Description

A defining day in our history. It's an event that shook the world. Honest, unflinching and profoundly moving, United 93 tells the unforgettable story of the heroic passengers and crew members who prevented the terrorists from carrying out their plans for the fourth hijacked plane on September 11, 2001. As on-ground military and civilian teams scrambled to make sense of the unfolding events, forty people sat down as strangers found the courage to stand up as one.

  • Quite good.

    Quite good in terms of the suspense and drama created although I feel the stewardesses were unfairly portrayed as being weak while the men took over and were strong. I also think the German passenger was unfairly depicted as being " wimpy" next to the American tough guys.
  • Wow, Heart Beating!

    I'm ex military and don't normally subscribe to this type of film. However, I loved this film. It is a a powerful portrayal of what must have been a terrifying ordeal. Would highly recommend watching United 93.

    I still remember seeing this film at the cinema - truly one of the most intense and affecting films I've ever seen.

    This isn't an enjoyable film. It portrays the events that everyone is familiar with in an intense and realistic way and by the end I felt drained and beaten down, but therein lies the brilliance. I won't lie, this is an incredibly powerful piece of drama which should become required viewing for the future's students of 21st Century history. Greengrass' style is never gratuitous, just unflinching and as close to the actual events as anyone will ever be able to document on film.

    Brilliantly executed, very moving and powerful. Not a well known cast but they play their roles very well.
  • Definately worth seeing.

    It could have been so easy to fall into the trap of making everyone an all american hero but Greengrass tells the story without any embellishment, making it all too human. I was wary when I first read about it but I thought it was handled extremely well.
  • it's too sad

    Brilliant movie this. Greengrass knows his stuff. See his Bourne action fictions. But when he makes movies based on truth (like Bloody Sunday) then there's this extra 'magic' ingredient. This is a sad woe od=f a tale (10th anniversary today). Haunting heroic human. The motive to make something like this ? I don't have an answer.
