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.

Goofs

While in the medic class, Alex addresses the instructor, a female non-commissioned officer, as "ma'am." NCOs are addressed by their rank, e.g. "Sergeant," "Master Sergeant, etc." Outside of basic training (and then, only in the Marines), they are never addressed as "ma'am" or "sir." Alex has been in the service long enough to know this. 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...

Heroes but not the best actors
15 July 2019 | by royjacobsenSee all my reviews

I wish Clint would've done the back story on the terrorist as well as the heroes, would've been cool to bring it all together at the end. But too slow moving for me until the last 20 min.
