World Trade Center was my favorite 9/11 movie so far, in contrast to United 93, which took all my will power to watch. Both movies are full of tragedy but WTC has a happy ending that makes you feel satisfied at the final closure.
I pride myself on my immunity to gory movies, but in United 93, there is just too much evil. The director is so good focusing on what might otherwise be mundane -- filling the planes with fuel, chit-chat among flight attendents talking about plans for next weekend, an elderly woman taking pills before takeoff. It just left me feeling sick, during and afterwards -- sick with rage, of course, but also just a hopeless sense of frustration.
WTC on the other hand was much easier to watch. It doesn't feel at all like an Oliver Stone movie -- no conspiracies, no dark and evil personalities -- just normal people caught up in an extraordinary circumstance and glad in the end to be alive.
