About this movie

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on Thalys train #9364 bound for Paris—an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. “The 15:17 To Paris” follows the course of the friends’ lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board. The heroic trio is comprised of Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, who play themselves in the film.

What an unbelievable crappy movie. At times, the horrible acting is kind of funny. But when you consider that the actors are the actual real life heroes who prevented the terrorist attack, it's really sad that they are enacting all kinds of dramatized nonsense that didn't happen. No-one got shot that day. The two guys, who really are heroes, got stabbed, but Clint Eastwood had them make it into a circus. What a waste of time.

How do I get my money back?? That's how you'll feel at the end. It's based on a true story you've never seen on the news and it has the real people in it. Probably would be decent with real actors or even straight out of college actors but probably not. If it's a dry night and this is .99 rent it. Most likely you'll turn it off. Even for free it's a skip by

While the point of the movie is great and redemptive for boys who don't fit in, the anticipated action is missing. The 80 minutes of of background was way too long and unnecessary. If you want to see a nice story about friendship, this is for you.
