Nice to learn about the unsung heroes!
19 September 2005 | by bizflixSee all my reviews

Several stories were new to me, and one that stuck out in particular was that of passenger Richard Guadagno. Aided by a powerful performance by actor Bryce Wagoner, Guadagno's story was one of the highlights of this movie for me as I learned about one of the unsung heroes of Flight 93.

This is one powerful film that truly brings back the taut emotions of September 11, 2001. It helped put a number of the familiar stories into perspective. We've all heard of a handful of the passengers of Flight 93 and their heroic stories, the "Let's roll" quote, and all that. The power of this movie was that we learn about so many of the other passengers and get a glimpse into what they might have experienced. Thanks, Discovery Channel!
