Did You Know?


Contrary to popular belief, the Elevator story in this film and the people trapped in it are entirely fictional. No such thing happened during 9/11. In reality, a small group of men got trapped in an elevator car but quickly broke through a sheet-rock wall into what was a public restroom within the building after which they ran away to escape the building, and several people were trapped in an elevator car on the first floor of one of the towers; promptly the car opened and everyone was able to get out before the buildings collapsed. The story in this film is highly dramatized and not based on any real person's experience in the elevators of the World Trade Center. 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 »

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.
