Anyone see or want to see this movie? I really want to see it, but I want a second opinion first.

It looks really interesting to me, I'd like to see it too.

So long as they don't overdramatize it, and show it like it supposedly was, I think it'll come out pretty good.

I'll probably see it, it looks pretty good. Hopefully it's authentic as well, because I'd hate to think that someone in hollywood is using one of the worst tragedy in our nations history to make some money on a cheesy airplain action move.

I saw it last night. I actually rented it, its been out here in the UK for ages. I have to say its quite good. Very tense and very sad. But still worth the watch.

I want to see it but it's only in certain theaters and it's only 90 minutes long.

I actully saw this movie tonight, I think it was respectfully done, and i heard on a radio show, someone give their opinion of it... it was a A+ movie, and i hated every moment of it, while there are many parts that made me relive that horrible day, resent goosebumps up and down my arms, I think it was almost important to see it, to make sure we never forget it, and it makes us kinda see what most likley happened by the passengers point of view that horrible Tues morn.

My parents saw it and my mom said she cried throughout the whole thing.

I told her I wouldn't go see it until I was actually prepared for such an intense feature.

I'd like to go see it. I don't see why people are saying it's 'too soon' when all day of 9/11/01 they repeatedly showed the planes crashing over and over.

Seen it Friday night, very good movie.
I won't give away the ending but I cried like a girl stood up on prom night.

interestingly enough a lot of the people in this movie (military and FAA) played themselves. I thought that took a lot of guts to not only relive the situations of that day but to perform very well actingwise

i think ppl are saying it is too soon just bc ppl go to movies mainly for entertainment value, and this movie has nothing entertaining about it, even alot of sad movies are not true ( movie wise, it's just the plot ) I can see if I would of lost someone in 9/11, thinking it was too soon, or just being able to see it at all. That being said, the movie was beautifully done, and with the victims in mind.

I disagree with your entertainment assessment. No it wasn't funny but that doesn't make it any less entertaining. the dialogue was real good and the little bit of action hit at exactly the right points

F.Y.I. the families were consulted about the movie and agreed to allow the movie to get out there because they wanted everyone to see what their loved ones went through.
