Storyline

Scheduled to air shortly before the second anniversary of the September 11 attacks, DC 9/11 takes an inside look at the Bush Administration, beginning with the day of the attacks, and following the President's journey to Ground Zero, culminating with his now famous national address nine days after the attacks. The film covers the many difficult decisions and tasks faced by the President and his staff as they were challenged by the possibility of the "first war of the 21st Century." Eschewing their own feelings and healing process, the President and his team instead tended to the needs of a wounded country. Based on real life accounts the docudrama will interweave actual footage from these haunting events. Written by Showtime Networks Inc.

I find it very interesting that for what will probably be one of the only films made of president Bush. The person they get to play him was the same one that played him on a show that made fun of him. The performances are adequate and situations laughable. This film looks like it was written and directed by Karl Rove. George W Bush is portrayed as Alexander the Great. A fearless leader who is all knowing and who had no fear. Every situation regardless if it matches his expertise or experience he is shown as being all knowing. He has all the answers and is never wrong. Since it has always appeared to me and others that Bush is a manifactored President they make him appear as if he created everything instead of who he is. Even though I believe that there is some truths in this it still comes off as bad storytelling. Plus the guy who plays Rumsfeld comes off as being to Gung HO! 5 out of 10
