It's not an easy task to make a film about a very recent human tragedy with such a large number of innocent people having lost their lives, even more so if the event is still relatively fresh in people's minds.

Upon hearing Oliver Stone had taken the director's chair I wasn't expecting a wildly over the top "JFK" type film with tons of conspiracy theories thrown in (that could have backfired and possibly not worked for an audience). But I did expect more from Stone and he's gone down the ultra conservative path of not raising any questions about the attacks at all. I wouldn't have been surprised if the film studio would not have gone for a more energetic and asking questions type production (I am sure they will come later one as time passes), but this looks like it hit George W's desk and got the rubber stamp of approval.

Even taking all this into account the script is unexciting, the cast merely passable at best and nothing realty stands out from the film at all. Despite being based on a true story Stone fails to deliver.

The story follows John McLoughlin (Cage) and Will Jimeno (Michael Peña) who are port authority police officers who arrive at the scene, after co-ordinating rescue efforts and helping people they eventually become trapped and against all odds manage to survive.

Cast wise it's ok but I'm not a fan of Cage in roles like this he's better suited mostly to lighter work, we get some decent supporting cast members too Maggie Gyllenhaal, Stephen Dorff, Maria Bello, but they're hamstrung with a script that is uninteresting and contrived.

I'm not marking the film down for it's lack of edge or wild theories there is nothing wrong with a very human and personal true story esp with such a tragic event.

If this film was about anything else, maybe I would give it a bad review. But because of the subject matter I was moved to tears. I was watching it on my computer (I have a Bluray/HdDvD combo drive) and had to pause a few times to get control over myself (the brief shot of a person jumping out of a WTC window was one such scene). The film does a good job of reminding you the significance of 9/11 as one of the most depressing days in recent memory. I'm not a knee-jerk patriotic type, but I still found it difficult to keep myself from being affected by the power of the memories of that day. (I'm American but I have lived in the U.K. for a long time).

In terms of the Blu-Ray quality, there were some pretty good scenes but overall it didn't really stand out from a picture clarity standpoint. I haven't seen the DVD version though, so I can't say whether it is any better. I can't unhesitantly recommend it on picture quality though, so I suggest you rent it first to decide whether you want to add it to your permanent collection.

This is the first film made about 9/11, and obviously it was going to be very hard. The film tells the story of two men, one a police officer and the other a fire fighter, who both find themselves trapped in the WTC rubble following its collapse. The events of the day such as the planes hitting the towers, and the suicide jumps of trapped office workers are worked into the film very early on, but after the collapse, the film focus largely goes back and forth around the families of the men who are trapped (particularly the police officers pregnant wife) and the two trapped men, who desperately try to urge each other on to survive, often one pulling the other back from the brink of despair.

The film does not have many weaknesses, although I felt one or two scenes when the men are trapped were over dramatic, such as when a police officers gun for no apparent reason starts to fire off rounds, or when fireballs fall through the rubble narrowly missing the men, with no explanation offered as to where they came from. These overly dramatic and not very believable elements spoiled what should have been a total focus on the mental and emotional state of the two men and their families. When the film stays on these themes, it is at its strongest, and is a good film, albeit not a world beater. You will like it if you are interested in the events of the day, but more casual film fans may not be particularly impressed by it.

I don't know if it's because we have become conditioned to wanting or indeed, demanding violence and shock/horror with our entertainment today but the film did not hit the right buttons for me. Yes, Nicholas Cage is always good, at least for me in whatever he does. That being said, I guess it was a difficult film to make with so many viewpoints and opinions having to be brought into play. What must have been nigh on impossible was how to communicate the feelings and emotions of such an horrific event. What did come through and that almost perfectly was the scenes where the families of Nicholas Cage and his buddy were in that place of not knowing one way or the other. The tension and anxiety was quite tangible, and if this was meant to adequately convey how thousands must have been feeling at the time, then the director certainly scored a hit.

The rescue from such a horrific environment was handled well, with the marines ALMOST missing the pipe banging and shouting from beneath them..the horror of being missed also came across very well. The film would have ended up being hours long if all the issues that I wanted to see incorporated had been covered. Is that a criticism? No far from it. Would I recommend the film? Certainly, but don't pitch your expectations too high and you will be pleasantly suprised. Life from almost certain death? Yes, just a great pity more didn't make it.
