5 Movies That Honor 9/11

By Movieguide® Staff

Today marks the 21st anniversary of the infamous attacks at the World Trade Center. During this time, we continue to pray for all those who sacrificed and fought so bravely for the sake of the U.S. Below are some movies that honor 9/11…

Warning: Some of these movies contain strong subject matter, so caution or even extreme caution is warranted, even for older teenagers and adults…

 

THE PATH TO 9/11

Quality:

Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
THE PATH TO 9/11, a TV show airing in September, tells the story of what led up to the terrorist destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, starting with the WTC bombing in 1993. THE PATH TO 9/11 is a fascinating story with a strong Christian worldview and very strong conservative, moral elements. It is some of the best television that has been produced in years.

EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE is a very powerful movie about the impact of 9/11 on a 9-year-old boy who lost his father and finds a mysterious key that may lead to a special message from his dad. Despite some slurred foul language and lying, EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE is a stirring, profound, remarkable, and uplifting movie with a lot of heart.

WORLD TRADE CENTER

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
WORLD TRADE CENTER tells the story of two New York City Port Authority officers on Sept. 11, who get trapped underneath the rubble of the World Trade Center, and the reactions of their families. WORLD TRADE CENTER is a stirring, suspenseful, patriotic, and ultimately inspiring portrayal of a sobering day in America's history. It contains a very strong Christian worldview with very strong morally uplifting, pro-family content, but its major drawback is too much foul language.

UNITED 93

Quality:
****
Content:
-2 Extreme caution for older teenagers and adults.
UNITED 93 is a tense, emotionally powerful docudrama about the Islamic terrorist attacks on 9/11, which focuses on the American passengers of Flight 93, the East Coast flight controllers and the Flight 93 terrorists. Many Americans probably are still not ready to relive the terrible events of that day, but UNITED 93 is a brilliant, realistic portrayal of what happened that contains, however, plenty of strong foul language and tense, emotional scenes which may be too disturbing for many.

12 STRONG

Quality:
***
Content:
-2 Extreme caution for older teenagers and adults.
12 STRONG is a war movie about America’s first skirmishes with the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan in 2001 and 2002, with strong patriotic content and values. 12 STRONG could have been a great movie if it had not meandered so much and presented too much foul language and so many references to the Muslim faith without much Christian or biblical faith.
