Five individuals – a billionaire businessman; his estranged wife; a bike messenger; a young executive; and a building maintenance worker – find themselves trapped in an elevator in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001. After an unknown event jolts their elevator car to a stop, the story unfolds as the group slowly learns what is happening in the outside world. Their lone contact is with the building’s elevator systems operator, who works to guide them, via intercom, as they attempt to escape to safety. This gripping story of hope, faith, and perseverance showcases the light of the human spirit in the darkest of hours.

Reviews
  • Thewrap.com: It's Gershon who really shines here. Her telephone scene with Jacqueline Bisset, as her mother, carries the power and the tragedy of those real-life calls we heard that day from the World Trade Center; that moment, and a later exchange between Bisset and Prestyn Bates as Jeffrey and Eve’s son, go a long way toward giving “9/11” the dramatic impact it needs.
  • Marcfusion.com: Retains that small scale, personal scope, even within the massive, world changing scope of events of 9/11.
  • Stevethemovieman: highlighting a lot of recognizable actors giving above-average performances.

Reviews
  • 1nfluxmagazine.com: Director Richard Gray has outdone himself with his latest effort, with no small thanks to scriptwriter Michele Davis-Gray. And backed by such a strong and experienced cast, it's no surprise The Lookalike turned out so entertaining. It was good seeing the prolific John Savage and Scarface co-star Steven Bauer back on form. Another reason I had such a fun time with this somewhat busy film, was down to the fact everyone knew not to take anything too seriously and simply enjoy the ride, as I suggest you also do. Highly entertaining!
  • Cinemadeviant.com: complex, full of suspense and had plenty of thrills with a great group of actors.
