Film: Patriots Day (Drama)

Director: Peter Berg   
Year: 2016                   
Recommended: On the fence.

This is a true story that shows the atrocities of terrorism and its complete disregard for human life. Despite this evil, we can also find people willing to give their lives to help others. In this case, the public’s help and technology were beneficial to catch the bad guys.
The movie is entertaining, the acting is decent. However, it could have been better as the story is shocking (I remember I saw the development of these events in the news).
Two important messages to highlight:

  • Strong leaders are necessary to face moments of confusion
  • Love is always the cure. We cannot respond to violence with more violence.
