Unmoving and clichedBy Tim from London , 10 Sep 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Oliver Stone is not known for making subtle films but even by his standards this is bombastic and cliched. Some truly dreadful moments - especially in the flashback scenes and any scene featuring the marine where the script is toe curling. He evens resorts to visions of Jesus and the final scenes where Stone tries to make links between 9/11 and Iraq is unforgiveable. The only reason to see this film is for the terrific sound effects when the buildings collapse. If you want to see a moving film about the tragedy and heroism of that terrible day see Flight 93.

Disappointing - Not factual enoughBy a customer from Bedford , 09 Mar 2010This film is based on such a delicate and tragic event. I personally dont feel the film did it justice. It was not action filled....or full of facts of the actual events of September 11th.
World Trade CentreBy lizziep (4 reviews) from Dunfermline , 25 Feb 2010This was a good film, but not as exciting as i expected it to be. Glad i watched it tho.
PoorBy bigAL1978 (30 reviews) from Bolton , 30 Jan 2010If you want to spend two hours watching men trapped in rubble, this is perfect for you. Why on Earth this didn't centre on the other hundreds of incredible stories that day is beyond me. We don't really get to know the characters, we just feel trapped with them. It's a bit like a movie on abuse and at the end, the abuse stops. It's that unrewarding. The people who endured this actual situation deserved more.
didnt watchBy a customer from norfolk.UK , 28 Nov 2009didnt watch this one...
Deceives to DisappointBy Luckyluke (74 reviews) from London , 26 Nov 2009This film deceives to disappoint. The actual horror and devastation of 9/11 is not really felt while watching the film, even though its the story of just two of the PTA men who was trapped but survived the tower's collapse. Anyway, the movie's made as close to reality as possible, and I must admit its well done.
