DVD Review: 'Beyond the Reach'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ The division between deranged villainy and complete buffoonery is a fine one. As bloodthirsty, silver-tongued businessman John Madec in French director Jean-Baptiste Léonetti's Beyond the Reach (2014), Michael Douglas tramples all over the line drawn in the Mojave desert sand as a maniacal caricature of Gordon Gekko toting a high-calibre Austrian rifle. Based on the 1972 novel Deathwatch by Robb White, Léonetti's film could have occurred any time since and in any barren, unforgiving landscape.

Big Sky | Review

Wide Open Spaces: Grau’s Arid English Language Debut Misses the Mark

For his long awaited follow-up to his handsomely unsettling 2010 debut We Are What We Are (since remade in English by Jim Mickle), Mexican filmmaker Jorge Michel Grau turns to the American indie scene for Big Sky. But this desert set survival story trailing one teenager’s attempts to overcome the dastardly adults in pursuit of her is as equally ludicrous as another foreign filmmaker’s recent foray into English, French filmmaker Jean-Baptiste Leonetti’s nonsensical Beyond the Reach. Ill-advised and incongruously shaped at every turn, this technically proficient exercise’s greatest faults could easily be assigned solely to Evan M. Wiener’s woefully underwhelming and inconsistent screenplay. But then that would be too easy since beyond the plumes of beautiful desert landscapes, there’s little else of consequence in this simulated genre performance.

Film Review: 'Beyond the Reach'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ With a homicidal big game hunter as its chief antagonist, Jean-Baptiste Léonetti's Beyond the Reach (2014) has a ripped from the headlines topicality, but unfortunately this plodding thriller consistently fails to engage. Michael Douglas plays John Madec, a high-flying finance mogul who likes to relax by taking trophies of wild, rare, if not actually endangered species. He doesn't particularly enjoy hunting, he assures his young tracker Ben (Jeremy Irvine), finding it tedious - he just likes to have heads on his walls. Madec turns up in the small town bordering the Mojave Desert in his $500,000 SUV with his specialist rifle and greases the palms of the local constabulary into letting him hunt a bighorn sheep.

This week’s new films

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation | Hot Pursuit | The Cobbler | Iris | Beyond The Reach | Cub | Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder | Man With A Movie Camera

After four previous instalments of Mission Nearly Impossible But Somehow They Pulled It Off, you know where you’re going here, and there’s often a feeling you’ve been there before: exotic locations, opera assassinations, car chases, high-tech MacGuffins, and a plot that puts Cruise’s spy crew out in the cold. But the bar is still pretty high, especially in terms of action set-pieces and authentic-looking daredevil stunts, which are surely a better outlet for Tom Cruise’s excessive zeal than Scientology.

Beyond The Reach Review

  • TheMovieBit
It's not often these days that two Michael Douglas movies come along at the same time, however his character in Beyond The Reach couldn't be further from the inventor / superhero mentor he plays in Ant-Man. Set in the Mojave desert, this survival thriller offers up it's fair share of entertainment in it's cat-and-mouse style tale of murder and deception but sells itself short when it comes to a fully plausible plot. Young tracker Ben is going through something of a crisis in his personal life when a wealthy insurance broker, Madec arrives in town with an array of expensive weaponry and a set of flashy wheels. Madec is keen to be be shown around the harsh landscape that borders the town, wanting to hunt some big game while closing a deal. It isn't long before Madec lands the pair of them into some serious trouble and decides that Ben, rather than him,

Beyond the Reach Review

“Beyond this point, there will be monsters” says a pensive, gravelly-voiced Michael Douglas. The venerable star of Jean-Baptiste Léonetti’s Beyond the Reach is not far wrong either, as this character drama set out in the unforgiving landscape of the Mojave Desert very quickly becomes a dark cat-and-mouse horror flick. Problem is, it’s just not a

Can’t-Man: Reed’s Marvel Entry Positions Rudd as Dubious Franchise Tangent

Evidence of Marvel’s continuing imperviousness to even the most promising of fashionable script doctors is Ant-Man, an adaptation of one of the brand’s more obscure super hero offerings, featuring a protagonist whose transformative power lies in the most unassuming of eponymous spirit animals. With a screenplay tinkered on by Adam McKay and Paul Rudd following the original plans of Edgar Wright to direct from a script he wrote with Joe Cornish, one would expect a modicum of self-aware ridiculousness to beam this trifling entity into a rudimentary chunk of entertainment. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case, despite the attempts of overly qualified cast members to energetically elevate unfortunate swaths of dialogue like “Get on the damn ant!” Directed by Peyton Reed, whose last theatrical feature was 2008’s Jim Carrey comedy Yes Man (which perhaps describes his

Michael Douglas on the dark sorcery that de-aged him for Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

Michael Douglas on the dark sorcery that de-aged him for Marvel's 'Ant-Man'
The first time I interviewed Michael Douglas may have been the single worst interview moment of my life. After all, Douglas is a legend, a guy who has been part of this business his whole life, as accomplished as a producer as he is an actor. I could spend an entire day just talking to him about "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" or what it was like to do a TV series with Karl Malden in the '70s. The interview was supposed to be for "Last Vegas," the film he did with Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, and Kevin Kline. They put all four of them together for the interview, which would be a daunting room under the best of circumstances. Since the movie wasn't screened for me the night before the interviews, I walked into that room not having seen a single frame of the film. And

Michael Douglas thinks American actors are too "asexual" to get leading man roles

Michael Douglas thinks American actors are too
Michael Douglas has some very serious complaints about "a crisis in young American actors" happening these days.

The two-time Academy Award has built a career with diverse roles ranging from a ladies' man in Basic Instinct and The American President to the deeply disturbed in Beyond the Reach and Falling Down.

Speaking to The Independent, Douglas offered his opinions on why few current actors are capable of having a career like his.

"There's something going on with young American actors - both men and women - because the Brits and Australians are taking many of the best American roles from them," he explained.

"Clearly, it breaks down on two fronts. In Britain they take their training seriously while in the States we're going through a sort of social media, image-conscious thing rather than formal training.

"Many actors are getting caught up in this image thing which is going on to affect their range.

Excitement Is Just A Little "Beyond The Reach"

In Beyond the Reach, Jeremy Irvine (best known for playing the lead role in War Horse) stars as Ben, a young tracker who has taken on the “family business” of serving as the one-man search and rescue operation of a small town on the borders of the unforgiving Mojave Desert. Rather than join his girlfriend, Laina (Hannah Mangan Lawrence) in Denver where she is starting college on a swim team scholarship, Ben remains behind--and is soon enlisted by the local sheriff to take a brash big-game hunter named John Madec out into the desert to hunt bighorn sheep. Unfortunately for Ben, he doesn’t immediately realize how dangerous of a predator Madec truly is.

'Chappie', 'Run All Night', 'Wild Tales', 'Newsroom' and More on DVD & Blu-ray This Week

Wild Tales Because it's in a foreign language Wild Tales was never going to be a massive hit stateside, but trust me, this is a movie you're going to want to give a shot as six short stories come together for a wildly hysterical anthology of revenge gone wrong. You can read my theatrical review right here.

Run All Night Sean's review of this one was just posted this morning (read it here) and he seems to have had mostly the same impression I had when seeing it in theaters (read my review here), which is to say it's something of a ho hum actioner, but does sport some solid performances.

Spirited Away (Blu-ray) This is probably my favorite Hayao Miyazaki film and it might have actually been the first of his I saw, I can't quite remember. However, if you're looking to get into the master animated filmmaker's work

Weekend Box Office: Three new films debut in the top 10 as ‘Furious 7′ holds steady

James Wan’s Furious 7 continued defending its position this weekend as the year’s first blockbuster as it earned $29.1 million, winning the box office for the third weekend in a row. The feature also widened its lead as the highest grossing film of 2015 to date, earning more than 2014’s fourth place finisher Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the process.

However, the film was joined by two newcomers in the top 10, as the comedy sequel Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and the horror feature Unfriended finished in second and third place respectively. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, the sequel to the 2009 Kevin James vehicle, took in $24 million, while Unfriended finished with $16 million to round out the top three. The two were joined in the top ten by fellow newcomer Monkey Kingdom, as the Disney documentary took in $4.7 million to finish in seventh place.
