Movie Reviews

  • [the movie] teasing us with a deeper story that's disappointingly out of reach
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • unfortunately [the movie] is mostly comprised of banal, drama-free, quotidian scenes that merely reinforce the men's status as regular Joes who, one day, had the opportunity for greatness thrust upon them
    by Todd McCarthy [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • setting aside the xenophobic characterization of the nameless terrorist who takes on the train, the showdown between the men and the assailant is some of Eastwood's most intense filmmaking ever
    Review rate : C+ by Eric Kohn [Indiewire ]
  • much like Sully, there's not enough meat on the bone for a feature. And like American Sniper, it shows little interest in finding a deeper meaning in its characters, their actions, and their country
    Review rate : D by Kevin P. Sullivan [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • Eastwood makes the film feel like a rote assignment -- an act of patriotic duty trying to pass as drama
    2 of 5 by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]
  • Compelling drama it is not... Minus its pivotal event, "The 15:17 to Paris" feels a lot like sitting through someone else's endless photo slide show: Really only interesting to the people who lived it
    1.5 of 4 by Sara Stewart [New York Post ]
  • Clint Eastwood's movie experiment fails badly. Primarily because the leading trio aren't actors and also clearly haven't been asked to act. Instead they just coast through increasingly random and meaningless scenes
    1.5 of 5 by Gregory Wakeman [Metro ]
  • Clint Eastwood's bold choice to have real protagonists does little to enliven a listless story about friendship. Although the terrorist attack is effectively staged, The 15:17 To Paris fails to spin a remarkable film out of a remarkable act of heroism
    2 of 5 by Ian Freer [Empire Magazine ]
  • an experiment in stunt casting, The 15:17 To Paris is one of Clint Eastwood's strangest films --and one of his worst
    Review rate : C- by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [AV Club ]
