You either like or hate shaky cam all you want, but never has it been use so effectively like "United 93". It's there for a reason to get the feeling that your every character on that plane, and I do mean everyone. I have no idea how Paul Greengrass dose it, but he manages to take a real tragic and crafted it so masterful that it truly captures the terror on that day. And to all those who died on that day. You will never been forgotten.

There are no Hollywood style "heroes" or irrelevant soap opera bullshit concerning the passengers; it merely provides an accurate (as far as the known facts fit) depiction of what happened on the plane as the passengers realized what was happening and …

We all know what happened that Tuesday morning now forever known as 9/11, and this movie tries to depict the events of that morning from the viewpoint of those on the ground working on that day.
When I first saw the commercials for this movie before its release, I suspected that this was going to be speculative on what happened on the plane with what is known from those on the plane who called families as the events were unfolding and the cockpit tapes. However, this movie mainly focuses on military and FAA responses as the hijackings and attacks happen.
The other planes which were taken over by hijackers are just referenced in this movie and a barely touched. We do see the results of the two planes which struck the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City through actual …
