Storyline

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 travelling through Europe. This movie 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 five hundred passengers on-board.

Trivia

Producer and Director Clint Eastwood enlisted the actual Americans who took down the terrorist to play themselves in this movie: Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone. See more »

Goofs

When the three heroes are 12-year-olds in middle school, the movie says it's taking place in 2005. Cut to when they've enlisted, presumably in 2014 or 2015, and a scene shows them watching a real Cal-Tenn college football game. One guy screams "Come on Marshawn!" and they discuss how Cal RB Marshawn Lynch should get the ball more.

Marshawn Lynch played his last college game for Cal in 2006. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Anthony: [narrating] My name is Anthony Sadler. You're probably wondering why a brother like me is hanging out with these two crackers. But trust me, they're my two closest friends. Let me introduce you. This is Alek Skarlatos, the robot. He's a strong guy. He'll always have your back whenever you're in trouble. And this is Spencer Stone. You don't have to worry about him having your back in trouble because I'm sure he'll find it first. Seems like the three of us have been gettin' each other...

asking too much from amateurs
25 November 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos are childhood best friends. Spencer's mom (Judy Greer) and Alek's mom (Jenna Fischer) are single moms. The kids often get in trouble and the principal of the Christian school blames their upbringing. The friends befriend fellow trouble maker Anthony Sadler. Spencer and Alek would join the military. On their leave, they decide on an European vacation with their lifelong buddy Anthony. They are on the train to Paris where they confront a terrorist.

The basic problem is that director Clint Eastwood is asking too much from these real life heroes. They are not trained actor and they can't hold the screen. I do like the childhood section which obvious does not have the three real people. It also ties into Spencer's heroism a couple of times. In reality, that's all that's needed. It just needs a couple of more scenes that relate to his impulse to act at that moment. Otherwise, the movie needs more of the initial fight without the three Americans. Quite frankly, the first third of the movie could be getting on the train, first noticing the long bathroom break, and then the struggle up to the point when Spencer peers around the seat. Then it can go back to their childhood and cut back on some of their adult lives to save them from their acting limitations. Eastwood's conviction is bigger than his pragmatism. Greengrass would have smoked this.
