This film seems to be unfairly regarded as the poor relation, just because it was made for TV. If so, it's snobbery. Flight 93 focuses much more on the humanity of the event, on the passengers and their families. This gives us the chance to empathize with them and feel for them as they meet their fate.
United 93 focuses more on the technical aspects. It fails to distinguish the passengers from each other and does not name them. I know this was done at the request of the families, so as not to single anyone out (not that this stopped the film makers from unjustly stigmatizing the German passenger as a wimp!).
I admit that Flight 93 perhaps goes too far in its depiction of endless phone calls. We wondered when the passengers were ever going to find time to take on the hijackers!
