^Which would carry more weight if the movie had actually paid attention to the attack and its aftermath as anything more than a bunch of CGI spectacle. It wasn't what the climax of the movie was about; it was an afterthought. You're absolutely right that that was the intent of the sequence, and indeed that was obvious from the start. But my point is that it didn't work as a commentary on 9/11 because the execution was far too superficial. The intent is clear, but the result fell vastly short.
