What the world categorically isn’t crying out for is a movie about 9/11 starring Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg, but thanks to some Japanese production company that is what we have now been blessed with.

Charlie Sheen is pretty a weird choice for the lead in the movie, considering he’s previously come out and said that 9/11 was an inside job:
We’re not the conspiracy theorists on this issue. It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 per cent of the targets – that feels like a conspiracy theory.
I’ve done a lot of research. And it’s not just me. It’s the people that have come before me, the experts, the engineers, the physicists, the scientists and the scholars that raised a lot of these things. And I took a look at their research and said, ‘Yeah, it doesn’t add up’.
Right. It seems strange to make a movie about events that you categorically question even happening the way they’re depicted in the movie, but I guess a gig is a gig these days for Charlie Sheen. Maybe he was won over by the incredibly powerful script, based on the voice messages left on phones by people who were actually in the tower?
To be honest, probably not because it doesn’t exactly look like Sheen is giving it his all from the trailer below. The movie looks overly dramatic and terrible, despite having a cast that would probably have been quite impressive 20 years ago:
“Sweetie, the building is coming down” has to be my favourite part of that trailer. Think I’m probably going to give the movie a miss though considering it looks absolutely terrible and I pretty much got exactly what was going to happen from that trailer. I’m wondering why it even got made to be honest.
