Storyline

The incredible story of the events leading up to the bombing of the World Trade Center in New York and the capture of the terrorists. The amazing thing is that the FBI had an informant among the terrorists, but refused to pay him $500/wk for more information. They eventually had to pay $1 million and place him in the witness protection program. A story of incompetence on all sides. Written by Bob Farnsworth

If viewed after Sept. 11, will send shivers down the spine.
13 December 2001 | by (St. Catharines, Canada) – See all my reviews

Path To Paradise, an HBO original movie, tells the story of the events leading up to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City. The film itself is interesting, decent performances and style. However the important draw of this film is it's prophetic content. Watched before Sept. 11th and the movie is just an interesting look at the bombing and the terrorists behind it. Watched after Sept. 11th and you'll barely be able to keep your eyes on the screen. The very last line of Path To Paradise will quite possibly keep you up at night for a long time to come.
