  • This film really wants to be smart... [But] it's just a lot of death and destruction.

    January 16, 2021 | Full Review…
  • "Outside the Wire" is an efficient, fast-paced rollercoaster ride that's smart and buoyed by a razor-sharp screenplay and two magnetic performances.

    January 16, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The half-brained drudgery that Håfström's delivers here only leaves you with the regret that this war wasn't more fun to watch.

    January 16, 2021 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • The visual effects are decent, the cast is better than decent, and that's all, folks.

    January 15, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Outside the Wire can charitably be compared to the kind of "B" movies that studios used to churn out, and is best consumed by tempering expectations accordingly. Because unlike its futuristic hero, there's nothing special about it.

    January 14, 2021 | Full Review…
  • There's a more interesting film buried here and it's the small nuggets of debate about the military and artificial intelligence that keep us going through the bloated, almost two-hour runtime.
