Trivia

Kenneth Kantymir (who played Andrew Garcia, one of the passengers who rushed the cockpit) wore his own Star of Courage bravery medal pinned over his heart for the entire shoot to honor the memory of the heroic passengers and crew of United Airlines flight 93. See more »

Goofs

When flight 93 is going nose down, and you can see the ground approaching through the cockpit wind shield, the flight instruments (most notably the horizontal situation indicators and attitude indicators) show business as usual - that is, the plane is flying more or less horizontally, which doesn't correspond with the fact that they are about to crash.

Never cried as much in my life
30 January 2006 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

This was very well done despite being on a small budget. I was shaking through most of it as I was reliving the experience through the actors and events. The acting and writing was excellent and though the real people surely looked different this movie put faces with the names. The characterizations were done very convincingly and I now want to see photos of the real people to see how well the casting was. I know I will never take for granted my next flight and will be aware of those around me and what they are doing. I found myself wondering during the movie, why hasn't more been done to avenge this day as I still have a empty feeling that those that would attack our country have not been hurt enough for what happened on this day so that they or their children won't attack again. There can be no secret of what happens in the end, but it was very interesting how they figured out what the overheard "Let's roll" quote was for. This movie did make me totally forget everything and I was glued to the television. The "I love you" scenes were nicely done. The movie was not boring, though it could have easily have been. But like the movie "Blackhawk Down" it's a very powerful emotional movie and seeing it more than once can be exhausting, but it's a valuable and enlightening movie and needs to be seen by those that can handle it.
