Storyline

8:46 is a moving and heartfelt drama following an ensemble of characters into the moment the world changed forever - 8:46 a.m. Tuesday, September 11, 2001. This film was created to draw a more intimate, humane look at the tragic events of 9/11. Nearly 3,000 innocent people lost their lives that fateful Tuesday morning and each of them had a story, people who loved them, something to live for... a life of value. As we delve into the world of each character, we witness the terror, but also the hope, tenderness, acts of bravery and compassion, and the power of the human spirit. This film is dedicated in loving memory to all those who lost their lives as a result of the September 11 attacks, as well as the brave men and women who responded to the emergency. They will never be forgotten. Written by Forget Me Not Productions

An NYPD officer must live in the five boroughs, or Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Orange or Putnam counties in NY- but not in New Jersey, as the production depicts. A Port Authority police officer can, however, live in a number of counties in New York and New Jersey that are in close proximity to the city. See more »

A jumbled piece of bland storytelling
2 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To capture a moment such as 9/11 on screen and expect to strike the same raw chord as that day did is a hell of a task for a filmmaker. No one has done it, and I don't think anyone will ever capture that day in a way that makes it any easier or harder for Americans to watch. 8:46 treads a fine line between blasphemous and barely enjoyable. As the film documents some of the lives 9/11 touched and ruined, it never strikes any real emotion because every five minutes we're meeting a new character. This makes it extremely hard for the audience to emotionally invest in these characters. If it was only a handful of characters being documented on that horrible day then it may have been somewhat watchable. The characters that are depicted are poorly directed and sloppily written. For a film with a 55 minute runtime, this is just too ambitious of a film project. The acting makes the film laughable at times, which makes it really hard to watch because this is such a serious unnerving subject to depict on screen and that requires actors that don't stumble over their lines and a director that doesn't have a clue what they're doing.

Overall, this film is a well made student film at best. It's a nice netflix movie for a day with ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to watch but other than that, skip it.
