More a Drama than a Documentary
12 September 2005 | by (Northern VA) – See all my reviews

While nobody can feel anything but sympathy for the passengers on Flight 93, it cannot be ignored that this 'documentary' gave very short shrift to anything but the official explanation for how this plane went down. A very slick and polished drama, this film tugs at the emotions expertly, but leaves questions such as 'where is the wind noise coming from on the cockpit tapes?' totally open. Also totally ignored is passengers' reports via cell phone of smoke outside the plane. These two items would leave the impression the plane had been holed by cannon fire from the F16s which Kiefer assures us were '150' miles away, and not possibly involved.
