    Watch it. You'll like it. I haven't seen a fantasy/sci-fi flick like this since the good ol' before cgi back in the day Watch it. You'll like it. I haven't seen a fantasy/sci-fi flick like this since the good ol' before cgi back in the day movies. The genre is stuck being manipulated by Sci-fi Channel n' created into b-rated original made for tv movies. This one takes the freakin' cake. It's been a long time coming. If you hate lord of the Rings because of it's "boringness." This movie will brighten u up! Full Review »

    Why has no one mentioned the blatantly obvious Beowulf plotline? The original, not the Jolie crapfest. Its a great take on the ancient story, Why has no one mentioned the blatantly obvious Beowulf plotline? The original, not the Jolie crapfest. Its a great take on the ancient story, presenting a semi-plausible method to bring Beowulf's monster to life. Full Review »

    An anomalous adventure, two parts Beowulf and one part Dragonslayer - maybe a bit of Predator, too. Outlander is an average action flickAn 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 »
