| Don't get the angle of this movie....
My main question regards the motivation behind this story. Firstly, does it aim to provide an informative account of Rudy or simply cash in on September 11? Moreover, if his biography is intended to be paramount , I am not sure whether it glorifies or condemn his character.

On the whole, i thought this movie was poor. The production values were terrible, to say the very least. As was the handling of the events of September 11. To include such emotive footage of that day is dangerous, especially when Rudy exclaims "what have these bastards done to my city?". From an objective standpoint this line was simply ectopic in the context of the movie, almost adding light to the situation. The following "women and children first" dialogue seems misplaced in the terror and hysteria of the situation.
