Alek and Spencer have made a sport out of getting in trouble.  But after a teacher recommends medicating the boys, their mothers pull them out of public school and into a private Christian school.  While they are not fans of the new school, they met Anthony as he walks out of the principal’s office.  The principal warns Alek and Spencer to stay away from him.  So they become best friends with him.  The three love history and war games.  But when Anthony decides to change schools and Spencer goes to live with his dad in another state, the boys worry it could be the end of their friendship.  However, they continue their bond.  And when Spencer decides to spend his R&R in Germany, Alek and Anthony decided to backpack through Europe and meet him there.  Every decision they have made from boys to teens to young men will save hundreds of lives.

Based on the book The 15:17 to Paris, this true story of real heroes is amazing to watch (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  However, this movie is different because it doesn’t focus on the one event, it focuses on their entire childhood.  Their friendship is what led them to that train on that fateful day.  They even debated if they should go to Paris just moments before boarding.   These men were preparing for this moment since the day they met.  Now you get to watch the real heroes replay not only the day but their lives.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars

You’re a mom. You’re supposed to worry about your kids – Spencer

It’s not that we didn’t think you couldn’t do it. We just think you won’t – Anthony
