The 15:17 to Paris ★½

How do you mess up this story so spectacularly? Nominally, The 15:17 to Paris is about the prevented terrorist attack on a high-speed train from Brussels to Paris on August 21, 2015. This was international news for a while, particularly for the display of heroism by seven of the passengers, who either directly confronted or helped to subdue the gunman. Three of those men were American citizens, and two of them were serving in the military at the time. Those three men play themselves here, in what amounts to director Clint Eastwood showing his appreciation and admiration by giving them a studio-paid tour of Europe.
