For me this movie was drawn out a little to long. Ok a lot to long. This movie does have some great scenes in it along with some good drama. It really does make you think about the mental toll that you would be faced with if put in that situation. For me it clued me into the idea that terrorist attacks are nothing new. The part that disappoints me is that Spielberg should have know better than to add 45 minutes of babble to this movie. Not every movie that is a documentary filmed like a movie has to be almost 3 hours long. That might not have made any sense but after spending 2 hours and 44 minutes watching this movie my brain is numb. Worth watching if you have an extra 3 hours to spend to watch it.
This is probably my least favorite Spielberg picture but that's still one heck of a lot better than most. I'm not big on this type of movie and didn't like the documentary feel very much. It also seemed to me that it rushed through the first few minutes leaving me a bit confused or maybe I wasn't paying attention already, who knows. It was also a bit too long in my opinion but I like long movies so maybe it was bad. Whatever, if you are interested in this type of movie or the subject matter it is at least a good rent, try to do it on someone else's dollar.
