    I see nothing wrong with his acting as he thought he lost an airliner. With that said, you don't like movie which is fine as I'm sure I don't like certain movies that you have an affinity towards, but, you don't have to justify your film opinion to us. We accept your opinion, but, many of us don't agree with it. To each his own!

    I have a couple of friends that attended a preview screening of The 15:17 to Paris. They hated it. They said it was boring for much of the film and the acting left a lot to be desired. They gave it 1 out of 5 stars. They see a lot of films each month and I think that's the lowest rating I've ever seen them give.

    Edit: I see that Brian Orndorf has given it 1 out of 10 stars:

    I rarely agree with Orndorf but 1 out of 10 is pretty damn low. I don't think I'll be bothering with this film.

    I thought he was fine. He had a very small part and played it well.

    The religious aspect wasn't that big a deal in the film to me.
    No one was beating anything over anyone's head about it.

    The movie though was just sort of ok.
    Wasn't great, wasn't awful.

    Was just a little movie to tell a story and tribute the guys who stopped the gunman on that train.

    I'd say 3/5 stars.

    Thanks for the warning.

    The acting was bad. What was Clint thinking. They are no Audie Murphy.

    I think we all knew the acting was going to be bad, the trailer showed us that much. I don’t care how accomplished a director your are, you can’t take every day people and turn them into actors. I’ll still use MP if only to see this bad acting.

    When the disc hits the bargain bins I might pick it up just to see the big sequence.

    I saw an interview with the three guys the other day. I thought it was interesting that they said they felt no weirdness in re-living the dramatic situation they had found themselves in. They said none of them suffer from any sort of PTSD symptoms from what they went through.

    On Kimmel Clint said that nearly everYone on the train came back to re-enact all of it for the movie.

    The big sequence wasn’t all that big.

    Lasted maybe a few minutes at most.

    I’d recommend a rental from redbox.

    I wish I had. Not even sure it is worth a Red Box rental. I am glad it was an MP film. Still have half a month to even things out :).

    Whew, glad I passed (via MoviePass, ironically enough) and saw Peter Rabbit, instead. :)

    I don't agree with the extremely harsh drubbing the film is getting. It gave me what I expected and I was never bored -- I was very interested in their personalities as boys, their friendship, and the minutiae of their vacation before the incident. The fact they played themselves (as well as others in the cast) just gave the film more weight.

    I can't do MoviePass and paid my $8.50 for this and am fine with that. :P
