This is an Oliver Stone movie without Oliver Stone. None of the conspiracy of JFK is present here, and that's a shame, because what made JFK so great was its hypnotically watchable weirdness. Stone makes a film about 9-11 yet without conspiracy? What gives? Even the CNN footage was more interesting, Oliver should have done what he knows, what he does best, instead of trying to make it heartwarming, that's not the Oliver Stone we all knew. Even though I don't believe it was a conspiracy, I would have respected Stone's film as one, as controversial. A controversial 9-11 film would have been exciting, or he could have made a revenge film. But this is the cotton candy version of the story, sugar-coated and dull.
