The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »
(*Most moronic movie-quote of all*) - "Now... We rebuild."
Yes. I know that this was "just-a-movie" - (But, all the same) -
Whether this was a story about a natural catastrophe or about a vicious
terrorist attack - I would have seriously thought that by now
(especially after the horrific reality of 9/11) that the American
people would have had "enough already" when it came to having buildings
coming crashing down on their heads.
But, I guess, this doesn't appear to be the case - As is evident here
in this movie of total mass destruction.
And, if this wasn't puzzling and peculiar enough as it is..... When our
courageous, jock-hero, Ray uttered the line - "Now... We rebuild." (as
the American flag was being flagrantly waved in our faces) - To think
that after such a devastating disaster as the one that just occurred
(which levelled countless skyscrapers and, no doubt, caused the deaths
of millions) - There was any rational thought of actually building
again on the same shaky ground - Well - That, to me, has got to be the
ultimate moment of sheer human stupidity, if there ever was one.
