Behind the Mask
2 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Behind the Mask is a gripping serial chapter-play that is a stuntman's holiday. The screenplay was very capably written and cleverly directed by Warren Chaney. Production values are high and Ted Mason's wonderful opening music score is as extremely compelling. From its opening minor notes to the closing brass, the music alone keeps the viewer on the edge.

Actors for the production are top-notch. Deborah Winters portrays FBI agent, Annie Strayton. I was struck that she plays her character in a tough no-nonsense way that is so popular today. Impressive given that she was doing this role in the early 90s.

Roy Alan Wilson is the lead, portraying two roles quite effectively. The first is as one of the scientist suspects and the second as the Mask himself. He also dons makeup and quite cleverly portrays other characters in the film.

Steve Word plays the ultimate bad guy, the Octopus assisted by a swarthy henchman, played by Luis Lemus. The two personify evil and are extremely effective in their roles.

Craig Bailey's Camera work is excellent as is team Melissa Nichols' wardrobe and makeup. Bailey keeps the scenes dark, brooding and mysterious which is perfect for this type of film.

Chaney's direction is low key but dramatic. He can obviously direct a story as well as write one. Special mention must be made of the superb stunt work coordination by David Sanders. This reviewer has never seen so many stunts so well executed in any film.

The episodic cliffhangers are well done and the filmmakers play fair with the audience. From the beginning to the end, I highly recommend this film.
