Tells a smaller story of courage and survival around the massive, tragic event. It's human performances are effectively heartbreaking. Not as exploitative as you would expect, even though Stone still had to shoe-horn a vision of Jesus in there again...
All the people that have forgotten the lives we lost should have to watch this. It was a well made tribute..focusing on our firemen and police and the brave acts from all that were there. Doesnt talk about the act of terrorism that caused this but thats ok was a good movie
This was promising, but I kept being reminded that this happened five years before! Way too soon to release a film like this, I'm sorry! If it was a few decades after, fine, but, this shouldn't have to be created and pushed out this quickly, damn!
The emotional subject and personal struggles lift this Oliver Stone film. Despite the earnest and heartfelt delivery, it feels a bit like an opportunity has been lost here. It's interestimg, but not quite fulfilling.
World Trade Center is an excellent film. It is about two Port Authority police officers become trapped under the rubble of the World Trade Center. Nicholas Cage and Michael Pena give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Oliver Stone did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this movie because of the drama. World Trade Center is a must see.
Incredibly long run time , so be prepared for long moments of dialogue which all serve to establish the true story about one of Americas most tragic moments in history. What happened on 9/11 will never be forgotten, and the heroes and those who lost their lives will forever be remembered through this stellar and thoughtful film !
Not nearly as bad as most make it out to be. I commend the film for focusing on the gut wrenching tragedy of 9/11 and not the eye for an eye aftermath. Its display of the power of the human spirit is emotional and engaging but it just doesn't seem to be done to its full potential. The film is also laced with far too much manipulative and schmaltzy made-for-tv melodrama.
Sad movie to watch. As a close friend of mine father was lost on this tragic day and is featured in a very minor role in this movie. They often leave to the side Port Authority officer Dominick Pezzulo meanwhile he is a key part of this event. The scene where they portrayed his death should have been spoken with the family before being so quick to say he killed himself, which is not true. Horrible movie, don't recommend.
Though it depicts a rather interesting viewpoint of this event, it just doesn't even hold a candle to "United 93", the other 9/11 film that was released about two or three months before this one. Not bad by any means, but this genre of film being Stone's basis of his filmmaking career, I expected a whole lot better.
