Tasteful, but occasionally like an episode of 24
11 September 2005 | by (Way Down in Deep 13) – See all my reviews

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.
