With United 93, abandon your hope at the theater door. You know the ending, and it is no happy one ...

Seacoast Newspapers (NH/Maine)

Maybe 100 years from now someone will make a film that isn't so gentle, so tentative.

Greengrass is a refined political artist, but United 93 goes pretty much entirely for gut reactions.

With an emphasis on the facts recovered since the incident and a refusal to hold back, United 93 paints a startling and unsettling picture of one of the most terrible incidents in recent history.

It is the film of the year. I needed to lie down in a darkened room afterwards. So will you.

Ultimately, United 93 leads to a dozen people fighting for their lives over about 12 minutes. Is there a message about the overall event? I don't see it.

Gripping, harrowing and ultimately devastating, this is a powerful, visceral film with strong performances and razor-sharp direction throughout.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

United 93 might be an insular response to a global tragedy, but -- taken on its own, limited terms -- it is powerful and sincere, giving reign to pity and fear without indulging jingoism or sentimentality. For that at least it deserves applause.

Greengrass winds up mythologizing the actions of the passengers aboard United 93, which isn't entirely fair to them or to us, the viewer.

We all know how it ends; the tension is wondering when the characters onscreen will figure out the 9-11 master plan

It is emotionally raw yet unsentimental; it shows people at their most pained and inspirational; it is both brilliant and troubling.

This limitation in source material has had a peculiar effect on the script. Never is there a moment of repulsive sentimentality or exploitation, but neither is Greengrass able to realize an ultimate purpose.

There are no cheap Hollywood touches and no exploitation, only a tribute to the terror, confusion and courage of that awful day.
