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.
At 94 minutes, this has the shortest running time out of all of Clint Eastwood's directorial projects. The previous record holder was "Sully" (2016) at 96 minutes. See more »
The scene in the German bar was not shot in a German bar, as filming locations on IMDB also state that none of the scenes were filmed in Germany. The text on the menu behind the counter and other signs in the bar had errors in spelling and grammar. And the German bar maid, speaking German first, has a thick English accent. While when she switched to English it was just fine. See more »
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...

I don't understand why people gave this such bad reviews, it was a good movie. I think k it's great that Clint Eastwood used the real guys to play themselves. They did a great job. I read reviews of people who didn't understand why they showed them as kids, it was to show why they were together. The difference between this and fiction is that the attack and take down of the terrorist is only a fee short minutes. If this was a fiction we would have seen why the terrorist attacked the people o the train, but this isn't about him. What those guys did was courageous, and I'm glad they were able to stop the attack, otherwise everyone would have died.
