"Above and Beyond" is a straightforward, rah-rah documentary that shines a light on a group of World War II pilots who were recruited to essentially create the Israeli air force during the Palestine War in 1948.
Though naggingly simplistic in its historical scope, the film offers a fascinating chronicle of the 1948 Arab-Israeli war through the eyes of a daring group of men.
The film veers toward oversimplified selectivity, too intent on its feel-good, back-patting agenda.
The film is best appreciated as a straightforward testimonial: old war buddies' hurrah against anti-Semitism.
Though somewhat marred by cheesy docudrama re-enactments, the film (produced by Steven Spielberg's sister Nancy) is nutty, dramatic, surprising and above all inspiring.
A fascinating little-known historical tale is stirringly recounted in Roberta Grossman's documentary about Jewish-American fighter pilots who volunteered to fight for Israel in its 1948 War of Independence.
This is a flat-out terrific film that is not ashamed to celebrate heroism and derring-do attitude.
Nimbly combines salty old dog storytellers regaling the swashbuckling derring-do of their youth with ILM's whiz bang special effects for a thrilling documentary ride.
Stirring docu about heroic WWII pilots who aided Israel.
Although the approach is too straightforward, the film conveys a valuable history lesson that's both informative and inspirational.
Reverential retrospective recounts U.S. pilots' role in Israel's War of Independence.
It may channel the loose, adrenaline-fueled lives of pilots, but the film's inconsistent, often impassive study of this intriguing real-life adventure feels half-told.
