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.
A poster of Letters From Iwo Jima (2006), also directed by Clint Eastwood, appears in Spencer Stone's room during the childhood scenes. See more »
A flashback is set in 2005, but a poster for "Letters from Iwo Jima" is seen. The movie came out in December 2006. Materials for the film came out late in 2006, so in reality no items from the film would be available in 2005. See more »
Underrated by all - enjoyed the bravery and real guys who were absolute heroes
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 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!
