15:17 to Paris, The (15)

Drama, History, Thriller

Three Americans discover a terrorist plot aboard a train while in France.

The critical consensus

Clint Eastwood’s bold choice to have real protagonists does little to enliven a listless story about friendship. Although the terrorist attack is effectively staged, The 15:17 To Paris fails to spin a remarkable film out of a remarkable act of heroism.

**(*)(*)(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 08/02/2018

That these men are brave beyond measure and saved countless lives is in no doubt but, with its focus on the dullest of details, lack of psychological insight and bizarre shifts in tone, it's a bewildering folly indeed.

**(*)(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 08/02/2018

Three young Americans who bravely foiled an attack on a train play themselves in a drama that focuses too much on their excruciatingly dull backstories.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 08/02/2018

Another cool and subtle treatise on the nature of heroism from this American master.

****(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 08/02/2018

The film may be corny and a little gauche but there is no arguing with its sentiments.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 09/02/2018

Three US tourists who foiled a terror attack on a French train play themselves. Poor call by director Clint Eastwood.
