9/11: Directed by Martin Guigui. With Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Gina Gershon, Luis Guzmán. Five people find themselves trapped in an elevator during the September 11 attacks. They soon work together, never giving up hope, to try to escape before the unthinkable happens.
“Since the opening scene you get a taste of the absolute mediocrity that follows for the rest of the film. Thereu0026#39;s so much wrong with it that I really donu0026#39;t even know where to start, but the first apparent serious problem seems to be the casting choice, and thatu0026#39;s what probably made this movie fail in such disastrous proportions. This film needs to be shown in acting school as an example for how NOT to act, and Iu0026#39;m honestly very surprised that Whoopi Goldberg got herself involved in such an amateurish project, as thereu0026#39;s a big difference between supporting a cause and agreeing to be part of a mediocre production. All the performances were terrible, but Sheenu0026#39;s acting in particular is so laughably bad that by the end of the movie I felt truly embarrassed for him. The script is extremely weak and lame – the dialogue between some of the characters is stupid and totally unnecessary in moments of tension that are supposed to be serious. The so called u0026quot;comic reliefu0026quot; fails miserably and it clearly makes the scenes cringy and awkward for the actors themselves. The characters are so unlikable and annoying that at some point you actually stop caring about them, and when you have such a limited acting cast and this situation occurs you know the movie is in serious trouble. Generic camerawork and choppy editing makes the technical aspect of the production seem boring and unattractive. The overall tone of the movie is very confusing, as sometimes it feels like a low-budget horror film and other times it has the comedic vibe of a parody. All in all this has to be one of the absolute worst films of 2017.”
