The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes by Anthony SadlerThis is a tough one to rate, because if I were to give it a low rating it feels like Im giving these heroes a low rating. Thats not it at all. The writing style of Jeffrey Stern is very frustrating. At least I anticipate that he wrote this with the assistance of the three young men. The narration was so disjointed, it was kind of frustrating. I dont even know what else to say. Full review to come. Maybe.

The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes
On August 21, , in what seemed like the blink of an eye, three childhood friends from Sacramento performed an extraordinary feat of heroism aboard a passenger train in France. In directing The to Paris , the challenge for Clint Eastwood was to turn this relatively brief encounter into a compelling minute narrative. To do so, he recruited those same three men, none of whom had any formal acting training, to play themselves on film. Those heroes-turned-actors are Spencer Stone, a former U. On that August day, the trio was riding on a Thalys train headed towards the French capital when a man armed with an assault rifle and pistol opened fire, wounding a passenger.

Three young Americans who are playing themselves in a Clint Eastwood-directed movie about how they foiled a terrorist attack in France say their actions were guided by God. The to Paris , which opens in the US and UK in early February, recounts the dramatic events of 21 August when the three friends launched themselves at a man carrying an automatic AK47 and other weapons on a crowded train.
The film stars Stone, Sadler, and Skarlatos as themselves and follows the trio as they stop the Thalys train attack ; Judy Greer and Jenna Fischer also star. Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos are attending a suburban Christian middle school. They bond over their interest in guns, and are often sent to the principal's office for disciplinary action. Once, while sent to the principal's office, they meet another student, who often misbehaves in school, Anthony Sadler , and the three become friends. Spencer and Alek are from single-mother homes, and their mothers often stick up for them when called to the principal's office regarding their misconduct.
