Critic Reviews for Beyond The Fire

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

  • As well-intentioned as it is deathly dull, this moody, London-set indie attempts to fuse a sprawling, right-on social agenda with a tenderly wrought mismatched romance and doesn't manage to say anything interesting about either.

  • The acting, script and production values rarely rise above film-school level and, once she has drawn him some anatomical diagrams (really!), the bedroom scenes are just awful.

  • This is high-stakes drama, bordering on realist melodrama. There are some awkward moments. Yet its heartfelt, unironic belief in the power of love is attractive.

  • It's frightfully sincere and the sex scenes are a whole new level of unconvincing.

  • Quite simply one of the more embarrassing films we've ever seen, Beyond The Fire is bad in a way that only a film aspiring to deal with a serious, sensitive subject and falling flat on its face can be.

  • Loathe to say it, but even after the closing stats about rape and the amount of compensation paid out by the Vatican, Beyond The Fire has little more resonance than a Madonna video.
