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.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The 15:17 to Paris pays clumsily well-intentioned tribute to an act of heroism, but by casting the real-life individuals involved, director Clint Eastwood fatally derails his own efforts.

Real-life terror attack drama is both awkward and effective.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The 15:17 to Paris is a fact-based drama directed by Clint Eastwood about three Americans who stopped a terrorist attack aboard the titular train in 2015. The intense, bloody terrorist attack is shown; viewers will see a shooting, fighting, bashing with a rifle butt, choking, and knife slashes. Kids also play "war" with very realistic-looking toy guns. Language includes several uses of "s--t," plus "a--hole," "goddamn," and more, including a brief racial reference. A scene in a nightclub features scantily clad women, kissing, and women dancing on a stripper pole. There's also a little innuendo. Characters drink beer and wine socially, sometimes resulting in hangovers. A character smokes a cigarette. The three main characters are played by the actual men involved in the incident; their acting is often amateurish, and there are long awkward/unnecessary stretches, but when the movie gets going, it works.
