Critic Reviews for Beyond The Reach
Michael Douglas chews the spectacular desert scenery in this silly, enjoyable survival thriller.
Ultimately, the take-away from "Beyond the Reach" is this: Don't go into the desert with a guy in a blazer. Even if he offers you a martini.
Watching Douglas behave like a narcissistic scumbag is an absolute pleasure, one in which viewers of action-adventure "Beyond the Reach" can happily indulge.
A deadly, desert-set game of cat and mouse that is tired and beyond plausibility.
"Beyond the Reach" is a grueling, unsatisfying thriller that fails the logic test in spectacular ways.
Audience Reviews for Beyond The Reach
Michael Douglas single-handedly carries this survival thriller against a pretty forgettable protagonist, whose relationship is initially rammed down our throats, for lack of a real background. The film looks gorgeous, the landscapes are fantastic, and there are moments of suspense. But at times, the chase is so cartoonishly random, you almost feel as if you're in a Roadrunner show. The solution is pretty disappointing. What remains is Douglas being great at what he does.
What promises to be a strong suspense story disappoints in delivering as an equally strong conclusion proves to be beyond the reach of the filmmaker. Nevertheless, there is some fine cinematography and decent script writing in the first two thirds of the film. Acting is adequate despite Douglas' at-times hammy performance.
