    the film "United 93"

    My wife and I just finished watching this film.
    Excellent film.

    We must never forgot what happened September 11, 2001.

    I'm enraged at the attack on our country and our people.

    Our "war paint" should be on and we should bring all of our military, political, economic might to bring our enemies down.
    "Political correctness" should be thrown in the trash where it belongs.
    Eradicate these mf'ers wherever they are.

    I have yet to see it - I think tho we had a revue thread not too long ago on it and the general concensus was very favorable.

    Great Film...

    my wife and I just watched it a couple of weeks ago. Everyone should watch it!

    More people need to be reminded of what these WACKO's did...and sadly... the fat lady won't be singing for a long time!

    It's not if...but when!

    +1 on it's a great movie. Very well made, and really shows how the actions played out, not just on the plane, but with the people in contact on that ground, some of which were strangers, some family.

    My vote is for it to be a must watch for high school seniors. Not a movie for the young though. IMO

    Glad it made you Mad all of the pansy liberals that have forgotten and are bashing our being in Iraq need to be tied to a char and made to watch it at least 100 times lest they forget again.

    I think Michael Savage has it right:

    PC isn't politically correct...it is political cowardice.
    Armed & Dangerous...and Inconspicuous...

    Savage has a lot more than that right....

    I have to retract my previous review, The movie I have a copy of is FLIGHT 93. I have not seen UNITED 93.

    The previews look like it is also a good movie, I'll have to try to catch it.

    I originally caught UNITED 93 when it hit theatres earlier this year...I had my teeth and jaw clenched throughout the entire movie. Yeah, there was no suspense 'cause we knew how it was gonna end , but the hatred and anger welled back in me recalling that fateful day. c

    Great film - lest we NEVER forget.

    Be prepared to be touched - tears of grief and tears of rage.

    I hadn't been that angry since that day after I had watched that movie.

    From everything I've read about the flight both movie versions were pretty accurate.
