Did You Know?


Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson, who lost his father in the 9/11 attacks, condemned the 9/11 film in an Instagram post, citing actor Charlie Sheen's history with the Truther movement. Although Davidson is notorious for using what many would consider blatantly cruel and offensive 9/11 humor as a coping mechanism on stage, he didn't like the way the film dramatized such a subject and hired an actor who spreads rumors about the attacks, and brought up his father's death (his father was a firefighter believed to have been killed somewhere in the Marriott Hotel near the World Trade Center). Although some people wholeheartedly agreed with Davidson, others online argued that the film handled the taboo subject of 9/11 very well, and that Sheen's status as a 9/11 conspiracy theorist should not determine his ability to act. Rebecca McNutt, a teenage author known for writing the 9/11 themed novella Bittersweet Symphony that same year, stated on Goodreads, "9/11 is not my tragedy - well, actually it is to some degree for reasons better not talked about, but it's not my tragedy alone to deal with and understand. It's everybody's tragedy, and I really don't feel like I necessarily have the right to condemn this film when there are people out there who actually lost parents and friends during 9/11, people far worse off than I am in terms of this disaster - but all the same, I can't pretend that it doesn't offend me, not that I'm saying it should be censored. If people really get enjoyment from it, it's not my duty to complain about something like that." IndieWire and The Wrap also posted articles on the 9/11 film, with headlines such as "Charlie Sheen Drama Is Beyond Offensive". See more »

You're hoping for better (casue of the title and what it means), but you don't get it. However, it's still an OK film.
10 September 2017 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

I just realized the movie came out on the weekend before 9/11's 16th anniversary, but first and foremost, this movie is about people. It's a compelling story about how strangers from all walks of life, can just so happen in an elevator, set to the background of 9/11. These people start to bond as they attempt to survive.

It's trilling, suspenseful and very dramatic, especially the performance of Charlie Sheen, proving he is still capable of playing a character that's just not himself in a way (Don't even know the last time he played someone who was not named Charlie)

The whole movie feels like a play, and then I find out in the end credits that that's exactly what it was adapted from, a play called Elevator, a title I must admit I'd prefer over 9/11.

Though I understand why they called in 9/11, what's good about this character driven piece is the fact that it's about the characters and the story happens to be set on 9/11. I just love the good life lessons the story tells as these strangers get to know each other past the stereotypes we put on people on our first impressions. Very human.

Overall, it's not the best movie but I am impressed by the adaption. It really touches on the right emotions.
