Patriots Day

Continuity mistake: When the police are moving in to arrest Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the shot shows an FBI SWAT officer grabbing him. But in the next cut, the officer changes to a Boston Police Officer while changing back to a FBI Officer in the following shot.

Continuity mistake: When Mark Wahlberg approaches the boat, an officer following behind him pulls out his pistol from his holster. But in the next shot, the officer holsters a radio which has suddenly appeared in his hand, and pulls out his pistol again. (01:52:40)

Other mistake: In the Watertown police shootout scene, a resident tosses a sledgehammer to the police to help them in the fight. Right when the resident throws the sledgehammer from their front door, many frames are entirely missing from the movie for some reason, which results in an awkward skip. This is seen in all cuts of the film (Blu-Ray, Digital, etc).

Katherine Russell: For a Muslim woman, marriage is a lilting dance of duality, strength and submission. Beautiful, selfless, rapturous love of two masters, the carnal and the divine. The life a Muslim woman lives is a dangerous and difficult one. If she does not submit to her husband, there is a spot reserved for her in Hell. Yes. My husband kissed me before he left, and he will kiss me again when I see him in Heaven. And you can't prove anything.

Dun Meng: Go catch those motherfuckers.

Police Officer: They got fucking bombs, Sarge. They're shooting at us.
Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese: Yeah, no shit.

More quotes from Patriots Day

Question: How did they work out Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were the bombers?

Answer: The Tsarnaev brothers were telegraphing their complicity in the bombings by their crimes as they were trying to escape Boston police, such as shooting the campus cop, carjackings, and throwing pipe bombs at the cops during curfew and a dragnet/door-to-door search in the area. Shootouts and throwing bombs at law enforcement officers after a deadly bombing would attract the attention of local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.

Question: Were the bombers members of a terrorist organization?

Answer: They were not members of any terrorist group. They taught themselves how to build bombs with internet research and acted alone.
