The 15:17 to Paris

Description
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 film 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.

If you're open to the power of Eastwood's formalistic radicalism, it will reveal itself as an admirable piece of hero storytelling - one that, as its tagline suggests, focuses on the real heroes.

Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 to Paris takes a taut, engrossing, and surprising nonfiction book-the most complete and genuine account of an act of real-life heroism that enthralled the whole free world-and turns it into a flaccid, bewildering docudrama.

"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.

An authentic, somewhat tedious re-enactment of a historical event that was ripped from the headlines.

The action sequence on the train is truly remarkable, and Eastwood shoots with a documentary-style immediacy, but the surrounding film - especially the script and performances - doesn't serve this thrilling true-life story, or the audience.

From a Clint Eastwood directorial, one expects better. Alas, this one is relegated to being merely an experiment in casting.

They're all handsome but just appalling actors. This disjuncture is impossible to forget while watching the film, and it's very uncomfortable.

As a Clint Eastwood experiment, and a sincere tribute to the heroism of the three men involved, it succeeds with its earnestness.
