Storyline

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. Written by Matt Smith

Trivia

The vote to declare independence was taken on July 2, 1776. The text of the Declaration of Independence was approved on July 4, 1776. The only person to sign the document on July 4, 1776 was John Hancock as President of Congress. It was read publicly on July 8, 1776 by city Sheriff John Nixon. See more »

Goofs

In the 18th Century, men did not wear beards (the exception being some Russians). The upper and middle class gentleman would always be clean-shaven. The poor/laborer classes would only be shaved two or three times a week. Many German soldiers wore mustaches, but neither French nor British (and the colonists were still British) would have worn either mustaches or beards. See more »

Amateurish and corny
12 September 2015 | by s3276169See all my reviews

Beyond the Mask is a cross between a bad Mills and Boon novella and an action adventure with churchy overtones.

The storyline behind this drama is predictable fare. Its been done to death and exhumed for this turgid tale of adventure, love and redemption. Redemption in this case has a decidedly religious quality to it that is both simplistic and patronizing. Think of those well scrubbed types who turn up on your doorstep from time to time hawking their narrow view of the universe and you are there.

The acting is hackneyed too but not entirely awful. I'm at a loss to see why John Rhys-Davies, an exceptional actor in most respects, signed up for this decidedly "B" grade fare.

In summary,Beyond the Mask is not dreadful but its hardly a quality production either. Its amateurish, preachy and more than a little corny. All in all I'd say this is a marginal watch at best. Four out of ten from me.
