The World War II set romantic drama Above and Beyond concerns a young man and woman who fall in love, but must consider putting country before self in order to do what is right for the world. Richard E. Grant and Jason Priestley star in this tale of love in the RAF. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
I guess I didn't enjoy this mini-series as much as the other reviewers since I rated it just okay. As has been said, Jason Priestley is in it just briefly, so to say he "stars" in it is an exaggeration. The only other name actor is Richard E. Grant, and he is quite good. Oh, there's Joss Ackland -- but his portrayal of Winston Churchill is almost painful to watch. The story is interesting, and assuming the moviemakers didn't play loose with historical accuracy, I can at least say I learned something about the ferrying of warplanes across the North Atlantic from Newfoundland to the U.K. by civilian pilots. But the production is rather amateurish. I was embarrassed for Richard E. Grant to be in a production where most of the actors give amateur performances.
This movie was ok. Jason Priestley in only in the film for 10 min or so. Don't get the movie to see him. The acting was alright. It is a good history movie and you learn something new about the war. All-in-All it was an ok movie.
