Unlike the fictional anti-American movies nominated for Oscars this year, Clint Eastwood's new film tells a true story about the real United States, the one I grew up in.
The 15:17 to Paris tells the true story of three heroes (played by themselves) who thwarted a terrorist attack on a train in Europe.
First off, this movie looks great. The 15-minute train attack sequence alone should win an award.
However, The 15:17... does drag a little: They could have cut at least 30 minutes from its two-hour running time.
That said, the movie is unapologetically patriotic and puts the heroes' Christian faith front and center. Watch my review (SPOILER ALERT) to see what I think about it over all.
