Don't have nightmares - United 93 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
23/02/2007

The tension of the hijack is brilliantly conveyed - particularly as the hijackers don't appear worthy of suspicion or attention. Paul Greengrass tells a difficult story with taste and a consistently deft touch. Be warned - it's a terrifying story. I didn't sleep well after watching it.

Excellent - United 93 review by Rob S

Spoiler Alert
13/02/2007

For those who have an interest in the subject matter, be it from morbid curiousity or just wanting to pay tribute to the heros on this flight, this film hits just the right note. It is not overly sentimental and although the terrorists are shown as such and they are clearly the villians of the piece, there is even an insight into how they may have felt even though they executed this terrible act. The film also goes someway to highlight why this mission (thank god) aimed at the Whitehouse, failed.

Good performances from an unknown cast and excellent documentary (if a little long) if you want to know more about the real victims and about the genuine feelings that the cast had for the people that they portray in the film.

Highly recommended.

Empathy at its best - United 93 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
16/04/2007

On of the most touching and unnerving films I have ever watched. This film was Made with such compassion, it will leave you thinking about it for days. The way the passengers have been portrayed amazingly, such thought into each and everyone of them. I cannot immagine what they went through filming this. Paul Greengrass has created one of the most talked about films of the year surrounding an extremely sensitive subject.
