Audience Reviews for Above and Beyond

I am told this was made for TV. A Mini Series. I saw the previews on another DVD and it looked very interesting. What I saw at the time, I really don't know as the movie ended up being somewhat disappointing to me. This is based on actual events of England Ferry Planes from the US that were needed for the war. It involved actually flying the planes from the US to England vice shipping them across the Atlantic on Ships which had a good chance of being sunk by Submarines. It was enjoyable in the fact that it opened a piece of history from WWII that I knew nothing about. My hats off to the pilots and crews that made this possible. Jose Ackland played about as close to Winston Churchill that one can do. For that I give him 5 stars. The Movie itself was drug out at times, Acting was fair, it was what it was, made for TV, And that?s where I would wait to see it. 2 Stars is what I would give this one nothing more.
