This raw docudrama is too jarring and painful to recommend to a wide audience.

Emotionally devastating and yet strangely empty.

Ultimately, United 93 is a regurgitation of suspicious media-fueled speculation about events on an airplane that we know very little about.

Greengrass takes pains to keep events believable and relatively unrhetorical, rejecting entertainment for the sake of sober reflection, though one has to ask how edifying this is apart from its reduction of the standard myths.

Here's a movie that I didn't want to see, didn't enjoy seeing and wouldn't wish upon anyone else.

A fear-mongering exercise at best, a prolongued and agonizing snuff film at worst.

The stench of death and dread permeates every frame of United 93, but it is nowhere near as strong as the stink of synergy.

Not much different than visiting the dentist for a root canal and needing a heart transplant when you leave.

Like a photo dusted and wrinkled under a microscope by forensic investigators, the fingerprints of rights-clearances lawyers sadly mar and blur the picture's focus.

A film of limited ambition that may be before its time.

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.

I've never had a more excruciating moviegoing experience in my life, and as brilliantly crafted -- and as adamantly unexploitive -- as the picture is, it still leaves you wondering why it was made in the first place.

For those who can stomach the concept, United 93 does have its effective moments, especially the riveting final 20 or so minutes.

Strictly in movie terms (after all, it's a movie), United 93 slips from suspense film to disaster film to horror film.

Even the undeniable heroism of the passengers on United 93 doesn't edify as it should.

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.

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

Stop Smiling

Above all, one truth remains: the sacrifice of the 40 passengers on Flight 93 is truly remarkable. The film portrays their courage in the face of staggering odds in its own subjective and respectful way. It achieves what it wants as a film.
