Storyline

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.

Trivia

Normally, a player dropping the "F-Bomb" on live television would generate a fine and penalty from the FCC. Two days after the April 20, 2013 speech, the FCC announced that there would be no punishment for the speech. It's the only time the FCC has declined to punish that type of incidents. At the time, the FCC commissioner was Julius Genachowski, a Boston native. See more »

It was OK, and too many reviewers are hysterical.
23 March 2018 | by George TaylorSee all my reviews

So some reviewers found this Islamaphobic and Anti-Islam. Are you aware that the two bombers were Islamic? So that eliminates your silly argument. As for the movie itself, it was just OK. I find Wahlberg barely tolerable at best, and the rest of the cast just seemed to wander around. The hunting of the terrorists was done decently, but overall, if I never see this again, I'd be ok with that.
