It is hard to say why this movie is getting negative reviews. Like many people, I saw the trailer, and Charlie Sheen and many question marks popped up. Aside from that, the trailer caught my interest. I'll start with the cast first.

Charlie Sheen has a knock out performance in this film. It is hard to watch him at times, knowing the health issues he is dealing with. Sheen is very much entrenched into his character. At times, you can't help but notice he has a lot of make-up on. I wonder if this was done on purpose. He plays his character with deep emotion and at times; I wondered if he wasn't making amends for his own personal demons as well as apologizing for his stance on 9/11. Regardless, he play his character with passion and appropriate emotion.

Whoopi Goldberg: Sensational and knock's her performance out of the park. Like Sheen, she played her character with passion and emotion. The only time you get a glimpse at her personal political views, is when she's watching George Bush on TV speaking about the terror attacks. The confused look on her face, like many at the time read "why is he talking about going after the bad guys, when we're here dealing with this right now".

The rest of the cast, equally plays their parts the same way. Every actor, and I mean every, did a wonderful job. At times, there are comparison between the characters in the elevator with today's issues. You'll see for yourself, and by no means is tasteless. It really just boils down to seeing these people, slowly wake up to what was happening to them, and trying to get out of that building.

The movie by no means is big budget. This isn't the towering inferno. Nor is it fast paced. It's people trapped in an elevator inside the World Trade Center on 9/11. I cannot understand where the negative reviews come from. Has enough time passed that, if a movie - even about 9/11, doesn't have enough explosions and car chases that we cannot enjoy it? This movie reuses footage, yes. A good touch, it will bring you back to that day. There is a scene where one of the characters gets a hold of her mom. The Mom becomes responsible for calling the trapped victim's families and telling them what is happening to them. And that they love their family very much. All while they are watching the world trade center on the television. Knowing, like all of us, that day there were thousands still inside the buildings.

The movie brought back many memories for me. The cast did an excellent job and the ending was very moving. I did get teary eyed many times throughout the film. I highly recommend this "9/11" film. It was done with taste and emotion. And yes, I'll never forget.
