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.

It cracks along at a fair old pace...even if it is in a direction you won't need sat-nav to predict.
April 24, 2009
This should have been a cracking genre piece - Vikings? Monsters? What's not to like? - even if Beowulf hadn't got there first. But despite the cool concept, it commits the cardinal sin of being a little too much on the dull side.
April 24, 2009
Combine this with a humourless screenplay and unimaginative direction, and Outlander is heavy going.
April 24, 2009
Cribbing desperately from The Lord Of The Rings, Reign Of Fire, and especially Beowulf, it's a snorgasbord of awfulness.
April 24, 2009
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.
April 24, 2009
Sure, it's cheesy and the acting is ropey at times, but the monster is scary enough to have you screaming in your sleep.
April 24, 2009
Howard McCain's film comes perilously close to being risible at times, but it is never dull.
April 24, 2009
Do you need to be told it's preposterous? Probably not. But you may be pleasantly surprised to hear it's also quite enjoyable.
April 24, 2009
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.
April 24, 2009
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.
April 24, 2009
To nobody's surprise, it's a rubbish but loveably camp shambles.
April 24, 2009
Outlander may very well have been pitched as Beowulf meets Predator, but it's like buying a tin of tuna steak and opening it to find it's chopped pork and ham.
April 24, 2009
With its depressing lack of humour failing to compensate for its budget-deficient action sequences, it almost makes the films of Uwe Boll look competent.
February 6, 2009
Becomes dismayingly conventional.
February 2, 2009
A sci-fi action period piece with generous doses of horror, romance, picturesque scenery, second-hand costumes, and cliche as far as the eye can see. Interested yet?
January 29, 2009
It's much too serious to succeed at the gaudy spectacle its concept promises.
January 27, 2009
As with Cloverfield, I started rooting for the monster to eat the people at a faster rate.
January 26, 2009
A potentially fun idea that's held back by sub-par writing and a slow as molasses beginning.
January 23, 2009
An unexpectedly enjoyable science-fiction adventure that should be generating louder fanboy buzz than it has so far.
