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.

Did You Know?


The University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth would not allow filming on its campus. See more »


The first Boston Marathon bomb was set off at 2:49:43, on the race clock at the finish line read 04:09:43. However in the movie, when the first bomb was set off, the clock at the finish line read 02:59:30. meaning they put the time of day which it happened (which was also wrong) but it should have showed the race time. which is 04:09:43. (seen in the trailer.) See more »

Great film
27 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie as one of Bostonians. This movie does not have over-the-top action sequences or over-acting. It just tells story as it happened and I really liked that. Yes, there are some non-existing characters and elements, but I think those make movie progression little smoother.

I highly recommend this movie.
