It tells the real-life story of Jeff Bauman, a living symbol of Boston Marathon Bombing. Jeff works at Walmart and he promised his old girlfriend who is going to participate in a marathon that he will be in the finishing line to support her.
Patriots Day also tells the story of Boston Marathon Bombing which discusses the investigation procedures of the bombing and the manhunt. Meanwhile, Stronger confer a different perspective that is the mental state of the survivors. Gyllenhaal once again puts forward an energetic performance as Bauman. There are some characters in the movie that still stucks in my head and their emotional smile is enough to remind their faces. Overall, it's a movie that gets stronger when Gyllenhaal's face comes on the screen and a genuine tribute to actual heroes.
Verdict : Great
