COMMENTS: THE DRAMATIC THRILLER "15:17 TO PARIS" EXPLORES THEMES OF SINGLE PARENTHOOD, THREAT TO LIFE, DISAPPOINTMENT, TERRORISM, DETERMINATION, FRIENDSHIP, BRAVERY AND DESTINY. THESE THEMES ARE COMPLEX AND MATURE, BUT ARE ALSO INSPIRATIONAL AND CONTAIN POSITIVE MESSAGES ABOUT BRAVERY AND DOING THE RIGHT THING.
THEMES ARE PRESENTED WITH AN OCCASIONAL SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE AS PRESENTED BY THE SCENES DEALING WITH ANEXCESSIVELY ARMED GUNMAN THREATENING THE LIVES OF PASSENGERS ON A TRAIN. THEMES ARE PRESENTED SENSITIVELY, BUT ALSO REALISTICALLY IN A DRAMATIC FORM. CINEMATIC FORMAT, RESULTING IN ENHANCED AUDIO-VISUAL EFFECTS, CONTRIBUTES TO A HEIGHTENED IMPACT FOR VIOLENCE WHICH INVOLVES BLOOD-LETTING AND WHICH MAY DISTRESS SENSITIVE VIEWERS.
THE COMPLEXITY OF SOME OF THE THEMES, SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE AND GRAPHIC DISPLAYS OF VIOLENCE CONTRIBUTE TO A CUMULATIVE STRONG IMPACT WHICH MAY UPSET, DISTRESS AND DISTURB, AND EVEN THREATENS THE SENSE OF SECURITY OF EMOTIONALLY IMMATURE VIEWERS UNDER 16 YEARS.
