Gripping documentary focusing on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing (Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.) it's victims and their lives in the aftermath. Follows specific people and their experiences as they adapt and recover from their injuries. Includes behind-the-scenes details of the hunt for the bombers. Graphic photos of the bombing scene and resultant injuries. Comprehensive photodocumentary.
Too much time spent on the victims personal lives for my interests
I went into this with the expectation of getting an account of the lead-up to the bombing, the bombing it self, and the subsequent investigation. These things are covered a little. Those parts were well done.
However, the documentary spends the vast majority of the time talking about the injuries to a few specific victims. That was interesting, initially. But it dragged on too much, and started to feel repetitive. This wouldn't be as much of an issue if all of personal stuff was segmented to one continuous timespan. Then I could just fast forward. That was not easy to do here, because it frequently jumped back and forth between stories about injuries, and information about the events and investigation.
