Alexandria, VAUpon previewing the
upcoming Paramount Pictures film, World Trade Center, Brent
Bozell of the Media Research Center issued the following statement:
World Trade Center is a masterpiece and must be seen by as many people as possible. Oliver Stone has created something spectacular and it deserves our nations gratitude. Conservatives and liberals will praise this movie.
For just a few hours following the attacks of September 11th, political ideologies fell by the wayside, Bozell continued. Americans came together for a rare moment to recognize the significance and fragility of life and liberty. This film captures that moment in time and honors the true essence of selfless love witnessed on that fateful day. Its more than a movie its a vivid reminder of the love, heroism, faith and patriotism that comprise the fabric of our country.
World Trade Center tells the true story of two Port Authority police officers (portrayed by Nicholas Cage and Michael Pena) who volunteered to assist with the rescue of people trapped in the World Trade Center on 9/11 only to become buried alive in the rubble themselves. The story chronicles their heroic actions and how their faith, families, and new friendship kept them alive.
