Rated NR

Drama, Historical
Oliver Stone hasn’t made a decent movie in 12 years. His last “OK” movie was Natural Born Killers (1994), an insane picture that probably worked because the man behind the camera was nuts. Since then, he’s churned out piece of crap after piece of crap, including the JFK-wannabe Nixon, U Turn and, worst of all, Alexander. No doubt, Stone is capable of greatness, and the good news is that this is his best film since Natural Born Killers. The bad news would be that it still isn’t a very good movie. Nicolas Cage and Michael Peña do their best as Port Authority police officers John McLoughlin and Will Jimeno, two men who were trapped in the rubble of the collapsed towers on Sept. 11. Their performances are strong, and the film’s beginning is decent, but once the officers are trapped, the film becomes standard TV movie-of-the-week fare. Stone was the wrong choice to direct this movie.
