Daft, obvious but hugely enjoyable, 'Outlander' is superior trash.

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.

We are now deep, deep, deep into nerd territory, so deep you will get a nosebleed in your diving suit.

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!

An unexpectedly enjoyable science-fiction adventure that should be generating louder fanboy buzz than it has so far.

Outlander is a cheesy, low-budget, space alien Viking monster movie. And seemingly proud of it.

In its second half, Outlander falls apart completely, becoming nothing but a violent, mindless monster movie along the lines of Alien vs. Predator.

In Outlander, the nuttiest hunk of junk in many months, Viking warriors and a stoic intergalactic traveler join forces to combat an enormous beetle with whiplash stingers.

There isn't a single scene in this story about a traveler from another planet who crash-lands on Earth during the Iron Age that doesn't remind you of another, better movie.

By taking nonsense seriously Outlander never achieves camp. It's a comic book that's mistaken itself for scripture.

You can think about Outlander 16 different ways, and still arrive at the same conclusion: It just doesn't work.
January 22, 2009
An odd mishmash of genres with too much message and musing to be propulsive, and too much cornball monster movie to take seriously. But while the blend may not satisfy fans of pure action or pure drama, at least it gives them both a new flavor to try.

An enjoyably goofy hybrid of extraterrestrial sci-fi and Iron Age action.
January 22, 2009
I am tempted to describe the plot of Outlander as preposterous, but a movie about an alien spaceship crashing into a Viking fjord during the Iron Age is likely to be preposterous.

One of the more outlandish B-pictures to come out of the Great Movie Mash-up Machine known as The Weinstein Co.
