About the 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Eastwood terrorist thriller casts three American heroes to play themselves. They had never acted before and as far as I'm concerned their record is clean, leaving the gripping, complex movie that might have been frustratingly out of reach.
Rotten: A single act of heroism can truly transform a life, but that action does not necessarily make for a transformative motion picture.
Rotten: "The 15:17 to Paris" suffers from an excess of dramatic wadding, and the over-all effect is too muffled and often too dull, sadly, to make an impact.
Rotten: Despite good intentions, the movie never lives up to the breathless excitement the real-life story promises.
Totally awesome 👏
This is really a well crafted movie 🎥. I couldn’t believe that the main characters are the real ppl who are the “ heroes “ in real life! They did an amazing job as if they’d been acting for ages. It’s retrospective and current and I can’t say enough great things about it. Watch it and you definitely won’t be disappointed. Leave it to Clint Eastwood to come up with such a clever scrip and as always great director. I’d give it 6 stars 🌟 if possible 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Worst movie of 2017/2018
Can’t say enough bad things about this garbage. Worst acting, terrible plot, and the worst part is the acting and story are from the people that were there. Wait for this mess to be available on free HULU or regular tv, you will get a good nap in 5 minutes into the movie. It’s not even worth watching on Netflix.
Actual, real, American heros. Watch this movie to see how real men behave when death is on the line.
