On the morning of September 11, 2001, a messenger sings "Happy Birthday to You" to his daughter, a billionaire argues with his wife in a divorce hearing, a maintenance man begins his day, and a young Russian decides she's breaking up with her sugar daddy. When the first plane hits the World Trade Center, these five elevator passengers find themselves trapped. Forced to band together, they fight against all odds to escape before the imminent and inevitable collapse occurs..
9/11 is the second full-length feature film of the September 11th Attacks to be adapted from a play. The first was a 2005 film titled "The Great New Wonderful", which was more successful upon its release but quickly faded into obscurity after its DVD release in 2006. Both films featured prominent actors and actresses. See more »
Eddie starts hitting the drywall to get out of the elevator, making at least two big marks on it. Then the elevator cables start breaking. When Eddie starts banging the wall again, it is free of any hammer marks. See more »

I'm not sure what all the negative reviews are about, other than some people expect Oscar-worthy performances, stunning visuals and special effects, and obscenely creative story writing. This film has none of those, but that doesn't mean it's bad.
This was an entertaining film with pretty good acting. The story can't really be that creative, because the entire world knows how this story ends... it's kind of like watching a documentary that has a little bit of "creative license" thrown in to make it watchable—though this film is not a documentary.
