This movie is intended as a "lite" introduction to the more fevered 9-11 conspiracy theories without quite donning the tinfoil hats. How could the military have so rapidly responded to Payne Stewart's plane in 1999, but not to the 9-11 hijackings? Answer: Because the military didn't respond rapidly in 1999. It took 81 minutes, far more time than the military had on 9-11. Why didn't the 9-11 Commission Report mention the collapse of Building 7? Because it was irrelevant; nobody died there and in fact the collapse of the building was anticipated by the FDNY.
At its heart this film is dishonest; the filmmakers (and several of the subjects of the film) believe in the full-bore conspiracy theories, but they chose to cloak themselves in the guise of "Just asking questions" because they sense that the public disagrees with their paranoid world view.
