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 "Since it would be too difficult to make a two hour movie just on the incident itself they added filler or background on the participants which is why some people find it boring. Nevertheless the people that appreciate it are the ones who like the novel way it was presented and that feel a sense of patriotism that their accomplishment elicits."
  • 1 star "Very boring movie! Was all about their growing up years. I left half way through. Do not waste your money. Do not understand all these positive reviews."
  • 5 stars "Excellent portrayal of the event and involvement of the three characters developing from young adults to career adulthood defined their reaction to the situation that occurred, snap reaction."
