Trivia

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 »

User Reviews

 
Tense & entertaining, but not spectacular
10 December 2017 | by jd-creativeguySee all my reviews

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.
