In Britain we have a show called 999 where real life disasters are reconstructed on screen . I don`t know if there is an equivalent show in the US but watching WITHOUT WARNING made me think I was watching a feature length episode of 999 because this TVM is filmed entirely on video tape so it can be intercut with real life footage of the 1993 world trade centre bombing and feels too much like a reconstruction than a drama. It`s all rather understated and fairly undramatic but I suppose that`s better than the glossy PEARL HARBOR approach of having hunky up and coming stars shouting " Get me a damn firehose " and running into a blazing building in slo-mo . And I guess there is some irony of seeing a then pre ER George Clooney spending much of this TVM in a hospital bed as an injured fireman . But it`s impossible nowadays to write the initials WTC or hear the words " World trade centre " without thinking of the date 9/11
