The deadliest animal is… MAN! It’s an oft quoted phrase and it would seem that it’s true in Beyond The Reach, where Michael Douglas decides he’d really like to shoot him some Jeremy Irvine.
Douglas play a rich man who hires a local to take him on a desert hunting trip. However the arrogant, overly confident rich guy thinks he knows it all, which leads him to making a terrible mistake and shooting someone dead that he thought was an animal. Irvine wants to do the right thing, but Douglas isn’t so keen and so ends up hunting Jeremy in order to keep his secret quiet.
It’s the sort of b-movie premise that fills the straight-to-video shelves on a weekly basis, but this is Douglas doing what he does best – bringing a little Gordon Gekko to the sun-baked desert – while Irvine looks suitable freaked out by what’s going on.
The film is in cinemas and on VOD on April 17th in the US. No UK date is currently set. [Read more…]
