Definitely a solid film that will get plenty of Oscars. But I agree with others on here that something was missing; and that something could very well be character depth. I don't believe in this version of the events that we are told happened(as with United 93); but I can separate the work from the matter. After all, make believe is a component in almost all of my favorite films.
A fabrication but a solid film in short. But nothing really stands out from the solidity for me to rate it any higher.
