Goofs

When McLoughlin and Kassimatis are driving to the WTC after the first plane strike, the sun is on the wrong side of the towers, in reality in the morning the sun is on the east side of the WTC, in the movie, its on the west side. This is corrected later when the other officers are shown at the base of the towers See more »

well-made movie
28 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was afraid this movie would be over Hollywoodized like Pearl Harbor was. However, the movie was made in good taste and was very emotional. It was the first time i had ever teared up at a movie. It captured that period very well and it brought back a lot of memories of that day for me and the days that had followed. The acting was pretty good, especially Michael Pena, who seemed to actually be living the experience instead of acting it out in a movie. When the movie ended the audience was silent(pre screening)and didn't clap, not because they didn't like it but out of respect. I felt really in-touch with the characters and while i teared up in some parts I also smiled and even laughed at some parts as the characters tried to cheer each other up. Expect it to win some awards.
