Goofs

On the bus scene, one of the officers got a phone call from his wife saying that a second plane hit the Twin Towers. Later on in the film when the officers arrive at the World Trade Center they look up at the buildings; there is no damage done to the South Tower. The report of the second plane hitting the Twin Towers could have been one of the many rumors going around, like when someone in the movie said that Israel had been nuked and was gone. See more »

This was awful
13 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first movie I've ever got up during the showing at a theatre and walked out. Yeah I know some people are going to panic and whine that I'm a horrible person for not liking the World Trade Center movie, but this was just annoying. The previews show a bright, outdoors thing with lots of police and firefighters and such, when in reality most of the film is just two guys trapped in the dark, in the rubble, talking in strained voices about their family, while their family acts upset at home. Don't get me wrong, I respect the event, but the importance of a historical event doesn't mean everyone should go see a poorly done movie about it. So in conclusion, the film is very repetitive, constant poor lighting and typically unchanging scenery make it unpleasant to watch for a long time, and it was very hard to connect with the characters.
