Editorial Reviews

Millionairess Christine Sanders (Carol Alt) learns that her son has been kidnapped by his grandfather (Omar Sharif), a fanatic Emir who wants the child to be the next prince of the desert. she hires ex-CIA mercenary Tom Burton (Rutger Hauer) to bring him back. Against the advice of her lawyer ( Elliott Gould), she decides to go with him into great danger. Music Score by Ennio Morricone ( The Food, the Bad and the Ugly, The Untouchables). 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.

Format: VHS Tape
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.

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.

I like Rutger Hauer as an actor, but he is really good in some movies and really bad in others, not because of his acting but the movies are just garbage and sloppily done. This movie is a loser all the way. Reminds me of Ishtar. Big name actors but nobody really does anything. People are just waiting to do something in some scenes.

One of Rutger Hauer's best. If you area fan, a great addition to your collection. "Wanted Dead or Alive" and "Nighthawks" were his best, but of a much higher quality film and budget.

I have seen this movie a couple of times. It is an old movie true however, this kind of thing is STILL HAPPENING when Americans are involved. It shows just what can happen when ones counterpart is a Middle Easterner! They in most cases have the upper hand. So although the movie is old, its plot is still applicable in today's time. This type of action still occurs.

I have been a Rutger Hauer fan since Ladyhawke and Blind Fury, so after reading the plot and some reviews of Beyond Justics, I assumed it would be a pretty good movie. Oh boy was I wrong. The movie itself is barely OK, some good action scenes, but a pretty weak plot and the action scenes looked as if they were shot in the 70s and not in the 90s. But the quality of the DVD was terrible. The cover was cheaply done, not even printed right, and the DVD quality was grainy, worse than copying VHS to DVD, and the sound was horrid. It's beyond me how amazon.com can sell such a low quality product. Keep your VHS if you like the movie.

Supermodel, actress and model Carol Alt is one hot model. Dolph Lungren is great actor. Omar Sharif is also a great actor. Ennio Morricone provides a beautiful soundtrack to some other movie which is not this one. Either that or someone put all of the music in the wrong place accidentally. There were at least 2 great Mercedes Benzes featured in this film. Carol Alt is very convincing as a long leggy, powerful media mogul in skirt suits. I found the camel sounds to be very realistic. Omar Sharif rides a white stallion brilliantly. The other guys really don't get much development as characters, which too bad because most of them don't die. I was totally unconvinced by one cheap prop in particular, which was the stinger missile. It was a plumbing pipe, painted black with a handle taped to it. If that's a stinger missile, then I have ten of them. There were some explosions which looked quite good. And a sandstorm which could have been better. But there were lots of camels and horses. One horse was definitely injured during filming, at least emotionally. How would you like if some one snuck out from behind a bush and whacked you in the knees so that you fell face first into the sand. How does a horse get sand out of his mouth and eyes? He hasn't any hands to wash his face with. Thus, one star.

If I had to describe this movie in one word, it would be "OUTSTANDING!" The scenery, music, acting, and cast are all far above the quality of what emerges from Hollywood today. The variety of weaponry shown is of interest to anyone with an interest in firearms, even if the 'Stinger' is not a perfect replica. The fact that the really evil character meets his fate in the end at the hands of Omar Shariff, using a Jed Clampett-style flintlock, is a nice touch, as well as an earlier humorous reference to Clint Eastwood's timeless quote. Innocent HUMAN BEINGS are KILLED by drunk drivers EVERY DAY, so the loss of ONE horse, in the interest of realism, needs to be kept in perspective. I would have used at least one Rolls Royce in place of the Mercedes cars, but that's a minor point. I stumbled upon this movie by accident originally, as it was on a triple-feature DVD which I bought at a 2nd hand outlet. That's ironic, as it will remain one of the finest movies I've seen in over 50yrs. of films...
