Hard to Watch, But Relevant
12 September 2011 | by ck10101980See all my reviews

Watch this if...you enjoy documentaries and/or have interest in 9/11 and it's aftermath on those impacted. It is moving and relevant, but somewhat hard to watch due to the content.

Acting/Casting: 6* - While the acting doesn't apply here, the casting does. A solid job of picking out a diverse group to follow over the last 10 years.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: *6 - Well thought out directing and a nice job of keeping the viewer interested by switching the stories around frequently.

Plot/Characters: 6* - Interesting concept to follow around 5 individuals for 10 years that were impacted by 9-11. It is hard to watch just how much the lives of these people have changed, but it is also very moving.

Entertainment Value: 6* - It is a hard watch due to the premise and isn't going to keep you on the edge of your seat, but it extremely relevant and gives good perspective on just how much 9-11 changed so many lives. Worth a watch if you like documentaries or if you have interest in 9-11.

My Score: 6+6+6+6 = 24/4 = 6.0
