Cage and his team are back with Beyond: Two Souls in another attempt to tug at your heartstrings. Unfortunately their latest effort is typical of their prior work, in that while it remains stimulating, it’s simply another display of cinematic style over substance.
Beyond: Two Souls follows the curious tale of Jodie, an outcast at the youngest age thanks to her permanent bond to an omnipresent spirit known as Aiden. We don’t know why Aiden came to be attached to Jodie (or why everyone mispronounces his name as ‘Aye-den’ instead of ‘Aid-en’), but we learn very early on that he’s overbearingly protective of her, and sometimes violently so. -
