Patriots Day

On April 15, 2013 Boston, Massachusetts, Police Sgt, Tommy Saunders is pulling security duty on the annual Boston Marathon when the Tsarnaev brothers strike with their homemade bombs in an act of terrorism. In the resulting chaos as the wounded are cared for, Saunders and his comrades join forces with the FBI to get to the bottom of this attack. As the investigation continues, the Tsarnaev brothers realize that the authorities are close to identifying them and attempt to flee the city to continue their fanatical mayhem. To stop them, a police manhunt is performed that would have bloody confrontations and a massive dragnet shutting down the City of Boston to make sure there is no escape from the law.

April 15, 2013 was truly a watershed moment in the history of the United States of America. Senseless and shocking tragedy, which claimed the lives of four people and turned into the disabled dozens of others. The day called the "Day of patriots" fully justified its name. To ignore is so important for American history, the tragedy would be cool. The she was the basis for another biographical Director Peter Berg.

Frankly, expect from the tape Director Peter Berg I much more. Yeah and with such strong material, it would be possible safely remove truly powerful dramatic tape, which has collected all imaginable and unimaginable cinematic awards. However, to realize fully the potential of the project Peter Berg on my succeeded.

The main problem of the picture rests on absolutely uneven dynamics, in the installation and inhomogeneous Director Peter Berg. When scenes meant to move the viewer to a deeply hit live, interspersed meaningless inspirational speeches and points, and sometimes is the image of a romantic and unhurried pace of life of other people in other parts of the city. Not just not giving the impression that the unity of the residents of the city of Boston, which was really mentioned in the movie, but and ultimately resonating the overall impression of the seen.

Lacks the directorial skill and power Director Peter Berg and how to give a deep drama of individual scenes. Take the movie say Michael Bay, he would have found an excellent key touch of patriotism and a kind of drama. However, the film Director Peter Berg in a whole looks quite dry. It would seem that in the picture all held on their places. There is drama, there is a spectacle and all the rest, but all demonstrates quite impartially, not emotionally too sterile. Not allowing you to see picture that the soul, which for example was felt in the previous tape of the Director in the  Deepwater horizon.

As for the rest, say about the picture or frankly bad does not want it makes no sense. The plot quite accurately and recreates on screen a retrospective of what happened in April 2013 Boston events. Let sometimes by deceiving and bringing the history of the fiction writers, but overall — trying to create the screen is quite voluminous dramatic canvas. Where entering the active status of a good dozen characters, the creators of the film have tried to uncover each of them and its role in history with special predilection.

Michel Monahan, John. K. Simmons, Kevin bacon, John Goodman and many others played really well. Complementing each other with their game, not trying to win all the attention on himself personally. A little disappointed mark Wahlberg, which my frankly do not have been playing a role. Like played it at the forced. Hence, no wonder the image Wahlberg looked quite not confident. Completely dissolved in their role Melissa Benoist, which proved all the haters "Supergirl", which is not a mediocre actress. Temo melikidze Alex Woolf also looked quite confident and authentic the images of the brothers of the terrorists who terrorized the city in the 4 days.

Patriot day — it's a retrospective of the tragic events of 15 APR 2013. When several explosions thundered in Boston marathon attracted attention all over the world. Turned out quite not bad, but not the most outstanding and sterile film, which is clearly not enough emotional and dramatic depth, and also a kind of warmth. Hence, no wonder picture when you view tapes does not cause sympathy and does not cling. Although with such a material, would achieve more.

Peter Berg took as much — how much needed to make a film about events Boston 2013, however, to the cap Director is not have fallen, to continue their course in the major projects with well-staged action. Of the history "patriot's Day" viewer new learns almost nothing — has long been spread the world of frames cameras, videos, minute-by-minute playback of events and other.

The Director was able to dig deeper, for example to delve into the motivation of the suspects, to dig a bit for the physical borders of a free country, but it probably will be inspired some other film-enthusiast and at this stage, Peter Berg took off their best work. First, the Director, for those who the theme familiar with the term "Bostonians" very subtly, almost imperceptibly for a Western audience, conveyed the atmosphere of the nominal capital of New England.

Those who ever lived in the planet, fun with Dunkin Donuts Red Sox understand. "Dog" Boston Dynamics in MIT (Massachusetts Institute of technology), Chinese promoting your app, dialogs locals and police — all the small details of understanding Berg about what it removes a movie. And then the tragedy itself, and in the day the oldest on the planet, the Boston marathon — and many skeptics almost don't sound "Boston vs. Terrorists: Boston wins".

Overall, the picture conveys the complete authenticity of what is happening, so a few points to it give everyone who sees the eyes of the Director and witnesses of events of 2013. For with the exception only of the area of the final shootout with brothers police campus University of Massachusetts that do not agreed to withdraw the film on real sites.

As a result — "patriot's Day" very high quality directorial work, then even the big stars don't able to knock the enthusiasm of Berg to make the movie. More until the filming of this movie had some concerns about the success of the project, but the movie — I was pleasantly surprised.

Well-said the head of our main character. In my narrow understanding, the USA is like that COP in the performance of Mark Wahlberg. With far the magnitude of greatness that themselves and rewarded, those same mannerisms and clumsy jokes. It all a facade, they are vulnerable to the terror and senselessness of the attacks, we all, however, but they know how to blindly love their country, they are committed to their ideals, the patriots are not ask the right questions and they sleep great for night.

This year I will be very surprised if our "blond" the Academy is not will be awarded a statuette or two of this film. All in the best traditions of the annual praise by American critics. But would like note that would like never hurt if you forget about "Fences" and"Queen Katwa" — Denzel, viola and Lupita the big fellows; and about the Moonlight do not say anything, there are some excellent pictures in this year, the fight will be worthy of our attention!

Well, the film is not about it, though why and no — showed us again what is United may be Americans, they are true patriots, but they need to continue to fight in his racism, this rot still flowing in the blood of many, in the world. And terror spit on how you look, whether you a Muslim or a Jew, they will do their dirty work convinced that heaven will be opened unto them the door.

Can I recommend a movie to view? Rather Yes, than no. But most likely to re watching you will not return, and saw the TV, pretty sure that switch to another channel...
