Outside the Wire Reviews

Page 1 of 4
January 22, 2021
Outside The Wire feels like a middling effort with an ineffective gimmick and undercooked script.
January 22, 2021
Fast-paced and sharply well-designed, this futuristic war thriller is packed with gritty action and seamless effects.
January 22, 2021
"Outside the Wire" passes the time, and there are worse crimes than being watchable and disposable.
January 21, 2021
Just an average sci-fi action movie with a lot less on its mind than it might have had.
January 21, 2021
Outside the Wire repeatedly pushes the central irony of pairing an emotionally detached human with a compassionate killing machine without drawing any meaningful conclusions from their contrasting personalities.
January 21, 2021
A by-the-numbers Stealth-meets-Training Day plod.
January 20, 2021
Journeyman director Mikael Håfström at least mines some decent Robocop-meets-Jason-Bourne acrobatics out of Leo, but adds little besides.
January 20, 2021
There's a rote quality to the presentation that grates as the movie builds to an ending that ends up pulling its punches.
January 20, 2021
Extremely violent sci-fi tale tackles war consequences.
January 19, 2021
A disappointingly tidy conclusion for what had the potential to be a far more challenging film.
January 19, 2021
The best one can do is warn that if you like expensive explosions and efficient camera crews filming shootouts, this one may hit the spot. Idris and Mackie make a good action movie pair convincingly inhabiting this battleground.

implausibility... is the order of the day. [Full review in Spanish]
January 19, 2021
It's all familiar, and not in a fun way. Equal parts middling Terminator sequel and off-brand Training Day, the film fails to take flight at every turn; seemingly every moment meant to soar lands with a thud.
January 19, 2021
There must be better ways to spend a couple of hours during this slow-motion apocalypse we're all living through.
January 18, 2021
Great sci-fi action and atmosphere elevate a generic, humdrum story. [Full review in Spanish]
January 18, 2021
Despite strong lead performances and some intriguing themes, this rarely rises above being a serviceable action thriller.
January 18, 2021
The film has a great premise and some cool moments of action, but the overall delivery falls short of expectation.
January 17, 2021
Terminator meets Rambo. There is a particular morality to drones & robots waging war, & the theme follows thru. Not perfect, but a military thriller with some extra texture.
January 17, 2021
When it's not getting in the weeds with its own plot, it's an exciting addition to the cinematic sci-fi canon, and does a laudable job leaving the audience with some big questions to ponder.
January 16, 2021
"Outside the Wire" doesn't adhere to its own reality, so it's a frustrating misfire.
