A man who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City runs into his old college roommate. Rekindling the friendship is the one thing that appears able to help the man recover from his grief.
Jada Pinkett Smith
Rod Serling's seminal anthology series focused on ordinary folks who suddenly found themselves in extraordinary, usually supernatural, situations. The stories would typically end with an ironic twist that would see the guilty punished.
The Flight That Fought Back is a tasteful dramatization of the events leading up to and following the hijacking of Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. Narrated by Keifer Sutherland and featuring many actual recordings and many other recreations of the passenger's attempt to regain control of the aircraft. Passenger families and associates interviews are frequent, to give a better understanding of the people involved.
The movie is very tasteful and tactful in it's recreation and interviews, and gives an excellent of the events that happened on that tragic Tuesday morning.
The movie is heavily stylized. Thanks to Sutherland's narration and the frequent multiple camera angles in one shot, not to mention the occasional clock at the bottom of the screen, the film occasionally seems like an episode of 24.
Overall a good watch and showcase of the first people to give their life fighting terrorism.
