No...I personally think it is unethical, and to soon to capitalize on such an event. JMHO.

No because I know this really happened and I can't watch human suffering. When all of this was right there, live and direct in our faces, we saw in our minds eye the horror these people went thru. I don't need to see it in my face again. Let these people rest, in peace.

I do not expect I will be able to watch anything like this for another 20 or 30 years or so.

I voted undecided, because that best defines my position. I can see arguments on both sides.

Interestingly enough, they are offering free admission to all emergency personnel and first responders (of which I qualify). That doesn't mean I'll go though . . . .

I'm not sure. I don't know if I can watch a re-enactment of what happened.
Going through it once was bad enough.

No.
I don't want to feel the way I felt on 9-11 ever again.

I watched it happen..

Saw it, as it happened, and then, from home, saw the smoke to the right , in the sky, for days. Listened to the sirens for 48 hours passing my home, as they turned Giant's Stadium into a pseudo morgue/staging area. Spoke on a cell phone as a friend was running down the South Tower stairway, assuring me he was alright.

Yes, I'd watch that movie because I find the enormity of that day awe inspiring. The events of that day changed the lives of more people in modern history than any other day. The world changed that day, and if you watch, you can see it happen. Nicholas Cage, as an actor, is a decent guy, with pretty good ethics. He's picked his roles pretty carefully and based on that I'm going to believe (until otherwise shown) that the portrayal of this day is accurate.

No, I won't be able to watch it. It is hard to explain why.

I doubt I'll see the movie..We live far from that horror,but, I can remember how eerie the night sky was when no planes were allowed to fly, the quiet and how it made you stop and think of all those who were now in eternal silence..Then too, I feel making a profit from others pain and suffering is wrong.. Ah if only hate had no place in our world.
