I ordered the DVD and just saw the movie. Here is my review posted on the IMDB message board for the film:
* Warning: May contain a few spoilers. *
I ordered the DVD and just saw it.
Not bad. Very interesting. But at 90 minutes, it felt rushed. A lot more things could have been expanded upon and developed more.
I'm also disappointed that they weren't able to use real stock footage from the news broadcasts from 9/11, probably due to legal reasons.
I don't understand some of the plot though. So those black drone planes replaced the real flights? What happened to the real flights then? We saw
what happened to the passengers of one flight. But what about the other three?
* Warning: Spoilers *
It also seems far fetched that they would put all those involved in the remote controlled planes project onto one plane without everyone getting
suspicious. Immediately, they would have deduced that they were going to be disposed of. Yet only one guy found it odd, but did nothing.
I didn't understand the plot behind Flight 93 though. Why were they going to crash it into that hole? What would be the point of that? I thought it
was supposed to hit Building 7? They should have went with that plot instead.
Also, it was not explained why they wanted to take down Building 7. Did I miss it?
Why did the guy who detonated the WTC want to detonate early without receiving the order? That wasn't explained. Was he supposed to wait for the
building to be evacuated first?
I'm also not clear which character played George W. Bush and which played Larry Silverstein. Their names weren't used so it wasn't clear who was
The film also has some minor bugs. The words describing the time and location at the bottom were too small, smaller than they are supposed to be in
movies. The ending credits were also too small too. And the DVD menu was weird. You could barely see the yellow selector line, it was broken and
uneven and vanished under certain chapters.
It was obvious that this was made on a low and limited budget with many restrictions. I wish someone like Oliver Stone would make this. It should be
at least 2 hours too, so more details could be developed and explained.
But it's a good film nonetheless, even though it felt rushed. The directors and actors must have had a lot of guts to be willing to do a film like
this regardless of the consequences.
It's a pity the mainstream media and movie critics don't want to acknowledge the existence of this film.
