There are a few earlier scenes, specifically the scene in Philly, that is reminiscent of the 9/11 attack and a later sequence that references Flight 93. There are also nods to 9/11 conspiracy theories where Israel had foreknowledge of the attacks.

This movie has a full section of pro-Israel, pro-apartheid sequences that erase the Palestinian struggle. The real-life apartheid walls in Israel are painted as necessary and an act of extreme benevolence.

Several car crashes at the beginning of the film. No main characters die in one.

You can see the main plane crash coming, but several helicopters crash as well. The plane crash is pretty intense.
