I Survived… 9/11 (2011)


“The North Tower came into view and I saw flames and smoke coming out of the top half of the building. It was just… unreal.” – Matt Komorowski

Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 Oct 2019)

Brief Synopsis – Interviews with numerous people who were in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon when they were hit by the planes in SEp 2001 and recount their ordeals as they fought to survive.

My Take on it – This is a film that I was curious to watch for a while but never got around to it until now.

The idea that we could hear these kind of tales first hand from the people who found a way to miraculously survive these grave ordeals is astounding in and of itself.

This film tells its story in an amazing way that allows us to feels as if we are right there with these people as they struggled to find a way to survive during that day of Hell 18 years ago.

Each of them is able to recount their tales in a very vivid way that is so descriptive that it’s chilling listening to them explain their stories.

This movie finds a way to add so much insight into the kind of peril and danger that these people and those like them needed to go through on that day.

It;s even scarier to even try and think about what those people who didn’t manage to survive must have had to go through.

This film does a wonderful job transporting us back in time to that fateful day and we get to see the events through the eyes of these courageous people who somehow found a way to make it out alive and let us see what kind of things people can go through in life and find a way to move on afterwards despite the difficulties of it all.

Bottom Line – Amazing documentary that tells its story in such a way that we feel as if we are right there with each of these people as they recount their tales of terror so vividly. The film adds so much insight into the kind of peril that people faced and it’s chilling to just think about everything that the people who didn’t manage to survive must have gone through after hearing what these survivors endured. Does a wonderful job transporting us back in time to that fateful day just via these stories and helps us focus on what really happened on that fateful day. Highly Recommended!

Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10)
