Movie Review: World Trade Center

We recently went to see the new Oliver Stone movie, “World Trade Center“.  There have been various reviews — both good and bad — in the Washington Post, New York Times, etc.   Frankly, I must admit that I had a very different reaction to the movie than most.  First, the movie was nicely crafted.  The choreography, acting, and so on were well done.  Second, the story and the events of 9/11 are just a backdrop that really aren’t essential to the theme or message of the movie. 

In my view, the movie was primarily a story of heroism and survival under very difficult circumstances.  Overall, I would give the movie a solid B.
