Democrats are busy dissing president-elect Donald Trump, boycotting the inauguration and making noise. Trump has been busy charting his battle plan, but he might pick up some support and encouragement from a glance at Patriot's Day, now in theatres. Like millions of others, he already knows the story.
The annual Boston Marathon hosts thousands of athletes and spectators from around the world. In 2013, Muslim terrorists Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who hail from Chechnya, decided to see how many infidels they could kill by bombing the event.
Patriot's Day does a good job recreating the Marathon, the bombing, and the aftermath. The carnage surpasses the famous rail yard scene in Gone With the Wind for detail, and the message is clear: terrorist bombs kill innocent people and inflict huge human suffering. Viewers also get a sense of how political correctness hinders the response.
