Synopsis

Directed by Clint Eastwood, this is the story of the 2015 Thalys train attack, when three American friends — Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler and Alek Skarlatos — who play themselves, discovered a terrorist armed with an AKM assault rifle and a box cutter was attacking people on board the moving train they were on, which was en route to Paris.

The three men, two of whom were off-duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces, realized something was up when a passenger ran past them in a panic. Calmly walking in the same direction just moments afterwards was a terrorist carrying a gun and other weapons. The three men decided immediately to jump in to stop the gunman. This is their story.

Based on the autobiography The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes by Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Jeffrey E. Stern.

  • 5 stars "It was a remarkable story. I liked that the 3 actors played themselves --they were authentic and did a better job of playing themselves (as Clint encouraged them to be), rather than using professional actors. And glad to see that the French acknowledged and honored them so highly. How fortunate these brave Americans were on that train."
  • 1 star "Thought this movie would be better than what it was. Very slow moving and boring until the end. Eastwood usually comes up with good movies, but this one is dissapointing."
  • 5 stars "An audacious movie despite its flaws."
