      Not what I expected

      i remember seeing the trailer for this movie in theaters, and thought it was supposed to be a mainly action film that would normally leave you at the edge of your seat. the only reason im giving this 2 stars is because of what it represents. being a clint eastwood film, i was severely disappointed. it was boring and uneventful. the action portion and climax of the movie lasted no more than 10 minutes. the majority of runtime was the trip these 3 men took, which led to the situation on the train. think of it as a recording of a road trip. thats all this movie was. i regret buying this movie.

      I first want to start by saying that I am not an actor and for that reason I appreciate those who do and do it well. I can't imagine how hard it would be to act and play myself. With that said this movie was so poorly acted that it was hard to watch. This was a great story that fell completely on the acting. This is really surprising considering it was a Clint Eastwood movie. Save your money and wait for it on TV.

      The genius of Clint Eastwood to use the actual people involved in this event was spot on. These three Americans will make you proud to be an American. Don't miss this movie and definitely watch the two short specials included with the DVD. They explain so much about the decisions these guys, and everyone involved in the production of this movie, had to go through to make that decision to be part of this movie.

      Good intentions, but not Clint's Finest

      Using the actual young Americans who over-powered the terrorist on the Paris bound train is admirable, so is shooting the scenes on the actual moving train instead of a studio set. Only Clint could pull that off. The end result though is a over one hour slog until the event takes place. Using actual footage of the the French President awarding medals is very neat too. Video and audio are fine.

      Not worth a full length movie

      So the event that this movie is about took less than 10 minutes. Trying to make a movie that is 1:34 min about that short of an event was going to be difficult, even for Clint Eastwood. Ultimately, the movie didn't have enough to make it good and the acting was not that great. It is a tough one to recommend unless you like movies and were intrigued by it.

      The story of three friends that grow up together, stay in touch over the years and meet for a vacation in Europe. Just 3 friends who rose to the challenge when it presented itself and saved hundreds of commuters on the 15:17 to Paris. Filmed in actual locations with actual participants of the events Clint Eastwood brings his excellent story telling to this movie.

      15:17 to Paris just fell below my expectations. Of course Clint Eastwood in the director's chair is always a good idea, and the story is truly harrowing, and the use of the actual heroes is adventurous, but just like points in his previous movie (Gran Torino), you can tell which actors are pro's and which are amateurs.

      Honestly this movie was a bit of a let down. All-in-all it was a good story of US Military personnel stepping up and selflessly saving the day. The movie starts when they are children and follows them through their lives.. the build up to the action on the rain takes a long time. Still worth a watch.. but maybe RedBox!
