Since I was young, I have enjoyed tales of action and exploration, and the lazier days of my boyhood summers often found me with book in hand as I traveled deep into a volcano with Jules Verne in Journey to the Center of the Earth or sought justice for the young Scotsman David in Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson. Over time, my taste in adventure stories evolved to include summer blockbuster action films. In recent years, however, most of these movies include content that excludes those of us who prefer faith-based, family-friendly fare.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered an action and adventure film that not only embraced the transformative power of faith but also delivered its message with great entertainment, blending historical elements, treachery, bravery, and suspense with faith, virtue and redemption.
Plus some pretty impressive special effects.
The appeal of Beyond the Mask to families is no accident. In fact, it’s funding was launched on Kickstarter by the Burns family, who in the early years wrote, directed and produced several properties that initially appealed to the Christian homeschool market but extended to a niche, international audience. With resources in hand, the Burns Family Studios launched an ambitious project, bringing in a diverse group of talent to deliver an action/adventure feature film that was faith-affirming and family-friendly.
With historical characters such as Benjamin Franklin and George Washington making an appearance, and veteran actor John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings) playing the movie’s ultimate bad guy, Beyond the Mask will thrill fans of the action and adventure film genre.
