Paul’s review of The Beyond

The Beyond was released on 9th January 2018 in the UK with a Guidance rating and is set in 2019 chronicling a ground-breaking mission to send advanced AI astronauts through a newly discovered wormhole trying to see what is on the other side. It is filmed as a behind the scenes documentary and this was sufficient to get a background to the new anomaly. However, after this they should have reverted back to usual. The actual story was good, but it could have been a lot better and you can see that compromises were made to explain how the new AI’s were being produced. I did not recognise any of the actors but this did not detract from the movie and the CGI was adequate. Part way through the movie I did become a little bored, but the action did improve later, and the ending was good if a little bit confusing as to what they were actually saved from. Overall, I would give it 3 out of 5 stars and it won’t be added to my collection.

    To me this seemed like a documentary within a documentary. The technique may seem unique, but I don’t know a lot of people who are into documentaries. The beginning was a teaser for the action which occurred at least 45 minutes later.
    Most of the science was improbable while the fiction was bearable. Most of the acting was believable, but the actors were working with a script that left a bit to be desired. I would not bother watching it again or add it to my collection.
