Just saw "United 93" on DVD. Not a martial arts film per se, but those guys on board that fourth plane were real heroes.

Gives me a new perspective on "Leaves Fall". Great movie, handled with a degree of sensitivity. Don't miss it.

Looks like it may be good. Still haven't seen United 93, going to soon though.

Ridiculous statement.
Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI, WII, Gulf War, along with a dozen movies on smaller scale disasters.....are those all exploitations as well?

No sense in argueing this. For some, the event will remain too raw to review. It would have to pass into 'history', and have no current emotional attachment, before they can pull it out. For some, it is still a 'current event'. People attach all kinds of taboo, ascribe 'sacred' status and put it in a safe box, in order not to relive pain.

If you like this you must be drooling over "World Trade Center". An oliver stone flick where nick cage plays a hero firefighter.

That was the film I was referring to when I said it was exploitation.

Its not because the film has come out too soon or anything.. its that its probably only out because of a trend. Not too long ago Showtime had a show about terrorists.. and small movies about the lives of terrorists came out afterwards. Terrorism is one of hollywood's latest cash cows.
