Becky and I went to see World Trade Center last week at the AMC Movie Theater in Littleton, Colorado.The movie theater had a pretty diverse crowd with a number of teenagers to elderly movie watchers.
The Fandango website at World Trade Center describes the movie as follows:
“Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone tells the true story of the heroic survival and rescue of two Port Authority policemen – John McLoughlin and Will Jimeno – who were trapped in the rubble of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, after they went in to help people escape. The film also follows their families as they try to find out what happened to them, as well as the rescuers who found them in the debris field and pulled them out. Their story shows how the best in people rose above the tragic events of that day.”
World Trade Center is a very emotional film that brought the massive destructive events of September 11th, 2001 down to the individual level and made you realize how many lives were truly effected by the terrorist attack. The movie moves pretty slow and forces you to experience the agony of being trapped under the rubble of the Twin Towers as you wait for the lead characters to die or be rescued.
For this reason, most of the young people in the theater didn’t like the movie and some of them got up and left. For anyone who experienced that day, where most of the world was glued to their television sets, the movie will have a much stronger emotional impact.
Becky and I both thought that the movie was definitely Worth The Trip and agreed that the acting and directing of the film was great. What makes it really important is that it’s based on a true story and it’s clear that Oliver Stone went to great lengths, along with the cast and crew, to keep the story as accurate as possible.
