    I just watched the trailer for this and it looks absolutely amazing. I have never actually been moved by a trailer in my life until I saw this. The fact that this is true and looks absolutely incredibly filmed makes it even better. can't wait to see this.:bowdown:

    I dunno but the trailer looked kinda dumb... maybe its Nicholas Cages mustache. Why the heck would they make a fucking movie out of it anyway?

    I think its burned into everybodys head anyway... even 5 years after I can remember 9\11 and all the tv and news coverage. Shrug.

    So, why is it about 2 cops that got burried... why not about someone from inside the building... an office worker, a janitor... why not about firemen... why the police?

    Definitely not gonna watch it.

    If you wanna watch something good about 9\11 there is a documentary from 2 guys (Jules and Gedeon Naudet) that made a movie about a new yorker rookie firefighter. They went there with those guys shortly after it happened... filmed everything, were right in the middle of it... that stuff is good cos they were actually there. Its the only footage from inside the WTC.

    That or another documentary called "Loose Change" which I heard will also be playing in theaters soon, hopefully this year. You can however, see the full length feature online for free as well.

    actually this movie is about Port Authority rescue workers. And it's based on the true story of these two guys being trapped underneath the rubble after going in to save people. William Jimeno was pulled out after 12 hours; John McLoughlin came out after 22 hours. and they were consulted throughout the production process.

    ask them if they think it's propaganda.

    You're pretty ignorant in the fact that this is a hollywood production. Hollywood is basically socialist. They hate bush. If anything there will be a few jabs at bush at the minimum.

    I saw part of loose change and had to walk away. It's the most ludicrous shit. On par with michael moore. Basically anyone with a brain.....don't waste your time.

    pints i understand your skepticism but you should know that Oliver Stone collaborated very closely with the two main characters and others involved in the rescue efforts. And that this is based on the story of those folks, not an embellished tale.

    I am surprised they are relasing it so early. They should have released it closer to the anniversary of 9/11.

    Well I think they're trying to avoid the hype. I think it looks great!
     
  11. Yes I agree this movie was made way too soon so that Oliver Stone could make some money. Didn't see Flight 93 even though the families endorsed that, definitely won't see this movie. Very shameless.

    I think it will be a dissapointment. The trailer doesnt even look that powerful to me and I doubt they can drag that emotion for a whole 1.5 hour

    i dont know what the fuck you are trying to say here, but theres nothing wrong with being proud to be an american. I hope you are, but i think you should just move to canada anyways. You think this movie is bush propaganda? i dont think so. Its hollywood. I can't remember the last time i saw a movie that actually favored republicans, let alone bush

    I went to an early screening last week and it's really too bad people don't do more research about this film prior to blindly trashing it. It's not overly patriotic, stone's directorial decisions are top-notch, and politics are completely absent.

    Oh, and if you doubt the film's ability to be heart-wrenching and emotional for the whole time, get ready to be surprised. This a powerful masterpiece.

    Loose Change was pretty convencing for a while. Then everyone started proving it wrong and it started coming out how it misquoted stuff. I used to have a few links on magazines and websites that disprove Loose Change. Convenitenly Maddox just happened to post the links to 2 articles de-bunking many of the "facts" in Loose Change. Someone said it was on par with Micheal Moore and they are right. I'm not a Bush supporter at all but come on now, you can't watch some movie made by a 20 something year old and say "omg he's right" with out actually looking up facts yourself.
