World Trade Center
I should warn you that it is quite distressing watching it. That moment with Michael Pena looking out at New York, however, was the moment that struck me and it's just at the very start. It's hard to get a guage on how audiences will react to this movie because it would appear that it's going to be much more emotional than United 93. The presence of Nicolas Cage is a bit offputting (which makes me think the use of non-actors in 93 was an even better decision) As if it's putting Nicolas' face onto 9/11, i dunno. The women (Maria Bello and Maggie Gyllenhaal) look like they're gonna be great. Umm... yeah, I still don't know how I'm gonna feel about it until I see it.
I'm not sure if making this a double feature with Snakes on a Plane is such a good idea though.
