As far as faith-based movies go, or even action-packed adventures, Beyond The Mask is far from typical.
Beyond The Mask is both high action and with a strong Christian message, but special effects and superb photography combined with a really good plot make this film comparable to anything Hollywood has produced. Add to that the historic thread and top-notch acting and you have a winner.
The plot centers around Will Reynolds, a Brit who is top mercenary for the British East India Company. When Reynolds comes to the rude awakening that he has been hoodwinked and framed, he makes a run for it in the American colonies hiding his true identity behind a metaphorical mask. It is in this setting, posing as someone he is not, that he falls in love with Charlotte and is also introduced to faith.
But it does not take long before Will’s enemy and former employer—the very man who had conspired against him—creeps into his life again and unmasks him, albeit by the use of deceit.
Will’s only hope is to attempt to redeem his past and prove his sincerity to his beloved Charlotte—and to gaining the trust of Ben Franklin—both of which lead him to adopt the courageous role of a type of Zorro figure who uncovers evil plots. Thus, Will Reynolds finds himself donning a real mask.
Beyond The Mask is the brilliant creation of cousins Chad and Aaron Burns, two young men who are credits to the power of homeschool education. Brought to us by Burns Family Studios, this stunning movie comes out in theaters on June 5th.

Not your typical Christian movie—but clearly Christ-centered, and absolutely worth seeing. As MoviePilot.com says, “Simply put—Amazing!”
