Loved the idea....true story & actual heroes instead of overpaid actors! (by howardbooher)
This movie wasn't really a 10, but it was pretty darn good & I used that rating to balance out some of the pathetic low ratings. Anyone who read about and watched the preview, let alone remembered the news story when this happened I do , should not have been surprised. Honestly, the movie was exactly what we expected, and everyone in our group liked it. It was well done, going between the event the attack and flashbacks of a lifelong friendship among three friends. How else would anyone expect an event that probably only lasted a few minutes to last for an hour & a half movie <more>
UNLESS there was backstory added into the movie? Truthfully, anyone who expected a nonstop action flick needs to stop complaining about overpriced Hollywood films, actors, etc. & should just go watch an old action classic if that's all he/she wants. Was some of the acting a little stiff here and there? Yes, but these are real people, playing themselves, who acted heroically during a real event and avoided great tragedy for many, many people on that train. I was never bored, never yawned & truly enjoyed the well done back and forth pace of flashbacks between the attack and the paths that got them to that point. It's a little sad these days that a simply inspiring movie isn't good enough for a good review unless you have actors in it who make millions or tons of stuff gets blown up. I would much rather spend my money on a movie like this than on much of the other garbage that Hollywood puts out these days. I want movies to entertain, but to also be inspiring and not depressing or disgusting, and where the good guy wins. If you want to leave the theater feeling satisfied, this movie will not disappoint.
Heroes being recognized- Thanks Clint for making the movie. (by jdwiltfong)
The movie told a story of these brave men who were at the right place at the right time and took action and didn't sit around or wait for everyone to die first. I appreciated that Clint Eastwood just wanted to tell their story in a simple way. This is not an action thriller it is an account of the event. I loved it for its real life portrayal.
Ordinary people can do extraordinary things (by juliavona)
Just watched this movie and would like to say the critics must have an ulterior motive behind their negative reviews. I am a reasonably intelligent adult and I disagree completely with the critics. In my view, the real-life heroes didn't need actors to help them subdue the terrorist and they didn't need actors to tell their story for them. These three young men performed remarkably, especially considering their lack of acting classes or Hollywood connections. Actually, in this situation, I don't need Hollywood's best on the screen; here I'm looking for a more human touch. <more>
As I watched the story unfold, I never felt the movie lacked in any way. In addition, I applaud Clint Eastwood for his bravery in bringing this act of heroism to the forefront, against much opposition from the entertainment industry. And shame on our media critics for their efforts to minimize this story. Note: check out Wikipedia if you want a better understanding of the 2015 Thalys Train Attack.
Underrated by all - enjoyed the bravery and real guys who were absolute heroes (by melaniewoolfenden)
All the reviews by the professionals said this was just an ok film. Yet, having read the story of Eastwood deciding to star the actual "stars/heroes" I thought it might be worth seeing. Also, the three soldiers who were on the train meant to be having a trip through Europe for pleasure and their "being in the right place at the right time" was amazing. They actually were so genuine and the film managed to convey the decency as well as their bravery in an incredible moment. Why this got poor reviews I do not know. Maybe such heroism is not "cool". But as a <more>
normally liberal older person, I so agree with Francois Mitterant that we should attempt to "do something" and not cower if possible. The three brave men were wonderful to watch in the film as well - not bad "actors" at all!
« mostly comprised of banal, drama-free, quotidian scenes that merely reinforce the men's status as regular Joes who, one day, had the opportunity for greatness thrust upon »Yeah at first I wasn't convinced by this movie but then I realized it was more than that, more than meets the eye so to speak, we're supposed to see a lifestyle, western, European-american opposed to this... barbarian stupid integrist muslimish lifestyle. We don't see him before the "incident" but we know at first sight for sure he's a bad guy, violent and obsessed by his own insanity. We <more>
see them 2 white guys and one black dude smiling, enjoying life, they travel through Europe and then they travel to Paris... Funny thing, Paris has a bad reputation but we don't know why in fact we all know why . French people are rude. The bad guy is the only un-civilized person we see. Everybody else is fine, living their lives and the bad guy is obviously like we say in Frane "un gros rageux". Full of hate that is.People just don't get it.Very good flick.
A victory against terror - enjoyed this thoroughly. (by phd_travel)
For those who criticize the non action parts of the movie miss the point. This movie is about ordinary people who had to deal with an extraordinary situation. The events only took minutes so of course it isn't a non stop action movie. It was a good thing to use the actual people as much as possible the three from Sacramento and the other from Virginia played themselves. It didn't have a reality TV feel - it actually helped make things much more real - not just some famous actors in perilous situations and there is nothing wrong with their acting. The parts showing the training of <more>
Stone were useful for the way he tackled the terrorist later and helped the shooting victim so it wasn't wasted. I actually enjoyed their trip through Rome, Venice, Berlin and Amsterdam. Their dialog was so much like any person who has done the Eurailpass thing would recognize. Showing their happy times helps emphasize the beauty and good times that still exist in Europe A couple of faults - the ceremonial speech at the end by Hollande could have had subtitles. The real footage was cleverly blended with the reenactments. The childhood school bonding is cute but the getting in trouble and visits to the principal's office could have been shortened a bit. Whatever it is it didn't have a Clint Eastwood draggy feeling at all.So good to see a real terrorist situation that turned out okay.
I really don't understand the dislike for this movie. I enjoyed the back story, superimposed over the beginning of the conflict on the train. Eastwood shows us how these boys lifestyles contributed to putting them in the perfect frame of mind and experiences to thwart this particular attempt at terror. I've seen people commenting on their acting abilities but honestly, I thought they did better than some people who actually call themselves actors. Eastwood and these three men did a great job with an amazing story and I was very glad I took the chance on it
Clint Eastwood is a Genius, Amazing Movie! (by TheTruthDoor)
Nobody but Clint Eastwood could have taken this terrorist event and turned it into a 90 minute movie. Mr. Eastwood brilliantly let the real life heroes star as themselves in the movie. As I watched the movie I kept reminding myself that these guys are the real heroes. And that helped keep the excitement level up.Mr. Eastwood knew the men are not real actors but being the American patriot that he is, he let the actual heroes star in the movie as a reward for their brave act.He knows this decision will probably cost a few dollars at the boxoffice, but he felt it was the right thing to do.Clint <more>
Eastwood is a great actor, a great director, an American patriot and a living legend. Go see "The 15:17 to Paris" with patience, an open mind and love of America. These heroes made us all proud....and America needs all the pride we can get right now.
Don't listen to the bashers. Maybe they're happy watching comic book heroes fighting comic book villians. That's fine if that's what you like. This, of course, is about real heroes fighting real villians. This movie does take it's time getting to the meat and potatoes but it's never boring. It's only an hour and a half long. The acting by the three heroes is fine. They held there own. The rest of the supporting cast is solid as it usually is in most of Clint's movies . This is the first movie that made me want to visit Italy. It's beautifully filmed. The <more>
audience really did applaud so I wasn't the only one there who liked it.
