An angry, rough, and flat-out boring revenge flick.

Outlaw commits an unforgivable offense. It makes the vigilante genre boring.

Racho-macho vigilante action with a cockney accent, Outlaw is made to seem more important than it really is by the presence of Sean Bean and Bob Hoskins in key roles

Give me a bit of the old ultraviolence any day. Just make me care about it.

Both the pic's power and its problems stem from Love deliberately taking no moral position nor offering any solutions; he gives his audience what it wants at a gut level and doesn't wimp out at the end.

Strong language and bone-crunching tear-ups won't appeal to the faint-hearted - but for fans of in-your-face action, this is the business.

Leaves you wondering what it wants to say and whom it's supposed to be aimed at.

Crime-revenge-porn without any style or wit or convincing narrative.

The actors are all too good for this kind of stuff, but they do the business, while Sam McCurdy's sharp cinematography and Stuart Gazzard's slick editing keep it all moving swiftly.

The characters never convince and it spirals into plain silliness.

An ill-thought out film where raw, electric violence sits uneasily with moral posturing. It's time to call the cops...

It's not the explicit violence and primal anger that is worrying, it's the fact that Love may be tapping into something simmering in the nation's psyche.

The kind of film the tabloids will call to ban. Don't take that as a reason to see it.

Potentially interesting premise and some good performances, but it quickly falls apart.

While this feels like a missed opportunity, it could be worse.

It looks great, and touches on some important issues, but doesn't seem sure what to do with them.
