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 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.

Trivia

The first person to tackle the terrorist on the train was a Frenchman. He later turned down the Légion d'honneur and asked to remain anonymous because he feared reprisals from other Islamists living in France. See more »

Goofs

A character during the Colosseum scene mentions that in ancient Rome, "thumbs down" meant to kill your opponent in a gladiatorial match. In actuality, "thumbs up" meant to kill your opponent, while "thumbs down" meant do not kill your opponent (literally, put your weapon in the ground). However, most people make this mistake ; so it is an error by the character, not a Character Error goof by the film-makers. 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...

Unexpected and Refreshing
12 March 2018 | by tldavis-39958See all my reviews

This is one movie I am so thankful I didn't read reviews about. Had I read the reviews I might have missed a fantastic movie. Of course everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but I believe those who give this movie negative reviews don't grasp what they are actually watching. In my opinion, Mr. Eastwood has orchestrated a masterpiece here. Some will think the movie starts slow; I thought the same thing until reflecting on the whole at the end. If you go, don't prejudge half way through before giving the entire movie a chance to tell it's story. I left the film reminded there is still good to be found in this evil world. I left the film reminded of why I chose to serve in the military in the first place. I left the film proud of the people who played a role in this story. Go see it ... look for the humanity in it ... and understand the movie couldn't achieve what it does with a quick start and all action. Two thumbs way up for Mr. Eastwood and the cast!
