Beyond The Mask
Andrew Cheney ■ John Rhys-Davies ■ Kara Killmer
The chief mercenary for the British East India Company, being double crossed by his former employer, has made his way to the American Colonies. Working to redeem his name, William Reynolds (Andrew Cheney) now hides behind a different mask in hopes of thwarting his former employer. As his past life closes in on him, Will must somehow gain the trust and the help of his beloved Charlotte, a woman he has been lying to, as well as a colonial intellectual by the name of Ben Franklin. All the while he races against time to defuse a plot that could have devastating effect on the birth of a new nation.
I saw and ad for Beyond The Mask some time ago and when I got the chance to watch it, I took it. I was totally impressed. You just don't see very many Christian action films out there, and especially ones that aren't all end-timesy. The storyline was interesting, the acting not half-bad, the CGI was actually pretty good as CGI goes, and I wound up staying up until 2 am just to finish. Christian films have definitely come a long way from the early days. If you are looking for a movie with action, adventure, romance, AND redemption, all in a package that can be watched by all but the little kids, try this movie. I don't watch a lot of newer movies and I truly like even less of them, but this is one that I did and would easily watch over again.
And, I actually did. I had my parents and brother watch it with me, and you know what? I was even more impressed the second time around.
P.S. Watch for a costume near the end that looks A LOT like American Girl doll Felicity's riding habit.
