5.0 out of 5 stars The Hamburg Cell 7 April 2012
By David Rowland TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Everyone living at the time remembers where they were when two airliners were highjacked and flew into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York on
9 September 2001, when another airliner crashed into the Pentagon and a fourth crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after its passengers tried unsucessfully to wrest control of the plane from the highjackers who intended it to crash into the Capital in Washington. This film tells the story from the point of view of a small group of young Muslim men living in Hamburg who were gradually radicalised and then recruited to carry out the most spectacular act of terrorism in the 20th century that was shown live to millions of people all over the world as it unfolded in horrendous detail on our television sets.

The film shows that the massacre and ill treatment of Muslims in places like Bosnia, Palestine, Chechnya and Iraq sowed the seeds of hatred in the minds of some young Muslims towards the west and given the undeniable fact that Muslims have suffered so much injustice and ill treatment over the last half century in many countries it's not difficult to see why this seed took root in such fertile ground. Some countries in the west have a lot to answer for in this respect and the people of many countries in Europe and in the USA are now paying the price for the foreign policies of their governments because they now live in constant fear of terrorist attacks like the one that took place in 2001.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film - a 'must watch' 17 Jun 2010
By AlexS
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent docu-drama showing how young men from privileged backgrounds can be 'groomed' by extremists and slowly turned into terrorists. The film is about the recruitment and training of the 9/11 terrorists. NOT an action film, but believable and gripping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking 9 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an extraordinary film; it has multi layers. I have watched it twice (so far) and each time I came away with a different opinion. The first of course was a kind of chilled horror, the second was a realisation that from the hijackers' point of view the action was perfectly logical.I find it quite rare that a film gives even a momentary glipse into an alien idea like this one does.

we need more information on what we can play. I don't like waiting to long for it to be sorted when it has to go back to America. Would not order again.

5.0 out of 5 stars 9/11 in the making 3 Oct 2006
By P.K. Ryan - Published on
'The Hamburg Cell' is an excellent film that follows the 9/11 hijackers in the years leading up to the attacks. The film is simple, yet extremely compelling. The acting is superb, and the characters are portrayed not as frothing at the mouth lunatics, but as the rather ordinary-albeit demented-young men that they were. The film succeeds in showing how one can go from a shy, secular, college student, to an angry, brainwashed, religious zealot. From the several books that I have read on the subject, the film seems to be very accurate. Conspiracy theories notwithstanding, this is the true story of the 9/11 hijackers and how they came to be the most infamous men of our generation. I highly recommend this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting 2 Oct 2006
By Chloe - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tries to show how the hijackers came to do what they did, but it's still hard to get your head around. Makes you sad and angry at the same time. In spite of the sensitive subject matter, it's a beautifully made movie. Definitely worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful and sophisticated insight into 9/11 bombers' mindset 11 Jan 2007
By Chris Hopton - Published on
This docu-drama is a meticulously researched account of the recruitment and radicalization of the 9/11 bombers. It represents well the ambivalence some of them felt; it articulates eloquently the sense of alienation that many modern Muslims feel about the West and the double-standards that characterise US foreign policy in the Middle East; it presents fairly the debate within Islam about suicide vs. martyrdom.

It is unparalleled amongst programmes I have seen in explaining so coherently how these particular individuals came to justify to themselves the attacks that took place on September 11. A sobering and compelling account.

I had seen this when it first came out, but I wanted a copy of my own. The acting is really good, making the movie just plain chilling. This is the story of 9/11 told from an interesting point of view, and done rather well. I would highly recommend it.
