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.

"Outside the Wire" passes the time, and there are worse crimes than being watchable and disposable.
January 20, 2021
Extremely violent sci-fi tale tackles war consequences.

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]

Great sci-fi action and atmosphere elevate a generic, humdrum story. [Full review in Spanish]
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
A perfect example of a January movie, just good enough to pass the time, yet perhaps not worth remembering.

"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 15, 2021
The film's success may depend entirely on your expectations of what you want to get out of it.
January 15, 2021
While in the end, the movie is fairly forgettable, it's fun and entertaining enough to spend two hours watching.
January 15, 2021
...a serviceable science fiction/action movie, with its two leads and the special effects lifting it above the fact that it's a story we've seen too many times.
January 14, 2021
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.
January 14, 2021
A packed Friday night theater would have bust out in applause.
January 14, 2021
The production delivers a diverting endeavor with pleasingly smashmouth encounters and a driving plot.
January 13, 2021
With Anthony Mackie and Damson Idris at the ever-engaging helm, Outside the Wire gives us an intellectually subtle debate on AI technology as a war machine alongside human soldiers.
January 13, 2021
Mackie and Idris play well off each other. The characters are well defined, which makes you feel good about taking this frenetic journey with them.
January 13, 2021
A fun ride for two hours-with a nice mystery to it.
