Beowulf with aliens and lots of gore, violence.

Outlander is a fluid genre exercise that satisfies cravings for action and Norse mythology in one fell swoop. It's a full-bodied adventure movie that's responsive and reverential to the needs of sci-fi escapism.

Vikings vs. aliens -- Outlander is probably the best possible version of whatever movie you've already made in your head from reading those first three words.

A mead hall party feels like a Iron Age version of "Cheers," right down to the "Norm!" greeting for one character. It's one of many leaden diversions from what should be a lean, economical, brutal B-movie of aliens, Vikings and alternate timelines.

This is honestly better than all the big Hollywood blockbusters that have been released so far this summer.

...ultimately establishes itself as a fun little endeavor that boasts as irresistible a premise as one could possibly imagine.

About as subtle as being punched in the face by an angry Norwegian, it delivers everything you could possibly want from a movie about Vikings and alien monsters.

Outlander is a perfectly acceptable mashup of "Alien," "Predator" and just about every Viking flick you've ever seen.

Most of the time, though, Howard McCain's movie is plain dull.

The creature is about as convincing as a furry dragon carried through Chinatown.

Stunning special effects and bloody battle sequences make it just the ticket for a popcorn monster fantasy. If you want to engage your brain, best avoid.

As clunky and ineffective as an iron-age weapon on an alien predator's hide, this retro-SF rationalisation of Beowulf could have done with less sword and more pen.
April 25, 2009
With plenty of spattered blood and gore and some nice homages to the Beowulf tale the movie isn't without thrills, though its conceptual ambitions are rarely fulfilled in their execution.

Outlandish would have been a better title for a film that's great fun and quite exciting before eventually outstaying its welcome.
April 24, 2009
A film version of fish and chips - humble, honest fare that's ludicrous, inventive, gory within limits, and has a cast having so much fun it's hard not to be swept along with them. And besides, you can't have nouvelle cuisine every night of the week.

Daft, obvious but hugely enjoyable, 'Outlander' is superior trash.
April 24, 2009
Sadly, the kooky premise of Outlander solidifies quickly into formula: monster is fought, fair maiden won, kingship gained and past errors redeemed with no real surprises along the way.
April 24, 2009
We are now deep, deep, deep into nerd territory, so deep you will get a nosebleed in your diving suit.
April 24, 2009
As the ginger offspring of a Ridley Scott/Peter Jackson gangbang, Outlander is a wannabe B movie classic that's so shit, it's just... shit!
