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.

  • 4 stars "I loved the depiction of heroic American manhood! I took my fourteen-year-old sons and my sixteen-year-old daughter, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves—though my sons say I “blubbered” too much at the touching scenes."
  • 5 stars "excellent...strong message....heroes playing themselves - neat concept.....well done clint"
  • 1 star "I had no idea what this movie was about or that the actors played themselves in the movie. Not to take away from there heroism but the movie itself was one of the most boring movies I have ever seen except for the last 10 minutes. I leaned over to my husband during the movie and said the acting in this is awful not knowing they were they actual heros playing themselves until the movie was over. I was surprised this was a Clint Eastwood movie. Painfully bad acting and extremely slow moving! But definitely Heros and should get credit for saving lives!!!! This would have made a better 1/2 hour documentary in my opinion!"
