This DVD movie is definitely worth taking a good look at. Even if you saw the movie in theatres, there are special feature interviews and behind the scenes clips. These are powerful as they help put the story in the perspective of loved ones that talked on the phone with passengers before the United flight 93 plane crashed. The acting and action is intense and well done, although it takes a while for the tension to build. But that's what probably happened five years ago on 9/11 flights. So at least the director didn't replace slow times with Hollywood action to keep the pace up at the expense of realism. There is a lot of violence once the hijackers show their hand, so this movie is not for small children. Crew members and pilots get killed but the violence isn't more than was warranted. This is a story of ordinary people who became extraordinary heroes, knew what had to be done and did it. If you want to see a fitting tribute to the people of United flight 93, this is the best.

ReviewSource Variety
Review "Taut, visceral and predictably gut-wrenching, ""United 93,"" Paul Greengrass' already much-debated look at Sept. 11, trades in some emotional impact for authenticity, capturing the overwhelming sense of chaos surrounding that day's harrowing events. The result is a tense, documentary-style drama that methodically builds a sense of dread despite the preordained outcome. While media attention has focused on reaction to the movie's trailer, strong ratings for earlier Flight 93 TV projects suggest there will be considerable curiosity, morbid or otherwise, about ""United 93"" that should translate into robust box office."

Review "There are those who believe this movie should not be released, that it is ""too soon."" I will admit to having believed there was merit to this position - until I saw Paul Greengrass' vision brought to the screen. United 93 is its own most compelling defender. There's not a whiff of exploitation to be found. This is an honest, fact-based account that exists for two reasons: to assure that we do not forget the events of that day and to remind us that amidst all the horror and tragedy, there was still room for heroism. If not for the actions of the doomed passengers of United Flight 93, the United States might not have a Capitol Building."
