Patriot Tales: Clint Eastwood discusses work on '15:17 to Paris'

In many ways, Spencer and Anthony (who travel separately for part of the time while Alek visits a long-distance girlfriend in Berlin) are your typical Americans overseas, taking selfies in front of every major attraction or lovely view, eating and drinking their way across a continent.

El-Khazzani was armed with an AK-47, a pistol, a box cutter, 270 rounds of ammunition and a bottle of gasoline during the high-speed railway ride to Paris.

Moments after the attack had begun, Stone - who had been awakened from a nap by sounds of gunfire and screaming - ran straight at El Khazzani and took him down.

Skarlatos wrestled the attacker's weapon from him.

They ended up in the train auto where they stopped the attack because they moved for better wireless internet access.

The three young men made global news for their heroic efforts.

A lawyer representing a man accused of carrying out a foiled terrorist attack has spoken out against a film by Clint Eastwood depicting the incident. But Eastwood had another plan: They would play themselves. "Alek just hit me on the shoulder and said, 'Let's go'". I guess this is what Eastwood believes to be a true American patriot - to be able to leer at women and then save them from bullets with their wide chests.

Khazzani's lawyer Sarah Mauger-Poliak, said: "I am aware that my client is not an angel but let's justice do its work". Hundreds of years ago, we erected statues; 50 years ago, we waited until said hero died and named a street or park after them. Maybe even say we jumped off the train somehow and survived, we would have found out later hundreds of people were dead, and we had a moment to do something and we passed it up.

Post that, he will start working on Rohit Shetty's Simmba, which promises to be an out-and-out action entertainer. The impeccable performances of the lead actors in the movie have been appreciated by one and sundry.

Sadler said it was like a reunion, while Skarlatos said it felt like closure. All 23 at the time, they said they were searching for fulfillment, like many young adults. And it was an honor to do something that good.

"It's kind of a great feeling, like we're finally putting it behind us in a way", Skarlatos said. Spencer, who keeps a closet full of realistic-looking toy guns and leads the others on shoot-'em-up adventures in the woods, has a vague sense that "life is just pushing us toward something, like some greater objective".

"We are just three ordinary guys", Sadler said.

"As far as on the train that day, you can't nearly deny that God had his hand on us because so many things could have gone the other way". Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy probably that is what this is meant to be. On August 21, 2015, a terrorist aboard the Thalys train bound for Paris was thwarted in his attempt to carry out his mission of evil. Astonishingly bad, as you might imagine. Three weeks before shooting he calls us into a meeting and we think we're going to meet the actors who are going to play us. Watching three regular guys - three lifelong buddies - retrace their steps through Germany, Rome, Venice, and Amsterdam is nearly tolerable because these are really nice guys. What they learned in the military prepared them for the very special task that God had waiting for them. It's all about what fate hands you ... and how you handle it.

As he entered the train auto where the three friends were sitting, the men had to act fast. There are also scenes showing them at home and outside playing with toy guns.

It's not their lack of compelling charisma that is the picture's main problem but rather that the on-screen story has not come up with anything compelling for them to do outside their heroism.

And if this weren't enough the European vacation of these heroes is peppered with images of them mansplaining American valor to a German guide and the camera floating up the skirts of pretty European women like in an RGV movie.
