Title: Beyond the Mask DVD
Director: Chad Burns
Studio: Anderson Digital
My rating is 5 stars.
The movie is historically based, but with a fantasized turn. It’s about an assassin working for the East India Trading Company. He is double-crossed right after his final assignment and is forced to go into hiding. While he is in hiding, he meets a woman named Charlotte. She opens the door to a new life of peace and gives him an opportunity to know God. He finds romance with Charlotte. However, Charlotte’s uncle is a criminal mastermind leading the Company with a plot set for Philadelphia during the War for Independence on the eve of signing the Declaration for Independence.
The movie was good. It actually took certain historical events and gave them a fantasized turn that gave the movie a little bit more fictional action that was enjoyable and entertaining. It also had few Christian lessons about redemption and forgiveness. It depicts a man who tries to earn forgiveness from God, but learns that it is freely given. The man also learns God takes away our sins and turns them into something beautiful that honors Him. The movie also leaves an opening for a sequel.
I would recommend this movie to others because it shows that no matter how ugly sin is and no matter how hard the road to redemption can be, with God’s help anything is possible. The action and interesting plot will keep audiences glued to their seats. There were certain elements in the story that were fiction in nature and not necessarily accurate. Like for example the use of a 1700s sniper precision rifle, which such weapons weren’t in use until the mid-1800s near the time of the American Civil War. But other than little things like that, the movie was good and I think it sends a good message about finding God in a life of sin. So for those looking for a good Christian movie to watch that is action packed, has a good message and is historically based, then this is the movie to watch: Beyond the Mask.
