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.

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.

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.

Outlandish would have been a better title for a film that's great fun and quite exciting before eventually outstaying its welcome.

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.

An excellent creature feature. A B movie in the best sense of the word, Outlander could teach many of the so-called summer blockbusters a thing or two about character, story and performance.

Outlander is a cracking bit of fantasy adventure, bristling with cool special effects and battle sequences. OK, so at heart nothing makes much sense, but it moves at a fair old pace.

Sure, it's cheesy and the acting is ropey at times, but the monster is scary enough to have you screaming in your sleep.

Howard McCain's film comes perilously close to being risible at times, but it is never dull.

Do you need to be told it's preposterous? Probably not. But you may be pleasantly surprised to hear it's also quite enjoyable.

Beowulf meets Aliens in a rip-roaring mixture of B-movie clichs, wooden acting, dumb dialogue and bloodthirsty action scenes. Indulgent fantasy fans of all ages should find it a guilty pleasure.

Vikings vs aliens - what's not to love? This delivers pretty much everything you could hope for from a movie whose premise basically boils down to Vikings fighting aliens.
January 23, 2009
An unexpectedly enjoyable science-fiction adventure that should be generating louder fanboy buzz than it has so far.
January 22, 2009
Its blend of crappy special effects, cheesy acting and straight-faced silliness is enough to provide viewers with a taste for camp trash with a couple of hours of cheerfully ridiculous mind-rot.

...like "Reign of Fire" crossed with "Beowulf" spiced with a dash of "Alien."...destined for a cult audience.
