  What good can possibly come from this?
CNN previews and reports on the trailer release for United 93, based on the events of 9/11. I'm not going to jump the gun by placing judgment before I've seen it, but the question remains valid. Is it something that will enlighten, provide some answers, or perhaps offer closure to families of the victims? There is even one brave attempt to compare the film to Schindler's List. Except people actually survived the Holocaust to tell the story for what it really was. Trying to re-enact what went on on Flight 93 based on a few short telephone conversations just before the crash seems a little prone to over-dramatisation to me and I'm at least a little suspicious some Hollywood fat cat is capitalising on this. But we had to see this film being made eventually. Most people interviewed on the street by CNN responded negatively to the trailer. Personally, I'm afraid the only thing worse than learning the truth, is watching a film that potentially offers none.
