Observations

A mixed bag.


Patriots Day tells the story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists responsible.

From what I’ve read, Patriot’s Day was meant to be an apparent surprise contender for the Oscars and it does have the source material for it but that doesn’t mean that it was a success in doing so. 315 more words
