The 15:17 to Paris

The film is based on a true story about an incident on Aug. 21, 2015 where three Americans — Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and US Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone (who play themselves in the film) — prevented a man carrying an AK-47 pistol from wounding and killing passengers on a train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris. Directed by Clint Eastwood, it also stars Judy Greer, Jenna Fischer, and Thomas Lennon. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a measly 24% rating. Variety’s Owen Gleiberman writes, “The film keeps telling us that what took place aboard that train was the fulfillment of something, but neither the event nor the three people re-enacting it seem entirely real. They seem like pieces of reality trapped in a movie.”
