they could, and apprehend these criminals as quickly as possible.

I felt that in spite of Mark Walhberg getting just a little too much airtime, there were plenty of gripping, tragic, heartbreaking moments in this film which were shared within the cast to make this a very human film. One that touches the emotions in many different levels.

I felt that “Patriot Games” was, and is, poignant film with a focus on community.

We are shown the journey of several people in the investigation as well as the journey of the assailants. Admittedly it was particularly frustrating to see how this group of assailants had taken advantage of the American job market, housing, and shopping only to turn it around and throw it back in our faces by committing this horrible act.

In the end we see through filmmaking, as well as real life images, how everything came together and how Boston came together as a community to work through this horrible event.
