Product description

Product Description

Drama based on the events of 9/11. The film 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. Following the flight from takeoff to the hijack, to the realisation of those onboard that their plane was part of a coordinated attack unfolding on the ground beneath them.

From Amazon.co.uk

Three months before the much-publicized theatrical release of United 93, the same true-life tragedy was faithfully dramatized in Flight 93, an equally praiseworthy TV movie that was originally broadcast on the A&E network in the US on January 30, 2006. The fourth plane to be hijacked on September 11th, 2001--and the only plane that didn't reach its intended terrorist target--is the riveting subject of this film, which unfolds in real-time (similar but not identical to United 93), beginning with the terrorists' preparations and boarding of the ill-fated flight. We then follow the notorious events as they unfold, and from that moment on, it's nearly impossible to take your eyes off the screen. The intense drama focuses on the passengers who ultimately thwarted the terrorists--they include Tom Burnett (Jeffrey Nordling), Todd Beamer (Brennan Elliot), and Mark Bingham (Ty Olsson)--but as their counter-attack plans are being made, the action also reveals the chaotic nature of the ground response, from the White House bunker (where Vice President Cheney was moved for security) to Offices of the Federal Aviation Agency, Verizon headquarters (where in-flight calls were monitored), and United Airlines flight control, where pilots and terrorists alike could be heard throughout the terrible ordeal of the hijacking.

To his credit, director Peter Markle steers clear from any sense of exploitation (it helps that there was a five-year gap between the 9/11 tragedy and this respectable film); furthermore, both Markle and screenwriter Nevin Schreiner avoid the pitfalls of melodrama by keeping the action rooted in the facts as we know them. Speculation is necessary for some of the dramatic details, but Flight 93 benefits from a well-chosen cast of unknowns, which enhances our belief in them as ordinary citizens under extraordinary circumstances. As you might expect, several scenes are inherently unforgettable (up to and including the now heroic phrase "Let's roll!" as the counter-attack begins), and the authentically played emotions are further intensified by realistic special effects by Gary Gutierrez, who performed similarly laudable duties on The Right Stuff 23 years earlier, at the start of his visual effects career. Produced with the cooperation of surviving family members of those who perished on Flight 93, this well-made TV film handles difficult material with grace under pressure, and that alone serves as an admirable tribute to those brave passengers who gave their lives so that others could be saved. --Jeff Shannon

I've seen this a number of times before and indeed I think this movie is at least as good as the better known "United 93". I have both DVDs in another house and got this one to make up the set in one of my other homes. The DVD was well packaged and is playing very well - it's in the DVD player now.

This came out as a TV movie some months before "United 93" and takes a slightly different angle, and is equally moving in the way it tells this awful tale, specially poignant for me as one of those on board was known to me.

There was a little confusion when I bought this film. I thought it was the quick release of United 93 from cinema to DVD.

Anyhow, I realise now that this was a TV Movie and that United 93 will be later released.

Setting the above aside, I thought Flight 93 brought home what the people of America felt during the attacks.

This film is well written, directed and acted piece of reconstructed history.

I see the film as a celebration of those who were brave during the ill-fated flight as they faced their fears and sacrificed their lives to save others.

The DVD was extremely moving in general. The opening menu gives a sober, almost reverent impression. It brought back a lot of memories and feelings I had on that day. My perceptions were similar on the day Flight 93 actually flew for the last time. The movie's storyline is limited to the knowledge we had on September 11, 2001. Frankly the only violence in the movie comes when the terrorists take over the plane and when the passengers take it back. The rest is sheer suspense while the passengers have some tear jerking conversations with their loved ones.

This is just as good as the movie "United 93" {but made for TV}, again using not well known actors, very moving very dramatic.
A view of a slice of history that we should NOT FORGET!

I'm rating this inbetween because it wasnt brilliant, neither great. I thought the story was rather sad as it made me remember what happened back in 2001. This movie has some obvious let downs inside it, not big, but things that could have made the movie that bit better!

I am mainly refferring to the acting because i personally didnt think it was that great. The reactions/expressions werent very shocking from the passengers when they realized a few terrorists were controlling the plane. Also, the pace was another let down i thought. However, i stil enjoyed this, its worth watching, but i do think there are some letdowns here.

A well put together dramatisation of what possibly happened on the fatal Flight 93 the day of 9/11. With the material they linked together, phone calls made from the passengers to things they heard on speakers etc. I think this is a fitting tribute to the bravery of those on board.
