'World Trade Center'

<b>'World Trade Center'</b><br>
Director Oliver Stone, of all people, has made the story of Sept. 11 fit as closely as possible into the business-as-usual norms of sentimental studio movie-making. But the problem is not so much that this is an attempt to make a feel-good movie about a ghastly situation, it's that the result feels forced, manufactured and largely &#151; but not entirely &#151; unconvincing. Nicolas Cage, Michael Pena, Maria Bello and Maggie Gyllenhaal star. (K.Tu., Aug. 9)
