Paul Greengrass’ affecting drama about the fourth plane hijacked by terrorists on 9/11 is brilliantly done.
United 93 was the only hijacked plane not to hit its intended target on that day in 2001, thanks to the bravery of the hostages on board.
Without injecting hindsight and using unknown actors (including David Alan Basche and Daniel Sauli) as well as many of the real-life personnel involved, this vivid, intense dramatisation puts you in the moment as events unfold in the most devastating way.
Moving and intense, this film follows the horrific events in real time: see the confusion in the airport control towers and at military command, feel the horror when the twin towers are hit and the optimism as United 93’s passengers begin to fight back.
