On September 11, 2001, four planes were hijacked over the United States of America. Two were flown into the Twin Towers in New York City, one into the Pentagon in Washington DC, but the last one crashed in a field after the passengers had tried to seize control back from the terrorists. Sticking closely to the known facts, this is a sober and sombre recreation of that final flight. It can be very uncomfortable to watch, but this powerful film helps us start to understand the most infamous day in recent history.

    This film was full of tension and suspence. I didnt really get into it at first but once all the hijacking started then i got into it. You could see the emotion on all of the actors faces and it was like a real life story. At the end when you found out that none of them made it then that made your heart sink.

    I thought this film was really good because it showed a part of 9/11 that is just as tragic as the twin tower planes but that people don't really know about. It was a very moving film that I enjoyed and found very informative.

    throughout the film i found that it was informative and moving.
    the end was enough to make anyone cry the way that so close to
    death the people stopped the plane from killing anyone else.
    I didn't know as much about the bombings as i did after watching that film.
    amazing. i would watch it again.

    I thought that the opening of the film was quite boring, however towards the middle it became increasingly interesting. Serious issues were raised from the film on true events which took place. For this reason, the film was both educational and eye-opening as to the background behind 9/11.

    I enjoyed this film because it was based on a world changing event. It altered my perspective on the incident itself, as I was unable to bring myself to comprehend how the people that suffered during it really must have felt. The film was a real eye-opener to say the least.
