The tragic events of 9/11 have inspired several movies. Tales of heroism, fear and politics. These movies pay tribute to our fallen heroes, show the tension in the air after the events, the politics that led up to it and predicted the atmosphere after terrorism.

5. Fahrenheit 9/11

Michael Moore made an excellent documentary about the political climates both before and after 9/11. The movie almost cost Bush the Presidency with its clever narration and uses of footage.

The movie was both poignant and clever and captured Bush’s first term and how he used the fears generated by 9/11 to drive the unjust and unnecessary wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The movie captured the fear and anger after 9/11 and how it was misused by our politicians.

4. United 93

This movie covers the heroism of the passengers of United 93 who fought off the hijackers on 9/11, possibly saving thousands of lives, including those in the White House. The movie performed moderately at the box office but was critically acclaimed.

3. World Trade Center

Directed by Oliver Stone and starring Nicholas Cage, World Trade Center is a disaster movie based around the aftermath of the planes hitting the World Trade Center. The movie centers around two Port Authority Officers and their efforts to save victims on 9/11.

2. 25th Hour

Though the 25th Hour is not about the 9/11 tragedy, the aftershocks of it are felt throughout the movie. Filmed right after 9/11 and released a year later, the aftermath of 9/11 is felt throughout the movie from the remains of ground zero to the posters of the missing and memorials to those who were killed.

1. The Siege

Despite the fact that “The Siege” was filmed three years before 9/11, it accurately predicted the paranoia, overreaction and loss of liberties that 9/11 would bring. In the movie after the FBI office is bombed, and Islamic terror cells begin plaguing America, Muslims are rounded up into internment camps.
