Both long for the end of the summer, having nothing in common but their love for dogs, notably Adam's precious champion sheepdog Bob.

(ru) wrote: Gritty, brutal and unimaginative. I typically enjoy this sub-genera but this movie missed the mark entirely. Extremely distasteful and absolutely no depth or deviation from from the original remake.
(jp) wrote: There's not much I can really say about this movie, except that it was interesting and Jessica Chastain can give a good performance with any material she is given.
(ag) wrote: A SyFy Channel movie so you know it is low budget and the effects are going to be fairly below average. Taking that into consideration, this is a poor man's version of Armageddon, which is one of my favorites. The acting here is acceptable. The story is plausible but highly unlikely. The characters are not really fleshed out, but are likeable nonetheless. I got caught up enough in the tension of the situation to enjoy myself. Worth a watch if you keep your expectations low.

(it) wrote: Directed by Oliver Stone, whose upfront and confrontational brand of film making gave him notoriety. With this true story based on what happened when the Twin Towers fell, it could have been another attack on American politics, but it's not. This is sensitive and very suspenseful tale of survival, and it shows a different side to Stone, one he's been dabbling with ever since. On September 11th 2001, Port Authority Police officers John McLoughlin (Nicolas Cage) and Will Jimeno (Michael Pea) notice a plane flying low over Manhattan. McLoughlin and Jimeno accompany many officers to the scene, and by the time they get there, a second plane has hit the other tower. McLoughlin and Jimeno work fast to get people out of the North Tower, but while they do that, the tower collapses, leaving them trapped in the elevator shaft. Their wives Donna McLoughlin (Maria Bello) and Allison Jimeno (Maggie Gyllenhaal) struggle to come to terms with what's happen, and just hope that their husbands are still alive under the rubble. This is a very good film, and this isn't Stone talking down to us, he's asking us to observe this tale of survival. He could have done a dark expose of 9/11, blaming Bush's government for it all, but he doesn't. It's Stone's most sensitive film to date, and one that shows not everything he makes has to be riddled with anger.
