All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

Now comes a new movie that uses the tragedy as heartracing backdrop, but has absolutely nothing to say about it, wielding the horrors of that day with all the subtlety and grace of a promoted brand tweet.

Even if the film relies too much on the real-life horror of the actual event to loan it some gravitas, the performances touch the emotions honestly and deservedly.

9/11 trades on the emotional weight of its namesake day, manipulating audiences into feelings that have nothing to do with the mess that is actually on screen.

By invoking September 11th, this movie is announcing that it has something to say... it's the film equivalent of a guy loudly demanding the attention of everyone in a subway car, then refusing to even issue a compellingly strange rant.

Proves so exploitative that its end credits' dedication to the victims and first responders feels tawdry.

Not the out-and-out disaster it looked to be, this well-meaning 9/11 drama is instead overwrought and acerbic and doesn't really make the connection between its fictional situation and the real one.

Audience Reviews for 9/11

A poorly made and rather mundane 9/11 film, 9/11 has no real story to tell or insight into the events of that day. Based on a play, the film follows five people who get trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center during the September 11th attacks. There's no actual story, the characters just talk a bit about inane things and make a couple attempts at getting out of the elevator. The characters aren't fleshed out at all, and the director doesn't do a very good job at creating tension or a sense of claustrophobia. In fact, most of the sets look pretty cheap and all the September 11th footage is shown in a zoom on a television. Still, there are a few emotional moments, just given the nature of the material. Yet 9/11 is uninspired and has no passion.
