It's a harrowing and beautiful movie, brilliantly executed, and does justice to its subject. I hope you will reward writer/director Paul Greengrass for his efforts. Not at all exploitative.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

A visceral reminder of the gut-churning mundanity of the hijackings . . . shows that the blind war on terror . . . has been about bombast, symbolism and zealous overreaction.

If we were there, could we have mustered up the courage to fight back?

Thomas Peyser
Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

A brilliant and harrowing document of human beings facing unanticipated terrors with a steadfastness that is all the more moving for being completely believable.

Lessons of Darkness

Emotionally devastating and yet strangely empty.

It's one thing to say we'll never forget; United 93 asks us to sit down and try to remember.

It is worth not just seeing, but worth cherishing.

Boulder Weekly

A film every American should see, if only to be reminded of how easy it was for a handful of hijackers armed with razor blades to mount a devastating and demoralizing attack on the most powerful nation on Earth.

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

United 93 presses hard on raw nerves and then, in its final frame, it literally crushes them. What Greengrass has created is haunting and unshakable, the medium at its full potential.

It is through [a] complicated exploration of what it means to be human and the downplayed sacrifice of the passengers that the film achieves its greatest poignancy.

The war is far from over. United 93 is a great film, which should bring that message home.

A heartbreaking account of a security breach and act of terror so horrifying, we might not believe it onscreen if we didn't know it to be true.

It's hard to imagine a less sensationalized 9/11 film than United 93.

Shadows on the Wall

It plays out in such a shockingly authentic way that we feel like we're right there. And what makes this film vitally important is the way it challenges us to examine ourselves without ever making a big statement.

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

The material itself makes it seem less like an attempt at examination, understanding or some kind of closure than like picking at an unhealed wound and reopening it.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Greengrass is so determined not to exploit the deaths by 'entertaining' moviegoers that his film becomes almost an academic exercise -- an experiment to determine at what point deadpan dramatization plus audience anticipation equal emotional devastation.

| Original Score: 3/4
