Movie Info

Although al-Qaida terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners on September 11, 2001, only three reached their intended targets. United Airlines Flight 93, a Boeing 757 that departed late from Newark to San Francisco, crash-landed near Pittsburgh instead of becoming a weapon against the White House or the United States Capitol. This speculative cable-TV docudrama imagines how the flight might have played out for the flight's passengers, who are believed to have risen up against their hijackers after being alerted to the other terrorist attacks via cell phone. Unfolding in more or less real time, Flight 93 depicts the hijacking from the viewpoints of those on the flight and those on the ground. Tom Burnett (Jeffrey Nordling), Mark Bingham (Ty Olsson), Todd Beamer (Brennan Elliott), and many of the flight's other, posthumously famous passengers are portrayed, as are their families, law-enforcement agents, air-traffic controllers, United employees, and cell-phone company personnel. Flight 93 originally aired in January 2006 on the A&E cable network, several months after the Discovery Channel debuted its documentary The Flight That Fought Back and several months before the feature film United 93 premiered.

    a lesser known made for tv version of united 93 which i haven't seen. i thought peter markle did a good job of remaining unbiast throughout flight 93. i don't want to say alot political about this film. at the end of the day i'm reviewing the film and not the current world situations. i think it was realistic as possible without being gruesome but despite it's subtle strong approach the subject matter wasn't interesting enough

    I thought this was a hell of alot better then united 93, which subsequently was released at the same time, I found this version way more intense.

    Done super-well. A better movie then United 93, especially, if your looking more into the effect on our lives, or family members lifes, rather then just the timelined events.
