As far as zero-budget genre film-making goes, Outerworld isn't too bad. That unfortunately doesn't mean that it is any good though . . .

Audience Reviews for Beyond the Rising Moon


I guess they expected high-waisted "mom-jeans", aviator glasses, 80s hair, and payphones to be back in style in 2074. An enslaved android defects with the information she stole for her bosses. She escapes with a Han Solo-esque character as they try to get to a super-rare abandoned alien ship her bosses hoped to own. Then a crappy love story. Real cheap sci-fi with a decent story, pretty bad acting, and decent action scenes. Upon further reading I've learned it was originally called "Beyond the Rising Moon" and in this version CGI sequences were added years later, replacing many of the original miniatures (boo!).


Holy crap, what a bad movie! One redeeming item: It uses the "green flowing code" on computer screens that later shows up --- in much-refined form --- in the Matrix. That tidbit is about 10 seconds of screen time, so I just saved you more than an hour of watching this dud. You're welcome.
