Quick movie review: "United 93"
United 93: I was really torn going into this movie. I'd heard that it was well done and respectful, but I really did not want to relive 9/11 just yet. But I'm extremely glad that I went. As you can imagine, the film packs an emotional wallop. This is a movie everyone should see; as time passes we become complacent* and need to be reminded of the real horrors that occurred on our soil five years ago. And while I absolutely loathed director Paul Greengrass's shaky camera in The Bourne Supremacy, it worked for this movie. As we enter the Summer Movie Season and our weekends are filled with Superman, Lex Luthor and the like, it's nice to see a movie about real heroes and villains to put things into perspective.
*Maybe that's not the right word.
