I waist my time and $14.
There is too much forced backstory that makes you think something is connected and then the story moves on. True heroes with a terrible backstory and it seems they felt that way too. The difference when they are in action was almost like they became new people!
Eastwood and Blyskal can’t seem to decide whether they want Stone et al. to be ordinary people thrust into an extraordinary situation or whether they were destined for greatness, so they waffle between foreshadowing and simply biding their time.
Eastwood's main achievement here lies in trusting his hunch that the young men could handle playing themselves onscreen, with an acceptable naturalness and without self-consciousness. This they do, without a false note.
On the whole, 15:17’s slavish adherence to reality ends up arguing that, sometimes, a little Hollywood phoniness can go a long way.

- Clint Eastwood was attached to direct The Ballad of Richard Jewell (????) since 2014 but dropped out in 2016 to do Impossible Odds (????) as his next directorial project after finishing Sully (2016) but the project wasn't ready yet & needed more time in development. So, Eastwood needed another project to take on & decided to sign on to helm this project as his next directorial film.
- A flashback is set in 2005, but a poster for "Letters from Iwo Jima" is seen. The movie came out in December 2006. Materials for the film came out late in 2006, so in reality no items from the film would be available in 2005.
