It took me a day to decide to watch the trailer. Just that few minutes has kinda ruined my day. It has brought back a flood of memories that I thought I was past. You really can't imagine what that day was like. The fear and bewilderment that was etched on everyone's faces. The uncertainty. The smell of that smoke that hung in the air for more than a week. The need to be close to people and distant at the same time. Worrying if it was safe to take the subway. Week after week hearing the motorcycle escorts leading ambulances from the West Side, past my apartment, to the morgue at Bellevue.<br><br>Nope. Living through it was bad enough. I think I'll pass.<br><br>
Loc: United States
I'm close enough to the city to understand - not completely experience everything that you did, obviously, but my wife and I have friends & family that were in the immediate area & had to run for their lives that day, and one family friend who worked in the North Tower for Cantor/Fitzgerald. <br><br>I watched the trailer, and got the impression that the movie would be, well, sort of schlocky. I'll see it - maybe not in the movies - if it's a well-enough made flick, but I would hate to think that Oliver Stone is exploiting some deep-rooted emotions and didn't make a well-constructed piece of film in the process.<br><br>Bottom line for me - if it's not hokey, I'll give it a go. But the trailer - and Cage's delivery- isn't giving me much hope for that. <br><br>
Like most Stone movies it looks great. That is to say the cinematography looks great. But, the dialogue just makes you groan. The problem (for me) with films like this and Flight 93 is that are someone's interpretation of an important even in history. And therefore fiction. But, with time stories like these will become the official story. You know, the English came to MA and sat down with the Indians and had the first Thanksgiving. And they lived happily ever after.<br><br>
