i am definately going to see it, i dont like the idea of the actors getting paid, i think the money should be the victims families, but i also believe that stories need to be told, from every angle, and however possible.

$0.02

not for free, but the actors dont need to be making in the millions. i think the movie should be made. i dont know if some profits are going to families or not, but either way, they should be

Like I said before ... I won't support this movie. It's disrespectful to make a movie like this at this point in time.

I saw an advanced screening of World Trade Center last night, and I was very impressed. I went into it unbiased, deciding that I would indeed like to hear the story of what happened to the two officers this movie is about, and I would take it for what it is, regardless of whether or not people think it's still too soon.

This is a very moving and intense look at the story of the officers' ordeal as well as what their families had to go through. Of course, the viewer is reminded of a lot that happened on that day, and it is disturbing, sad, and angering just as the real events were. However, the movie makes no attempt at all to explain what happened or give some great message to the world about terrorism, government, or war. It's more of a character study and simply a look at a terrible event from several perspectives.

The acting is superb, and I have more respect for Nicholas Cage after this movie than I did going into it. There are some very intense moments, and moments that, as I've said, are angering and disturbing, but not to make the viewer want to walk away, but simply to be angry that these events had to occur in the first place.

Thankfully, there are several moments of humor throughout the movie, to give the viewer a break perhaps, but they work well.
I gave this movie a 7 out of 10 because the writing at times was not all that it could have been, especially some of the dialogue. Overall, the acting is great and the characters feel real, but in some scenes you may feel like the sentimentality is being forced and doesn't feel genuine.

I will recommend this movie to people who are not dead set against it, or someone who is just looking for exactly what it is: a movie made for entertainment and as a tribute to those that died.
research helps

You know the actors/producers and everyone else involved won't give the money they make to the families of the victims, Fire Fighters and Police, that died trying to help and save the ones they could.

im gonna go see it, enjoy it, and tell people what i think of it. i dont see how it is insulting, and if the money goes to the actors i dont care 1 way or the other about it, would be very nice if it went to the families, but im not gonna go yell at the creators if it doesnt.
