The 9/11 Commission Report is a 2006 American drama film by The Asylum, written and directed by Leigh Scott. The film is presented as a docudrama based on the early findings of the 9/11 Commission Report, and deals with the events prior to the September 11 attacks, and how the attack might have been avoided. Due to similar practice by The Asylum, people may consider this film a mockbuster of films like United 93 and World Trade Center.

Plot[edit]

The film takes place prior to the September 11 attacks in 2001, and though based on the findings of the actual 9/11 Commission Report made after the attacks, the film fictionalizes some elements of the report for the sake of artistic license.

The film focuses on three main characters: Mike (Rhett Giles) a CIA agent, Jack (Jeff Denton) a diplomatic spook, and Valerie (Sarah Lieving) an FBI agent. All three characters work in unconnected jobs on behalf of the U.S. Government, and begin to receive disturbing reports and warnings that the United States could be the target for a terrorist attack.

Their efforts to warn the government go unrecognized, and all three are threatened with dismissal for attempting to spread mass hysteria. At this time, the September 11 attacks are made against the World Trade Center. It is then realized that, had the trio been taken seriously, the attack could have been avoided.
