In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. But when taking on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds winning may come at too high a price.
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. Written by

How the hell did this get a seven point five stars? God this film was cringe worthy. Wahlberg plays an annoying (Very annoying), childish, gobby cop, who mysteriously is looked up to by his superiors. The film was trying to convey the shock and emotion of it all and failed miserably, it just came across as cheesy and self-serving. Don't watch this rubbish, instead just imagine a scene, the aftermath of a devastating terrorist bomb attack. Now add a massive Stars and Stripes flag fluttering and filling most of the shot. Then in the foreground, a Boston cop in full uniform, sobbing, one hand on his heart and the other saluting ... then picture this for 2 hours, because that basically sums up this entire film.
