As members of ‘Machal’ — volunteers from abroad — this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war, preventing the possible annihilation of Israel at the very moment of its birth; they also laid the groundwork for the Israeli Air Force. ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story. The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the War of Independence, ABOVE AND BEYOND brings together new interviews with pilots from the ’48 War, as well as leading scholars and statesmen, including Shimon Peres, to present an extraordinary, little-known tale with reverberations up to the present day.

Fabulous story of courage and sacrifice
An amazing story of yet another example of the world greatest generation. Well done documentary with the right touches and details so difficult to uncover due to the secretive nature of the effort in the 1940’s. Laced with real footage and interviews or those that were there, it doesn’t get any better. I highly recommend the film. You have to ask yourself how would it feel to have the choices these people had. And what would you do? It is historically correct and therefore not iced over with drama. It’s just the way it was. I am so glad someone captured this noble effort in history. You will enjoy this film. I recommend it to all.
Promising background but mediocre presentation
The story’s background surely contained a big promise waiting to be taken into the big screen. Volunteering foreign pilots with relatively low experience smuggling their way out risking their own citizenship and/or jail time, to help a newborn state with nothing to count as an Air Force, this looks interesting enough, particularly as we see the outcome of the war which Israel won against five Arab states invading from all sides. The thing is that this movie lacks is that it relied too heavily on the interviews and not giving itself more weight on the dramatization. Maybe the stock of archival footage or photographs will be very hard to find, but at least it can emphasize on reenactments. There’s just to many moments when the movie would literally freeze as it shows photographs for a moment just too long with inadequate background sounds or sorts.
