On the scene where the police officers return to the police station and watch the news footage; notice that there is a cable wire stretching from the back of the TV to the ground, that's because the footage is rewound on a VCR from videotape not Live TV. See more »

This movie brings nothing new. The only reason why people are going to watch disaster-movie nr 911 is because it stars the twin towers.
It's a sad way of making some dough out of this (film-wise) uninteresting event.
A couple of thousand people dieing is (how sad as it may be on a personal level) no unique happening; how many people die in Dafur, Ethiopia every month? Yet, I see no movie about that! There is probably more money to make with Americans dieing than with Africans starving.
More interesting would have been a movie that deals with the "why?" question... Why does the US draw so-much aggression? If you are looking for answers to that question you will have to look elsewhere; not to be found in this movie.
Mr. Stone misses a golden opportunity here. He has taken a milestone in geo-politics and could come up with nothing more than a combination of a "run of the mill" disaster movie and a tearjerker.
