That trademark Eastwood lack of sugar coating is what makes its inciting event memorable.

Sad that we never really got to know their three protagonists more than the forced attempt to sell what they did. A big disappointment. [Full Review in Spanish]

For evidence of why narrative filmmaking is generally assisted by the designation of actors who have learned at least some facets of their craft, look no further than Clint Eastwood's egregiously inauthentic experiment.
June 3, 2019
A formless, narratively inert nothing of a movie that often feels like watching someone's home movies of their trip to Europe for an hour and a half.
May 9, 2019
A long drawn out film; horrible pacing, awkward editing, and ultimately, a boring experience.
April 5, 2019
Maybe its time for the much-admired director to rest on his laurels.
February 26, 2019
While the storytelling is competent enough, unfortunately the narrative is lost in an uneventful timeline and awkward exchanges.
February 26, 2019
A poorly take on realistic cinema that ends up being propaganda por Eastwood's latest Republican goals. What a mess. [Full review in Spanish].

"The 15:17 to Paris" is an unsuccessful attempt to tell an incredible story. While I'm always up for unconventional choices, such choices aren't always going to work.

Clint Eastwood has directed 37 motion pictures over the course of 41 years, yet none have been as painful to watch as this one.
December 17, 2018
...one of the most unwatchable movies from a major studio this decade.

A straightforward drama, this film works well enough for what it is but it could've been much better.

The 15:17 to Paris would be better served as a 20-minute short rather than a 90-minute feature as the climatic third act overwhelmingly dwarfs the haphazard, lazy first hour.

It is safe to say that few heard about this incident and wondered what kind of gelato these guys prefer, or what they talk about when connecting on Skype.

"Did he hire three non-actors or only two?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this tedium I kind of lost track myself.

A better idea in theory than in execution...these guys are just so darn ordinary, they're really not terribly interesting, and they're playing themselves...
August 28, 2018
It's a really, really unsatisfactory film, which is a shame because the story is quite an extraordinary one.
August 21, 2018
There's something to this uncharacteristically inept handling of a compelling story. I think it might do well among theater goers who are starving for films with a devote, heroic message.
July 29, 2018
The shoddiest thing Eastwood has ever directed. By far.
June 29, 2018
A multi-layered shame, even acknowledging that The 15:17 to Paris is close to disastrous by the metrics of any movie, not just war or war-adjacent movies.
