Faith and Family: Beyond the Mask this 4th of July!

It is only fitting to celebrate our independence by going BEYOND THE MASK!

With people out and about and ready to gather, July 4th may be the biggest spectacle we've seen in years.

But we recommend you also celebrate our nation's independence and take a break from the heat and crowds by watching TheArchive's, BEYOND THE MASK.

Beyond the Mask, in beautiful 4K, is an action-packed adventure set in 1776 during the turmoil of the Revolutionary war, bringing history to life in a story filled with liberty, freedom, and faith.

Based on true events, the film features action, battles, and suspense, leading up to the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence. Andrew Cheney stars as William Reynolds, Kara Kilmer as Charlotte Holloway, Alan Madlane as Benjamin Franklin, and John Rhys-Davies
as the corrupt Charles Kemp in a performance Variety praised as, "bellicose, two dimensional villainy that makes for undeniably enjoyable viewing." Yes, he's indeed enjoyable to watch and you can also see him in movies like Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings. 

"The story, filled with energetic battles and personal skirmishes, rushes toward a climax that features the struggle for independence and those who would thwart it if possible. With themes highlighting forgiveness, redemption, and fighting for one’s beliefs, this amazing movie has earned our Dove Seal for ages 12 and older. It is about a historic time and features great settings, ships, sword fights, and romance. The film is a stunning visual feast!" - Edwin Carpenter,

While researching Beyond the Mask and other war movies, we realized that Hollywood hasn't paid as much attention to the Revolutionary War as one would expect.

While hundreds of Hollywood movies and series explore war, TheArchive's movies of the Great War, WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam, and other epic battles show a different side of these battles but few detail the American Revolution. 

Apart from Al Pacino's 1985 film Revolution, the Academy Award-nominated 1776, Cary Grant's The Howard's of Virginia, and Abbott & Costello's The Time of Their Lives, there's not a lot to watch.

Dynamic battles, personal skirmishes, sword fights, romance, and gorgeous set pieces are all safe for families: a recipient of the Dove Seal of approval for ages 12 and older. 

So before or after the fireworks check out Beyond the Mask and celebrate our freedom!

On behalf of TheArchive, please have a safe, healthy, reverential, and respectful July 4th.
