Movie Reviews

An underrated action movie.
AJ | Delaware, USA | 02/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie has been largely ignored by the general public. I suppose this may be partly due to the confusion about the title (it has been released as 'Desert Law', 'Law of the Desert' and 'Beyond Justice'). Nevertheless Beyond Justice is a fast-paced movie combining spectacular action, good acting and a plot, that is at least two steps above average for movies in this genre. The Maltin summary does not do this movie justice. The plot may have some twists in it, but it avoids the usual loose ends and I see no reason, why an action movie should have a completely predictable plot. The actors do a good job (Omar Sharif obviously enjoying himself as a conservative Arab Sheik and Rutger Hauer quite believable as a matter-of-fact mercenary) The camera work is downright spectacular, using the impressive landscape of the Sahara to great effect and the score is one of the best ever to be heard in action movies. On the whole this is a forgotten movie, that deserved a far better fate."
Decent B Movie with Omar Sharif

"This is a non-stop action adventure in which Carol Alt seeks out mercenary Rutger Hauer to retrive her kidnapped son from his arab grandfather (Omar Shariff). Explosive gunfire is everywher in this fast=paced feature combing spectacular action, superb acting, an intriguing plot, and breathtaking scenes shot in the Sahra desert."
Great Entertainment

"Loved the movie and have been trying to purchase it for some years. It has been brought out under quite a few names i.e. Maktub. Law of the Desert and Beyond Justice to name just two. Its great acting and I thoroughly enjoyed it."
Do not be fooled by the positive reviews

"I am quite sure that this is the worst action movie I have ever seen. Rutger Hauer is fair in it. Omar Sharif is good in it. Even these quality actors could not save this pantload. The sound was awful, The plot was almost nonexistant and full of more holes than a seive. I am shocked anyone could find this film entertaining. Luckily it has a very nice black plastic case, so it is not a total loss. I put my copy in the trash after I broke it. I would hate to think I had subjected the trashman or anyone else to this kind of vapid, tedious, film"
