Perseverance and autheniticy

The mental and physical strength demonstrated by these soldiers is impressive to witness. Based on Daniel Flores' best-selling book "South of Heaven", David Salzberg brings a visual account to Flores' experiences during his deployment to Afghanistan. While omitting the graphic imagery of war, the audience is still pulled into the action by the use of actual archival footage from the cockpit and the ground, amplifying the intensity and magnifying the perseverance of soldiers like Flores or William Vile. Their determination and commitment to fulfill their duties and protect their fellow soldiers is quite admirable and symbolizes the meaning of brotherhood and patriotism, and Salzberg's ability to capture it in an honest fashion gives it a great impact. I highly recommend watching this documentary for its authenticity and its representation of unity.

Such a great film!

I can't say enough great things about this film. I saw it with a few friends of mine and by the end of it we couldn't help but sit back and reflect on how grateful we are to be protected by men like Daniel Flores. Above the Best is no Hollywood Blockbuster. It is an action film that portrays the real life actions and heroism of real American heroes. The men and women featured in this film get the call and they are out to risk their lives. That is the kind of high stakes situations that are being addressed in this film. This film had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend this film. David Salzberg has done it again.

Great documentary

Greetings from the darkness! (just kidding) This isn't so much a documentary but a telling of some instances that define what it really is like to be at war. The fear and the mundane that goes with it. In the end, it's really a job. A scary one but a job none the less. Most people that join the military don't intend to be in a war zone and most don't face combat. If you want to see what it was like in the skies this is it. I served but never saw war and grateful for it. Hats off to those that did. Well edited and the interviews are good. The footage is spot on. Skip fantasy and watch what it is really like.
