    September 11, 2001. Four planes were hijacked. Three of them reached their target. This is the story of the fourth. A drama that tells the story of the passengers and crew, their families on the ground and the flight controllers who watched in dawning horror as United Airlines Flight 93 became the fourth hijacked plane on the day of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil: September 11, 2001. United 93 recreates the doomed trip in actual time, from takeoff to hijacking to the realization by those onboard that their plane was part of a coordinated attack unfolding on the ground beneath them. The film attempts to understand the abject fear and courageous decisions of those who – over the course of just 90 minutes – transformed from a random assembly of disconnected strangers into bonded allies who confronted an unthinkable situation.

    Sean, DURBAN. 24 October 2006

    a Remarkable achievement in filmmaking from a technical point of view. United 93 could not get any more realistic than it was and well done to Paul Greengrass (Bourne Supremacy) for making this one of the most grippingly tense movies I have seen in all my life, despite the subject matter.

    The movie collects the events in real time as it supposedly happened. The first 45 minutes shows us just how much confusion was caused in the air traffic control centres whilst the first two planes hit the World Trade Centre leading into the hijacking of Flight 93 and the attempt by it's passengers to take the plane back.

    The hijacking itself is beyond words, really intense and brutal. Knowing well what the outcome was going to be I couldn't help but see light at the end of the tunnel for the passengers, man they came SO close to getting the plane back and had they done so would probably have managed to land it safely but time just wasn't there. The final 10 minutes is really tense...trust me, you need to remember to breath whilst watching that.

    As for the terrorists well, not too sure what to say regarding them. I felt no sympathy for them...yeah so we see them worrying and also praying for their cause and one guy possibly thinking twice as to what they are about to embark on, but let me tell you most of the time after the hijacking these guys boiled my blood and made me feel as if I could jump into the tv and just go "malkop" there. Kuddos to the guys who played those four roles! And also to the other actors playing the passengers and the air traffic controllers who were all mostly played by the real people.

    Surely there will be many more stories told from that day but I just can't see any other movie topping this in both technical and emotional content.
    Brilliant stuff !!!
