WORLD TRADE CENTER

2006 **1/2 128 mins.

Oliver Stone's World Trade Center> is a major missed opportunity. For the first feature film about the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, this one is very lackluster. There's not enough of Oliver Stone in this film. It feels as though Stone was just making a by-the-numbers film to appease the people. In that, though, this film still fails. The people wanted to see more about the towers themselves. Instead, we're in the towers with the firemen, and we're caught in the rubble with them. It's an interesting idea, but the film goes on way too long, and it's not what viewers wanted to see.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Rated PG-13 for intense & emotional content, some disturbing images & language.
