Nice Effort but Not even close to "The Secret"

"Ok first of all I have been studying metaphysics and the law of attraction for over 20 years. Many deliberate manifestations so yes it does work. Oh and I do "get it" even if this review is negative. Sorry this movie was just not all that good.
I was hoping for another secret must like us fans of the movie "Aliens" have been wanting another "Aliens" and all squeals have fallen short.
And unfortunately this film falls short of what I was also wanting another "The Secret" the Original Edition (which I have watched at least 100 times.) Not the "Extended Edition" which should be named "We cut Ester Hicks/Abraham-Hicks out becuase we did not want to honor our royalty agreement any longer" The vibration and feeling it totally different. But I digress back to this film.
First off the production values are awful, bad green screen, the picture looks pixelated and it make me feel like they just don't care enough to do it right. If your going to ride on the success of the secret and sell to the same audience which is what they are attempting to do by calling it "Beyond The Secret" then you MUST have the same level of production and visual quality or you are going to disappoint people(becuase the secret was a pleasure to watch.) That's just smart marketing. Being what this movie is they should have given it a different name because the Secret is a hard act to follow.
Now for the content...becuase I don't mind watching a straight up lecture with a person standing at the podium shot on a home video camera if the content is good.
Next this is not really "Beyond" it more like "The Remedial Secret" or "Special Ed Secret" for people not ready to manifest on higher levels.
It starts with Bob Proctor basically says most of what he said in the secret but less of the important stuff on the subconscious mind.
Most of this movie is about getting you to take action rather than just doing the visualization. It makes it sound like more work which many people feel is what should be taught and thought that "The Secret" was just pie in the sky and not realistic and left that out. Yet funny how so many people have stories of manifestations including myself.
The truth is there are many different levels of Manifestation from those that require work to those that do not require anything but intent and desire(I personally enjoy the later the most) This film is for those that want to manifest on the first level and are not ready to move on to higher levels of manifestation yet in my opinion. I have manifested with work and really with almost none at all in life. So all levels have their place. But hey you have to walk before you can run and it all depends on your goals as well some do require physical work.
For me I did not find this all that informative (but I have been studying 20 years I did not learn much from "The Secret" but it really inspired me) So if you are new to this stuff you might learn some good things here.
To me it was not all that inspiring and actually rather limiting in terms of what is possible and how you can achieve it.
This film at times seems to seek to take the "Hows" back from the universe and get you to figure out the "Hows" yourself and one author even gives you very good process on how to do this by moving beyond your own limited thinking.
Let me sum it up this way. The way I found "The Secret" I had been studying Law of Attraction and out of the blue someone me sent me a link to a let's say free version of "The Secret" on the internet I watched it and was filled with joy and empowered. Right after I looked for "The Secret" Web site and ordered the DVD becuase I WANTED to pay them for that amazing, empowering work they produced. I bought several more copies until the pulled the "Extended Version Scam" Which totally turned me off. You can actually feel the vibrational difference between the two.
If today someone had sent me a link "Beyond The Secret" after watching it I would have just deleted it and be glad I did have to pay to see it.
Over all nothing has come close to the Original Secret Movie yet and I have seen and own almost all of them...
The Secret *****
The Secret Extended ***
The Secret Behind The Secret **** (This is the best for just Law of Attraction Information)
Pass It On *** (like this movie but focused more on business techniques/advice)
The Moses Code ** (Depressing in my opinion, not a feel good movie)
You can Heal Your Life **** (but the audio track was too low, maybe fixed now I hope?)
What the Bleep **** (Started this whole industry)
What the Bleep Down The Rabbit Hole ***** Great 6 hours on random play!
DeePak Chopra How to Know GOD **** (Great for a deeper view of the quantum filed and GOD)
If this movie is right for you then you will be attracted to it and get something from it. I personally feel your time would be better spent using Tony Robbins Get The Edge if you want practical first level manifestation information, 10 x the cost but worth every penny!"
Negative reviewers "don't get it"

"If you are expecting a Hollywood movie with flashy special effects or the fluff of "The Secret" you will be disappointed as some of the other reviewers are. If you are looking for an EDUCATIONAL, to the point, concise film showing you the nuts and bolts of how to apply what you learned in the original , the law of attraction, then this is the film for you.
As an educational video, "Beyond the Secret" packs a great deal of information at a steady pace - and NO, you can't just watch it once and "get it". It is a dvd you will want to watch over and over to master the concepts.
And the teachers don't talk fast like they are told to "rush" as another reviewer wrote . They are unscripted and talking from their hearts and from experience.
The negative reviews seem to be posted by those who didn't understand the original "The Secret" and viewed "Beyond the Secret" with the negative eye that makes readers know they just "don't get it".
You can't go wrong with this dvd."
Not the sequel

"I rented this movie through NETFLIX, and I suggest you do the same. Most movies like "The Secret" and "What the bleep" are available in Netflix, so don't waste your money buying it first!
First off, let me say that I have watched "The secret" and was very excited to see "Beyond the secret". You should know, however, that this is NOT the sequel to "The Secret", but an expansion of the principles talked about in the first movie. In The Secret, the basic principle being talked about was how INTENTION can change your reality, and in Beyond, the base principle is that you need ACTION to complete the process. Both movies together make up the two steps needed to actually create change in your life. INTENTION (in the first movie) and ACTION (in the second).
So here is my critique of Beyond.
Cons: This film is not the sequel like so many people thought it was going to be. It is basically just the second step of the process to help people affect change in their lives. There really isn't a plot line, this is not a movie that follows the traditional style of story telling with characters, plot, conflict, and resolution. I WOULD NOT recommend this movie for ENTERTAINMENT purposes, which The Secret has more of. The movie is not really exciting with special effects and drama, and should not be watched for those purposes.
The quality of the film-making is also sub par. I'm not sure why this is, but sometimes the images are a tad grainy (which I've seen in other reviews) and the motion seems a tad choppy. When I was watching it, AT PARTS (not throughout the whole movie) I wondered if they actually recorded some of the speakers through a high speed internet connection from a places off studio. There was not much variety in the movie actually. Most of the time, you watch various speakers against a background making short, quick sound bites in reference to a particular subject. It really could of been less "infomercial-y" (yes, that's a technical term)
The bottom line is that you really SHOULD watch this movie. It is the second part of the the process that helps you affect change in your life, which is the ACTION part. This movie should NOT be watched for it's entertainment purposes, but rather for it's CONTENT which is OUTSTANDING. If you can get over that this is not some Hollywood, special effects, high budget film, then you will see that the actual CONTENT of what they're saying is spot on. Let the words sink into your head, and it will do you great things and help you achieve what you want to achieve. This movie, watched with The Secret, can help you form a more complete picture of how to go and make changes in your life. I stress again, the CONTENT is great, and should be watched for that, and no other reason. I feel bad for people that mislead potential watchers because of low ratings, because they didn't feel it was entertaining enough, or the quality was sub par. WATCH THE MOVIE. GET THE CONTENT. It's about what they're saying anyway!
It's not the sequel to The Secret...

"Do get it and it's not as I originally thought and often presented as the sequel to the wonderful movie The Secret. The production leaves much to be desired. I am a fan of the message/s and of Bob Proctor and I believe you would be better off getting these similar messages elsewhere."
