Did You Know?

Trivia

Was widely considered to be highly offensive and distasteful upon its release for a number of reasons, most notably its release date on the anniversary of 9/11 and its casting of Charlie Sheen, a self-proclaimed "9/11 truther" infamous for his conspiracy theory beliefs that the official story of the tragedy isn't the real one. Despite the film making these choices and becoming a notorious box office flop in 2017, the play it was adapted from, which went by the title "Elevator", was critically-acclaimed and won several awards.

Goofs

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 »

Just bad
8 October 2017 | by WashyBanjoSee all my reviews

I saw this movie on 9/11 and there was no one else in the theater besides me. The movie felt very cheaply made and Charlie Sheen's performance was pretty laughable. Lots of monologues in this film that dragged on and characters I cared very little about, even if they were supposed to be victims of a real event. The whole concept of a movie about being trapped in an elevator is a bad idea for a movie, adding on top a real tragedy just makes it even more tasteless. Fictional characters don't belong in a movie about a tragedy so recent.
