Trivia

The parks were jammed after the attacks and thick billows were seen over Lower Manhattan for hours and people were either in tears, silent or removed their hats as a sign of respect. See more »

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 »

World Trade Center - An Experience
26 July 2006 | by (Tucson, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Many of us remember that morning so vividly. September 11th, 2001. I had the opportunity to see the film from Paramount Pictures and directed by Oliver Stone last night with about 50 firefighters from the Tucson Area as well as a handful of law enforcement officers.

I really wasn't sure if I wanted to see the film. I remember watching the TV, glued to it, for answers to the questions that I never will have answered as to how something so horrible could happen. This film doesn't attempt to try to answer that question, instead it looks at the spirit of people and how we can come together to help others.

I am so glad I went to see this! It is a powerful work of film that tells the story without sensationalizing the event and the anger and hatred for the attackers following the attacks. It's a film of last words and feelings we tend to develop after years in a relationship. There are tears of joy, laughs, and tears of sorrow interlaced throughout this film with Strong acting from a huge cast including Nicolas Cage and Michael Pena.

Totally recommend this film although it may certainly be tough for those that lost loved ones in the buildings.
