This is the most touching movie I've seen on this site so far. The ending was amazing, but if there were some scenes cut at the beginning I think it would have been better.

I thought it was really well done. I despise terrorism, because so many innocent people die for no reason. But there are two sides to the coin. The US could be considered terrorists because we have also killed many innocent people because of a war, started mainly because of terrorist act(Other reasons also, but I won't go into that) If they would stop with the terrorism, maybe things would become a little more peaceful. Who knows. Overall, great job with the editing and story.

Don't listen to the "Bush Youth League" who might condemn your movie purely on it's source material. You managed to make a touching film. I was going to give you four stars until the countdown in the ending, which was one of the better scenes i'll ever seen on this site. it was a compelling movie but your bound to get people who just fail to see the tragedy and only see the villainy. those people are missing out.

I was surprised to find that this was actually quite good. I don't think people are getting this. I don't see it glorifying terrorism at all. I see a stark view of people's lives being destroyd.

Althought I'm not a big fan of terrorist attacks, lol, I do give you credit for making a movie very well done, even without any VO's or subtitles. Good job!
Also, please take time to watch my latest movie, "The Adventures of Jesus 1"

Excellent. A touching and scary film at the same time. Even the small continuity error (no briefcase in the hall) doesn't detract from the final product. Well done.

It was good, it just wasn't great, I'm don't it moved to slow, if it had moved faster it would of seemed like a very sudden ending. Anyway, I thought it was good but not for me really.

A sad and powerful silent movie. It has many technical flaws and continuity errors (the disappearing briefcase; no people in the subway car when he sets the bomb etc.), so I only wanted to give 3 or 4 stars, but the last thirty seconds changed everything. You masterfully selected the final scenes before the detonation; I felt myself totally helpless and I was grieving for all those innocent people. Your ending has a great emotional impact, and the custom backgrounds help it greatly. This movie would deserve to be a hot pick.

Being from NYC, and having lived a stone throw from the WTC, this hits home for me. I feel no sympathy for people like this, however it was a very well put together little movie and for that I applaud you.

Hmmm a difficult movie to review due to your choice of subject matter. Technically good. Perhaps the terrorists character could have been more developed, but I appreciate it is a touchy subject.

Very well done! Great job on the ending. In my opinion you handled this difficult topic in a very tasteful way. You didn`t glorify terrorism but also didn`t force the opposite opinion on the viewer. In the ending you pointed towards the human tragedy and left the judgement to the viewer. That`s what makes this movie really convincing and strong! Because like in real life there are two sides to the story. But violence is no solution.

You took a difficult theme subject, but managed to make a touching movie. The countdown really hurt me, knowing what would happen to the couple and their baby.

I despise terrorism, (I almost lost my father in the Pentagon attack, that may have something to do with it) but I don't think you're trying to glorify terrorism with this film. You obviously wanted to show what went on in the terrorist's head before the act, which is a very noble cause. A lot of people accused the real-life film "The Downfall" of portraying Hitler in the sentimental light, when in fact they were just trying to portray Hitler as a human being, not a caricature.

I was torn between giving your movie 3 or 4 stars, mainly because to some degree I feel that you almost but just barely reached your objective. The terrorist looking at the family photo before the attack was well done, but I feel like there should have been more. Perhaps more signs of contemplation, perhaps almost not doing it, who knows? The thing is all sensible people know terrorists have families, that's a given. What else is it about them that makes it human? What makes them more than a name on the 5:00 news?

I ultimately decided to give you 4 stars because you DID put a lot of effort into this film, and three stars only go to average jobs, which this was not. I hope to see more films done by you in the future, because I see a lot of great potential.

Unfortnetely I was letdown while I was watching this. It appears that the reason you have created this movie was due to the controversial to its subject matter and hence, just the title of this movie is the only thing which is carrying it. I felt the silent-movie approach didn't help as it would of been effective if we get some insight of what the character is thinking during getting ready in a form of sub-titles or VO. Although the ending slightly made up for it due to some good editing, it appears you had little knowledge of the subject matter and just did a movie of a guy brooming himself but doing "his task" in the subway. If you choose a subject matter that you feel you have insight in then shoot that and I look forward to your next project but this one didn't do it for me.

I will not rate the topic, since that would be stupid.

As a movie though, youre on to something great. Now, however its not great. its good, but not great.

This is manily, due to the fact, that while the ending is strong, the start is way to slow to fit in with the ending.
Also, the shooting of the police, seems completly uncalled for. Why, may the audience wonder.

The fact that the movie was silent, I feel worked as an advantage. Good one there.
Good editing.

The last new reporter thingy, was mayhep cool, but I think it took the edge of, the climax of the movie. the countdown and the explosion in the dark.

The only good thing about this movie is that the suicide bomber must have died as well. I just watched Munich by Spielburg, and while that really is an unfair comparison it's almost like watching the same good guys vs muslims dispute from the other side of the coin. Still, borderline racism aside, 3 stars. I would give you 2, but im afraid you'd fly a plane into my house.

This was a tricky one to rate...
It was very slow to start, the fact that it's a silent movie didn't help, on the otherhand you're a brave man for tackling terrorism as a subject even on a shallow level.
The editing was pretty solid and it did build up a some tension towards the end.

Guy gets up, brushes teeth, has a coffee, smokes a cigarette, blows up a subway.
A bit too "day in the life of.." with no real consideration of any of the arguments that make up this complex issue.
Some good editing techniques, but maybe you should try a different subject matter. One that you actually know something about.
