The 15:17 to Paris: The True Story of a Terrorist, a Train, and Three American Heroes by Anthony SadlerThis is a tough one to rate, because if I were to give it a low rating it feels like Im giving these heroes a low rating. Thats not it at all. The writing style of Jeffrey Stern is very frustrating. At least I anticipate that he wrote this with the assistance of the three young men. The narration was so disjointed, it was kind of frustrating. I dont even know what else to say. Full review to come. Maybe.

Review: In The 15:17 to Paris, Real Heroes Portray Their Heroism
The three Americans who foiled the Thalys train terror attack in France in have returned to Paris where the Clint Eastwood film about their heroics opened Wednesday. Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler, who play themselves in "The to Paris", were reunited in a cinema in the French capital where emergency services crews who tended the injured after the attack were among the audience. Some of them also play themselves in the drama which retells how the three childhood friends from California overpowered a Moroccan jihadist armed with an AK on the Paris-bound high-speed service from Amsterdam carrying more than passengers. We wanted to be exact about what happened," said Skarlatos, 25, an Oregon National Guardsman who served in Afghanistan. Stone was slashed with a bolt cutter around the neck as Skarlatos and Sadler knocked the attacker unconscious and then "hog-tied" him. The three were hailed as heroes both in the United States and in France, where they were awarded the Legion of Honour , the country's highest decoration. Playing herself made it feel weirdly "less natural", she told AFP after the preview screening for cast and crew in the French capital last week.
