Covering nearly fifty years of mid-19th-century turmoil, from the tumultuous Texas Revolution to the early women's suffrage movement, "True Women" is a gripping tale of endurance, love, and above all, gritty female determination.
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 »

Horrendous to say the least, and I'm actually being quite generous.
Since the opening scene you get a taste of the absolute mediocrity that follows for the rest of the film. There's so much wrong with it that I really don't even know where to start, but the first apparent serious problem seems to be the casting choice, and that's what probably made this movie fail in such disastrous proportions. This film needs to be shown in acting school as an example for how NOT to act, and I'm honestly very surprised that Whoopi Goldberg got herself involved in such an amateurish project, as there's a big difference between supporting a cause and agreeing to be part of a mediocre production. All the performances were terrible, but Sheen's acting in particular is so laughably bad that by the end of the movie I felt truly embarrassed for him. The script is extremely weak and lame - the dialogue between some of the characters is stupid and totally unnecessary in moments of tension that are supposed to be serious. The so called "comic relief" fails miserably and it clearly makes the scenes cringy and awkward for the actors themselves. The characters are so unlikable and annoying that at some point you actually stop caring about them, and when you have such a limited acting cast and this situation occurs you know the movie is in serious trouble. Generic camerawork and choppy editing makes the technical aspect of the production seem boring and unattractive. The overall tone of the movie is very confusing, as sometimes it feels like a low-budget horror film and other times it has the comedic vibe of a parody. All in all this has to be one of the absolute worst films of 2017.
