The movie depicts the famous photograph of Carlos Arredondo helping Jeff Bauman with Carlos facing Jeff and his face hidden behind the cowboy hat. In reality, Carlos is looking ahead and his face is clearly shown. See more »
Stronger is the inspiring real life story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become a symbol of hope after surviving the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Like with "Patriot's Day" Stronger is a missed call from start to finish since except the fact that it's kinda bland it's also boring something that a film of this kind and an important message that it tries to tell shouldn't be. Jake Gyllenhaal's perfomance was alright for the most part but the rest of the cast and the perfomances in general were dull, especially the romance and some of the jokes that were in the film were completely not needed to be in there. Also i don't get it why everyone named him a "hero" since he wasn't that like ever in the entire film, he was just a normal pal that liked videogames and had an obsession with this girl just that and nothing more but they tried to make the film something more than it was and for that i found it boring and bland. (4/10)
