From three-time Academy Award winner Oliver Stone comes this inspiring true story about courage, family and our nation's unyielding spirit. Oscar winner Nicolas Cage and Michael Pena stars as John McLoughlin and Will Jimeno, two New Yoek City Port Authority policemen who were trapped in the rubble of September 11, 2001. As McLoughlin and Jimeno bond together in a fight for survival, the events of an unimaginable day unfold through the eyes of the two policemen, their loving wives, survivors and rescuers throughout the city.


The mysterious Nicholas Cage is alternatively over-rated and under-rated in his films by many audiences. It is worth remembering, though, that his best movies are usually those where the story takes precedence over individual performances. The story about September 11 is one such example.

Under the direction of the famously heavy-handed Oliver Stone, WTC is surprisingly unadorned and plain, but delivers its emotional payload pretty effectively. While it seems like all the actors in this movie were cast for expressive eyes, Nicholas Cage, with those searching blue eyes, is the king of them all. At times he is able to show fear, shock and courage in a simple look at the top right hand corner of the screen. Michael Pena is an accomplished everyman actor that I appreciate more with each of his thorough portrayals.

WTC started off quite documentary-like, but things turn teary when the family is involved, and that is when I remember this is not United 93, but a Hollywood tale of survival, hope and courage (this phrase doesn’t work in print, and it doesn’t work in film).


This edition includes commentary by director Oliver Stone, another one by the real-life survivor and heroes Will Jimeno, Scott Strauss, John Busching and Paddy McGee as well as some deleted/extended scenes. The second commentary is worth a listen.


Spotless visual transfer with English or Thai audio and five subtitle selections.
