Bloody Sunday director Paul Greengrass marks the five-year anniversary on the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States with this speculative meditation on the events that took place onboard the fourth hijacked plane, and the actions of the passengers who gave their lives to ensure the safety of others. Told in real time and acted out by a cast of unknowns who were provided with detailed studies of their real-life counterparts, United 93 attempts to reconstruct the airborne tragedy from the view of the ground and flight controllers, the passengers, and their nervous families awaiting word on the fate of their loved ones. As the terrified travelers and crew gradually become aware of the historical events taking place on the ground so far beneath them, the 90 minutes in which a random collection of strangers realized their fate and came together to confront an unthinkable threat are re-created.~Jason Buchanan

United 93 is simply the best made film about the tragedy that is 9/11. It is no nonsense, and mostly takes part in real time. Even some of the actual individuals involved in the moments portrayed play themselves.
A narrative shot like a documentary and even including actual people who were doing their jobs that fateful day within the film. This is kind of rare to see. Paul Greengrass did an excellent job trying to tell the right story of actually what happened on 9/11 between the communications of the United States and piecing together any bit of evidence that was available. Generally a tribute movie is usually not a great idea so soon after this incident, and rightfully so, but with the permission of the families that are portrayed in the film giving their blessing, Greengrass gave something that helps us grieve together. I think that it what makes this movie unique.
United 93 tells more than the story of those people who were on United 93 on September 11, 2001. It tells the story of the air traffic controllers, the military response, the hijackers, and more. It is an extremely well made film and it puts you into places that you were never aware about. It tells of specific events on 9/11 that the news media never told about. It comes across as a documentary, not as a film, which adds to the tension and overall feel of the film. I have a hard time watching this film, but I watch it because it reminds me of what happened, what heroes do in an almost impossible situation, and what we are capable of as human beings on the positive and the negative side. If you haven't seen United 93 for some reason, WATCH THIS MOVIE. Many people in the film are played by the actual people who were doing the job on 9/11. Authenticity was very important and the director (Paul Greengrass of Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum) actually asked each family member about doing the film before actually shooting the film. This movie was made in memory of those aboard United 93 and all those who lost their lives or lost someone on 9/11. Again, WATCH THIS MOVIE!!
Dedicated to the heros who stood up to the terrorists on the airliner who would have crashed in to the Capital or the White House if it were not for their heroics

Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Great presentation of a hard to watch film.
This emotional film is even more difficult to watch because it is actually a true story. Because it is a true story, I consider it a must watch for every American. We shall never forget 9/11.
Outstanding sound and picture quality make for a very immersive viewing experience.
