If you are expecting a film depicting the events of 9/11 then you will be very disappointed.
This film should be called 'Stuck in a Lift', because other than the fact it is set on 9/11 and the building subsequently collapses, it could be any high rise any city any time.
The characters are typical American stereotypes, so obviously chosen to try and make a film with about the dozen people in it interesting. A millionaire, a spoilt selfish brat of a wife, a very attractive feminist woman who just happens to be having an affair with an older man, a delivery guy and a maintenance man. hmm....
As for the plot. So ridiculous it's funny. The lift stops. Fair enough. But still has power and all the communications work? Then the cables snap and it falls I think 37 floors. But it stops at lobby level. Then more cables snap and it drops further. A door held closed by a solenoid, and a bolt closed escape hatch. Insulting the intelligence!
The acting is wooden and the script about as boring as it can get.
The title is nothing more than an insensitive link to tragic events to try and make a boring TV film plot appear more interesting, using the events of 9/11 to add some excitement.
It's all so so wrong...........
On the morning of September 11, 2001, a messenger sings "Happy Birthday to You" to his daughter, a billionaire argues with his wife in a divorce hearing, a maintenance man begins his day, and a young Russian decides she's breaking up with her sugar daddy. When the first plane hits the World Trade Center, these five elevator passengers find themselves trapped. Forced to band together, they fight against all odds to escape before the imminent and inevitable collapse occurs..
