On September, 11th 2001, after the terrorist attack to the World Trade Center, the building collapses over the rescue team from the Port Authority Police Department. Will Jimeno and his sergeant John McLoughlin are found alive trapped under the wreckage while the rescue teams fight to save them.Written by

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 »

Some people have commented that this movie didn't accurately depict 9/11 and have complained that Oliver Stone didn't portray the events or that he milked us for emotion.
I disagree. I watched Michael Pena and Nicolas Cage depict two PAPD officers - Ofc. Jimeno and Sgt. McClauglin but I couldn't help but picture every officer or person involved directly in the horror of that day. There are plenty of documentaries on the subject...and every year on 9/11, they give you a blow-by-blow of the events. This was a movie, that showed what two men - and what their friends/family/departments went through and I thought of and felt for everyone through their story.
From what I've read...and from the commentaries in the film, it is factual for their story and I think it's just a coincidence that it just HAPPENED to be good enough for a Hollywood story. I mean - I appreciate getting to hear their story.
