Surprisingly, World Trade Centers director is Oliver Stone, whose back catalogue is a mixture of provocative, controversial and challenging films. Here, he wisely pulls back, choosing to let the story unfold with little intervention. His direction is clever and underplayed, which serves to enhance the feeling of claustrophobia and emotion. Its Stones best film in some time, even if it rarely feels like hes the man behind the camera.
Hes helped by some fine turns from his cast, led by Nicolas Cage and Maria Bello, and while theres an argument that the screenplay could use a little pruning, World Trade Center is nonetheless a strong piece of work. True, Paul Greengrass stunning, devastating United 93 is a superior film, but in this case, thats beside the point. Because World Trade Center is still an important, well made film in its own right, and one that deserves, and perhaps needs, to be seen.--Simon Brew
Fantastic film and truly immersive.
Nice to see a different spin on the 9/11 tragedies, whilst maintaining the true grit of the overall tragedy. Read more
Got this for ten pence plus postage, very well made movie, although amazingly depressing,
Due to subject matter of course, but good detailed account of 9/11. Very interesting.
