Mini Review - The 15:17 to Paris

The 15:17 to Paris (out Feb 8) is a bizarre film. Based on the true story of a foiled terrorist attack on a Paris bound train in 2015, director Clint Eastwood has cast the three real life heroes in the leading roles. It's an interesting concept (despite the fact their acting skills are sub par) but what will bore audiences is the lengthy, lengthy introduction. The terror attack is only featured prominently in the final 20 or so minutes. Grade: C+.
