I went to the movies last night to check out World Trade Center and I was overly impressed.
The tagline for the movie reads...
The World Saw Evil That Day, Two Men Saw Something Else
This is a great tagline because it hits the nail right on the head. It shows what happened on 9/11 from an insiders perspective. If you were in the
tower when it went down, you didn't know who hit it, how or why it went down, nothing. You were left in the dark fighting for your life, and this is
the tale that is told.
We have some patriotic moments where a Marine throws out a line or two, but it is minimal which contributes to the success of the movie in my opinion.
No hidden agendas in this movie, no inside plots, just a story of two cops who were trapped inside the towers when they went down.
I found myself choked up a few times and at the edge of my seat for the rest. Everytime It showed that bright blue sky of that morning, it brought me
back to where I was on 9/11.
Stone did a great job on this movie, any critics of this are solely basing it upon the fact he is tackling the 9/11 story. After watching the movie
its apparent its no money grab, it was done with respect to all those involved.
Here are the two men that the movie is based on:
