Keep your eyes to the skies. Don’t go out at night. And, whatever you do, don’t fall in love…
Beyond is a British science-fiction shock-fest which sees alien-invasion survivors Cole (Richard J. Danum) and Maya (Gillian MacGregor) embarking on a journey to salvage a life for themselves in a ruined UK. But all the while, a giant spaceship looms over the earth, abducting anyone foolish enough to go out after hours.
With the trailer hitting over a million views, anticipation for this low-budget / high-ambition British science-fiction thriller is high.
The movie itself is suspenseful and intense but borderlines being slightly rubbish. Both Cole and Maya’s relationship and acting skills are awkward from start to finish, there are weird silences, awkward pauses and how on earth these characters are meant to develop throughtout the movie are beyond me, they cannot even speak to each other with any fluidity or sustainability.
