On September 11, 2001, two American Airlines and two United Airlines domestic U.S. flights are hijacked by terrorists. After the collision of two planes against the World Trade Center and one against the Pentagon, the passengers and crew of United Flight 93 decide to struggle against the four terrorists to take back the control of the airplane.

The actors who played the terrorist hijackers and the actors who played the passengers and crew on the flight were kept in separate hotels during filming. They also worked out in separate gyms and did not eat meals together. This was so that the director could capture the separation, fear and hostility between the two groups of antagonists and protagonists. See more »

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.
