Trivia

When the scientists are dressed in a yellow full body suit, the masks are, in fact, diving full face snorkel masks, without the breathing tube. Even the attachment for action cameras are there. See more »

Goofs

The fingers seen breaking up clumps of soil on the alien planet seem just to be human fingers in white gloves, not the mechanical fingers of Jessica's 'human 2.0' body. See more »

visually arresting, but...
6 September 2018 | by urthpainterSee all my reviews

The beyond is not a unique film, borrowing elements from Robocop, Europa Report, and other movies that strive for that real looking (but fake) documentary look. Robocop and Europa Report? Must be a good movie then, right? Wrong!

This movie drifts from idea to idea, and when it borrows - it forgets to borrow the most important film quality: Entertainment. I think this movie might be a good watch for people who multitask while a movie is on. Because whenever you take this movie in, there is generally something of visually interest. But actually sitting down, focusing and absorbing the content? One is pelted with a lot of unfocused ideas that kinda tell a story regarding future exploration and alien contact.

If there is one thing I really like about this movie is the optimistic take on the unknown, in this current era of intense social cynicism.

Ultimately though - I felt the film lacked a clear narrative, lacked consistent pacing, and has marginal success in terms of casting, acting, directing.

not unwatchable, but imo an average 5/10
