    An anomalous adventure, two parts Beowulf and one part Dragonslayer - maybe a bit of Predator, too. Outlander is an average action flick hiding some interesting, sometimes beautiful vignettes. Sadly, our only glimpses of these are shown through a dream-haze or verbal exposition. The Viking part is not done terribly well, and Jack Huston sounds way too much of a luvvie to be taken seriously as a Norse warrior. The "shields" sequence is ridiculous, as are countless scenes that seem to have little purpose other than to try and look "cool". Kudos to the writers/director however, for creating a sympathetic figure out of a beastie. Full Review »

    Much better than expected.
    Hard core Sci-Fi mixed with a some fantasy.
    Very good special effects. Solid acting. Rewarding plot.

    Great sci-fi flick! The acting was great and the characters were memorable. Special effects were well. Don't listen to the critics and check this film out! Full Review »
