The ensemble cast of mainly unknown actors were each given studies of their real life United Flight 93 counterparts. Director Paul Greengrass was then able to partially improvise some of the events for the film. See more »
When auditing the recording of a transmission from American Airlines Flight 11, the reviewer repeatedly listens to the crucial portion, rewinds the tape, and listens again. But as the sounds play, the reel moves only a small fraction of a turn, while the rewinding covers several times that distance; yet the reviewer supposedly always ends up back at the same point in the recording.

I cannot believe the high rating this movie has received. The only reason why it is on the top 250 movies list is from all the Americans voting it there, purely out of an emotional connection to the terrible atrocities of 9/11. Yes, the rest of the world sympathises with you, we too were traumatised by what happened to your country and cried with you. But for goodness sakes people! See this movie for what it truly is, a blatant attempt to profit from your emotional trauma, only produced to help Americans come to terms with the reality of what happened and most probably used to help feed your support for the Bush administrations justifications to invade Afganistan and Iraq.
This is not deserving of being ranked so highly and would have been better released as an American TV movie featurette, not pumped to the rest of the English speaking world to have to deal with.
