Critic Reviews for Beyond The Fire

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

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.

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.

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.

June 19, 2009 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

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.

June 19, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.
