This kind of movie will always raise the doubt "Is this for profit or is it just a noble principle?". Thank God consumism and profit are not seen as the devil anymore and of course people make movies to make some money in the end. But if they affirm a noble and strong principle we should not be scared of that. We are beyond that.
I'm much more willing to give a couple of bucks to the director of Flight 93 than to some Michael Moore or Oliver Stone and their stupid lie-mentaries.

I am going to try to see the movie since I am doing a project on terrorist attacks and the USA PATRIOT Act and I am having a court martial using it.

Something all of you are missing is that the phones on the plane were all operational and almost everyone had cell phones.

There was a long period of personal conversations that were taped and used as reference.

The passengers, through their relatives and others were told about the other three flights being hijacked exactly as theirs had. Since all others had ended in suicide missions, it didn't take a genius to realize that this plane was also a suicide mission.

There were open lines to the ground until all communications went dead at impact. The people on board were describing to their relatives, airports, and even a cell phone company every move that was being made and their plans.

Remember, this flight is the only one that had time enough to talk to loved ones and authorities and also the only flight to know about the other three flights' outcome.

Exactly what part of "well documented" is not understood?

By the way, RV is beating it because RV has a famous movie star in it. If Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise and crew were in it, i would bet money that that movie would skyrocket to maybe 20-25 mil. its all about popularity. Come back to me when you realize that we do need to remember. Just like i said and just like 5.56 said.
At the end of the day, it's all about the money. Does anyone think the movie would have been made with no hope of generating a profit? I don't see any actors, writers, or technicians working free of charge. A generation ago the US government would have enlisted the efforts of John Huston, Capra or someone of thier capability to tell America's story. If anyone needs this mass media tickler to help them remember, they have a short memory.

Everytime a murderer is executed, there are book offers and movie rights sold. Take "Dead Man Walking," as just one of many, I'm sure Susan Sarandon or Sean Penn didn't work for free. Anything, especially a tragedy will sell and that's the "car wreck" instinct in us. I will watch it because of all the info held back to protect the families of the victims. No one knew the full facts of the horror of the trade center coming down until the Moussaoui trial and the film footage and stories from survivors were shown in court.

I never want to forget, same as the horrors of death camps in WWII. I want these people plastered all over the news and movies for the next 100 years. Already, there are people who don't remember or believe the holocaust ever happened. We need our eyes and ears to wittness what happened to our own people on our own soil and how easily it can happen again.

If it takes money grubbers to nudge our collective consciences, then let them make a few bucks.

You want to overcome US apathy? A movie ain't gonna do it. What will do it? More planes. More buildings. If it doesn't have a negative impact on their trite little lives, the average citizen won't be moved by anything less than a bombshell.

And you dont think a movie that made more than one person cry after seeing it is not moving...you must be a stolid to the extreme...
like missileer said. I want them to be publicly announced. I want a list of peoples names in every history book in america.I want these men and women who were guilty of no crimes to be remembered. if hollywood can do that, then i dont giva a rats donkey aboutthe money. I realize that money is a goal but does anyone think that hollywood and the people associated with this movie didnt think about the people who died or fought back? DO you think they didnt want people to remember that this did happen, even though,in the words of Alan Jackson's " Where Were You?" people closed their eyes and pretend it never happened? NO. They want America to remember that it did happen. Call me a realist, but it did. thats the hard fact.

Hmmm, i really don't think i'l watch this film. If this film is in anyway overly patriotic i'm afraid il just laugh at it. I'l never laugh at the victims of 9/11 and i'l always have my deepest sympathies for those poor souls.

I don't need another patriotic film rammed down my throat, patriotism is too close to fanatiscm for my liking. I look at the war on terror and am always reminded of 9/11, i look at images of the towers and i'm always reminded of 9/11. These are enough for me to remember that terrible day forever.

I hope that film offers an un biased view on the event, does anyone know if they go into the reasons why the terrorists did what they did out of curiosity?

Otherwise my heart goes out to all those innocents that died on 9/11 and those dying in the war on terror.

Henderson you sound like the CCP with their "Don't forget what the colonial powers did to us" and "Never forget the atrocities committed by Japan." There is a point at which you stop picking the scab and let the wound heal.

The enemy we face today is NOT the same as in 2001. They have evolved and we had better do it as well or they will continue to taunt us as our LE agencies and intel agencies keep pissing on each other in turf battles rather than working together to actually protect people.

That is the very same enemy.
