Review:

What would you do in a life-or-death crisis? Dateline NBC presents a few scenarios in Survivor Stories: Moment of Decision. Using live and reenacted footage, interviews, and high-tech graphics, they tell five stories of quick-thinking people who transformed themselves into heroes at just the right time. You'll see a man nearly killed by an IRA bomb rescuing other survivors, a terrible midair paratrooper collision, a 10-year-old autistic boy trapped on a high-tension tower, and other stories of fast-paced rescues where each second means the difference between life and death. Dateline highlights the remarkable courage of the rescuers and willpower of the victims for surviving such terrifying challenges. While some of the footage is mildly disturbing, the message is still loud and clear: the age of heroes isn't over yet. --Rob Lightner
