Review: Patriot's Day (2016)

RATING: 8/10

In 2013, two home-made pressure-cooker bombs go off at the most-attended marathon in the United States. This film follows the Boston police department as they team up with the FBI in a game of cat-and-mouse with two ruthless home-grown terrorists. 474 more words
