(2006) Tense, well-acted documentary-style drama about the hijacking of an aircraft on 9/11, when passengers fought back, downing the plane in the ensuing melee and preventing destruction of a probable Washington target, while air traffic controllers on the ground struggled to make sense of what was happening. Director Paul Greengrass has avoided exploitation with his dispassionate approach and the use of a no-name cast, but many will obviously find this extremely distressing. Yet as a testament to heroism and a vivid cautionary tale, the film was, on balance, a worthwhile endeavor. Harrowing suspense, violence, and bloodshed (though discreetly shot with quick editing), other disturbing 9/11 imagery, a smattering of profanity and four-letter words uttered under extreme distress. (A-III -- adults) (R -- restricted) Showtime (cable)
