Behind the Mask
7 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Behind the Mask" is a 6-Chapter Adventure Serial, the first chapter-play production in nearly 40 years. Its exploits involve an unknown hero, concealing his identity as "The Mask." His nemesis, "The Octopus" is also unknown. The hero and villain suspects center around a group of scientists who are being systematically killed one by one. Filmed in 3-D, its action/adventure sequences match with best of this genre genre. The acting and directing are topnotch. The film stars Steve Word, Roy Allan Wilson, John Swayze and Deborah Winters, reprising an earlier television role as FBI Agent Annie Stratten.

The film's production values are outstanding and the film's storyline is both unique and fascinating. The cinematography and music are gripping as are the extraordinarily well directed and choreographed stunt scenes. The script is extremely clever and well-written concealing the identity of the film's hero to the last minute and then still leaving an audience to wonder. Each Chapter of this production ends in a cliffhanger. Film history is replete with cliffhanger cheats but not here. The director plays fair, giving the audience continuing clues right up until the end. The picture's final scene sets the audience up for a sting and then delivers it. "Behind the Mask" is fun, well directed, and cleverly imaginative.
