Product Description

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 who sat down as strangers found the courage to stand up as one.

I am writing this review to elaborate on the review issued by Amazon. The reviewer gives a mild endorsement of this brilliant film on the grounds that United 93's lack of catharsis leaves the viewer unsatisfied. Without catharsis, it is alleged that the horror depicted in the film is pointless. This argument misinterprets the film. The film powerfully captures existentialist ideas about making decisions when stripped of all other options. Quick editing, the use of steady-cams and shooting the action in real time are filmic techniques used masterfully to capture the intensity of having to make the drastic choices the people on United 93 had to make. Catharsis is an overused concept and I hope my review helps to clarify that United 93 is interested in the existential side of the tragedy in Pennsylvania. Rather than exploit the deaths of the passengers on that ill-fated flight five years ago to emotionally satisfy contemporary audiences, United 93 chooses to dramatize the hope present when people make difficult decisions under horrendous circumstances and avert a possible attack on the White House. Paul Greengrass deserves nothing but praise for this masterpiece.

This has to be one of the saddest films I have ever seen. Deeply moving, and shocking at the same time, it left me literally gasping at the end.

The Director, Paul Greengrass, has done an outstanding job in bringing together all the disparate elements and peoples of this true story - the control towers, the military, and the passengers of this fateful flight. He weaves it all together in a gutwrenching patchwork of the shock and disbelief of the planes being hi-jacked, the twin towers in flames, and the passengers in the hands of merciless suicide terrorists. It pulls you in so much, that you feel again and again the utter, appalling shock and sadness of these occurrences. I found myself just as deeply effected as if 9/11 was happening all over again. I was so saddened that none of the passengers survived. I so wanted them to, even though we know that none did. The film has that effect on you as well; even though we know the outcome, it is as compelling as if we did not. And I admired their heroism so much. Would any of us be so brave?

The impact of this film is tremendous, and I highly recommend it be viewed. Lest we forget.

This movie was a completely inaccurate representation of Flight 93 hijacking by Ziad Jarrah.
- Only the pilot knew English. The pilots in 9/11 were all chosen because of their education and knowledge of the West.
- They didn't have bombs; kind of hard to fly a plane into a building, the Capitol, when you blow it up on the way there. (Stupid!)
- Ziad Jarrah looked nothing like he did in the movie.
- The muscle hijackers were mostly Saudi (they look Pakistani in the movie) and spoke Arabic. They were trained in hand-to-hand combat and throat cutting.
etc.

Fail. If you want a real understanding of 9/11, watch National Geographic: Inside 9/11 (Two DVD documentary).

This, boys and girls, is a propaganda piece. Pure fiction.

Besides the fact that no one calling their own mother direct would use his first AND last names: "Mom, this is Mark Bingham...you believe me, right??" Cell phones would not have worked from that altitude in 2001.

Also, it's been admitted that United Airlines #93 was shot down.

If you really want to know what happened on 9/11, buy the Alex Jones DVD "Terrorstorm."
