This is a really sweet film and also filled with space stuff plus a little mystery thrown in. That may not sound great and yet it is a really good film. A real cult favourite and well worth getting.

A Journey For Anyone Who Dares To Dream 7 April 2000
By JAMES SPAIN - Published on
Everyone who has walked the face of this earth has at one time in his or her life, dreamed of becoming an extraordinary person. It is in our nature to dream of growing into something unique and beautiful. The journey of life is and will never be an easy voyage. Some will fall...and some will succeed; It's up to the individual to turn that dream into a reality. In this movie BEYOND THE STARS, Eric (Christian Slater) has his dream in sight and is willing to do anything to one day accomplish it. Eric wants to walk among the stars and touch the face of the moon. When he is sent to his father's house in Ceder Bay Oregon for shooting a model rocket through a school window; He realizes that an ex-astronaut (Martin Sheen) is living in the same town as his father. To Eric this man is a legend, someone who has been where he one day wants to go. Eric meets a beautiful girl who just so happens to know this living hero. But Paul Andrews (The Astronaut), is nothing but; He is now a drunk, who wants to be left alone and never wants to talk about his time away from our home. Eric is severly hurt but eventually decides to do what ever it takes to be Paul's friend. Eric gets his break when Mr. Andrews offers him to help in constructing a grand greenhouse. Knowing that he won't get any money, Eric still agrees to help him. And through this decision they grow as true friends and there friendship eventually brings Eric and his father closer than they've ever been before. What Eric doesn't know is that some years earlier on Paul's last mission to the moon; He stumbled upon something magical buried within a crater. And as he was attempting to uncover the ancient relic a heavy cloud of radiation caught up with him, taking a piece of his life as it passed by. Paul knew that he was poisoned and that it was too late to escape the wrath of the deadly cloud; So he ordered his men to safely lock the hatch to the pod. They had to set helplessly, knowing that through the passage of many years the radiation would eventually take the rest of him. Paul decided in the dark of the lunar surface that the relic would be his and that no one would ever find out - that is, until Eric comes along. This story is so inspiring. It asks so many important questions and shows us that friendship is an important part of life; Without it this world would be an empty place. This movie in a way models our own life - We all dream - We all want our privacy - And we all question our own existence. BEYOND THE STARS is a film that will forever live within the hearts of every dreamer. It has shown me to never let go of a dream - And to never deny friendship - Both are extremely powerful and vital to every human being. So friend, if you are down and need to be lifted up beyond the stars - Find this movie, or buy it whenever it is re-released.

An unexpected pleasure 24 Sept. 2006
By Alan Smithee - Published on
Format: DVD
When I read the description, and the film's title, I was expecting some

pretty cheesy 80's TV treacle. However, as a sucker for movies that

involve NASA in some regard, particularly those that deal with the

Apollo Program, I had to give it a try.

I was very surprised, then, to find myself being drawn into it and

caring about the characters. It was much better than I had expected,

and the performances were quite solid. Sheen and Foxworth were very

good, Slater was reasonably believable, and Abraham stole his scenes.

The female characters were sympathetic and believable. I was also

surprised how front and center Apollo was - it didn't just serve as a

disposable backdrop for the drama. All in all Beyond the Stars was well

worth the viewing, but I agree that the sci-fi ending did cheapen the

drama slightly. And the title - whew - they could have done better than


I have to chuckle, however, at a description I read of Slater's

character being a "troubled" teenager. Ha! Most people should be so

lucky to have a kid that respects his parents, wants to follow in his

dad's footsteps and study science and math, and plans to go to MIT.

Yeah - that kid's a real disaster.

Anyway, a few of the technical space details were off (particularly

during the Huntsville trip), and the music was pretty dated, but those

are mostly nits. Overall this was a reasonably intelligent and mature

drama with a strong Apollo background - and an unexpected pleasure.

martin sheen is one o f my favorite actors. i first seen this little gem on a vhs video rental store in 1990. picked it up..and sat back..thinking ok..a father and son type movie. NASA AND APOLLO WERE MENTION ENOUGH TO MAKE THIS A MAN CAVE MOVIE !!! while in the army i found a vhs copy for 5 bucks got it and watched it in the barracks ( alaska is cold and perfect for beer and movies) ok..the movie is great in the sense the astronaut and his troubles and friends in the movie. the kid ( christian ) is good at playing the role of i cant do nothing right and im doing all good to be a astronaut, girl troubles father troubles etc...the music is 80's dated..the story is good for a date movie..small kids will get bored with the "talking" this i snot an action moviee its an emotion tha is well played..and i have purchased th emovie on dvd. i wish there would have been more special features. the ending is there..but should have not been so ............CHOPPED !! IT S OVER anyway its a movie to enjoy. if they showed it today on would be a LIFETIME MOVIE. it has the same feel as those. this is in my collection next to the CALF. KID WITH SHEEN AS WELL. another great movie. MADE FOR TV IN 73. HOPE THIS GIVES A LITTLE LIGHT FOR YA.
