Flight 93 Review, From A Commenter

Pupster sent this review of the movie.

It sounds grim, but absolutely necessary to see. If you think you can steel yourself for the experience, which some think they can't.

I'm going to see it this weekend myself, maybe today. I have the same reservations, though, that many readers express. A harrowing movie about the Holocaust, directed in a naturalistic, matter-of-fact style, may be a tremendous work of art and an unflinching look at evil, but it's not as if such a film exactly beckons a viewer to come and witness the horror.

Still, I'll see it... I just have to figure out when and where, and hope to God that no jerkoff Boston liberal moonbats are there to make announcements like "Bush knew, Osama slew."

I just got back from United 93. I went alone, following my plan to the letter.

My plan was to have 2 drinks before the showing as a bracer for what was to come. I had 4. (Crown Royal if it matters.)

I knew what was coming. I know how the movie ends. It's not enough.

45 minutes in, after everyone on screen knows it's a high jack, my jaw clenched.

50 minutes in, jaw still clenched, I start to mutter "MFer's, those MF'ers" under my breath.

60 minutes in, I start to tear up, along with the clenched jaw and MFer's under my breath.

70 minutes to the end the movie, I am sobbing. Not tearing up...sobbing. Not uncontrollably, just clenched jaw, MFing, sobbing.

You need to be ready for this movie. You need to see this movie.
