  • Far from being exploitive, the effect is inspiring: This is the best of us. show more

  • There's just nothing artful about it, and it's Greengrass who deserves the credit. These nonactors don't act the way most people do when playing themselves. They act the way people do when they're being themselves. show more

  • An unflinching, powerfully visceral and haunting portrait of the tragic events aboard one of the terrorist-commandeered flights on the fateful morning of Sept. 11, 2001. show more

    I am absolutely furious that this man would assume that ANYONE in this country would think that it was even possible for such an occurence as 911 would happen to this country and that ANYONE is to blame? Maybe we were complacent, maybe a bit too comfortable, but you cannot tell me that anyone living in this country, including our FAA and Government would let this happen, on purpose? As much as I have an issue with how our country is run, I don't think that anyone with any type of hierachy would say "oh, let's cover our ass and not warn anyone".

Not one of us ever thought our country, our USA, would be the recipient of such horrendous behavior. I'm sick about this incident, this is the first time I've seen this movie, I have my reasons.....
