World Trade Center (2006)

Written By Awir Aditya on Friday, January 29, 2010 | 1:11 AM


Genre: Drama/History/Biography

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Michael Pena, Maria Bello, Maggie Gyllenhall

A true life story of Port Authority Police Department officers, Will Jimeno (Pena) and John McLoughlin (Cage) who went to the World Trade Centre compound to evacuate the building, only to get trapped under 20 feet of debris when the buildings collapsed. The story of their families and their wives Donna McLoghlin (Bello) and Allison Jimeno (Gyllenhall) and the 20 hour misery that they both went through. Most of the story revolves around John and Will being trapped inside and how they kept each other alive and were the only support they had. This is again one of those movies that needs time before you can start appreciating it. The movie is very emotional, which truly comes out only in the end. Good performance by the entire cast helped the movie to get more acclaim. They movie fixed itself to the story of only two individuals which was probably a let down. Narrating the story of various families, each of whom had to suffer in one way or another could have made the movie more appealing.

Thumbs up: Good performances
Thumbs down: Story has room for improvisation

Rating: 7.2/10
