Greengrass' intense, emotional drama covers the hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. Events alternate between what is happening onboard as the passengers and crew try to disarm the hijackers and what is happening at the FAA, air defense headquarters, and airport control towers as realization dawns about the scope of the disaster and what, if anything, can be done. The Boeing 757 eventually crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, with a total loss of life. Greengrass filmed in the U.K., and a number of the cast are nonprofessionals playing themselves.

United 93

United 93 is a sad, but good movie. It’s the story of the fourth hijacked plan of September 11, 2001. No one is for sure as to what exactly happened on the plan or what the real events were that made the plan crash. Some passengers made phone calls to their loved ones and there was some radio contact. United 93 was heading towards the Pentagon. The passengers on board knew they needed to try to stop the terrorists or they all were going to die. The plan ended up crashing near Shanskville, Pennsylvania and did not reach the terrorists target.

Based on a true event, United 93 came out in 2006, with a run time of 111 minutes. Due to the violence and language throughout United 93, the movie has a rating of R. It was September 11, 2001, and terrorists have hijacked four planes, with each plane having a crashing destination. The other three planes have already hit their destinations. Two of the planes hit at the World Trade Center and one against the Pentagon. This movie is about flight United 93 and what could have possibly happened during their flight based on some of the recordings from the pilot cabin and some of the passengers phone calls to close family and friends. The movie shows how the passengers onboard could have tried to stop the terrorists. In the attempt to stop the terrorists from reaching their target, located in Washington D.C., United 93 ended up crashing near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. September 11, 2001 was a very sad day for the U.S.
