At first glance this movie appears to be a strange mixture of "hard" sci-fi and mythological history flick, given the ancient nordic "Beowulf" saga an unexpected twist, with the hero actually being a marooned space-farer who unwittingly brought a monstrous extra-terrestial creature with him to early medieval earth. Monstrous Grendel and the dragon of beowulfic origins as alien lifeforms ? We have seen stranger explanations and plot-devices, haven't we ? And don't worry, not much wielding of laser's or futuristic tech to spoil the tone of the viking setting, mud and harsh conditions included.

What follows is well-filmed with a good sense for editing and sound mixture, lovingly outfitted , mostly superior acting by the cast including John Hurt and Ron Perlman in lesser, but memorable roles, more than just one-dimensional villains and as a nice bonus a fittingly epic soundtrack. Not to forget some dry wit by the local vikings, even if it does not dominate the movie, and an understated romance with the not-so-meek female lead, feisty Sophia Myles.

Yes, some factual liberties are being taken - such as oddly capable blacksmith shops and volcanic caves in Norway amongst the more noticable ones, not to mention the Sci-Fi elements - though mostly to facilliate the flow of the story, BUT..... show me one recent movie or even documentary that doesn't...
Even if the CGI is not quite cutting edge "Outlander" ends up being a far superior historical adventure flick than its obvious direct competitors "the 13th Warrior", the overly violent "Pathfinder" and the cheesy "Beowulf" of 2007 (or the even worse 90ies one...*shudder*)... or basically any historical/fantasy movie with a heroic theme made in the last decade except the hard-to-eclipse "LotR"-saga. IMHO, of course...

Outlander is a relatively tame science fiction horror movie. Seems to be a very poor film at first, but stick with it and you may find it mildly entertaining.

The Cons.

It is quite puzzling why the directors chose a Norse setting, then failed to including anything remotely Norse appart from the occassion mentioning of Odin. The accents used are affected Gaelic if anything, apart from John Hurt, who as always sounds like John Hurt.

One thing that did please me was that there were no horned helmets. I would have given an extra star for that, but for the American obsession of including warhorses where they don't belong.

The soundtrack is very bland an monotonous. This reduces the dramtic tension, which is is either a bad thing or a good thing, depending on how nervous you are.

The romantic element feels forced and highly predictable throughout. I did feel that there was any genuine emotional connection between the romantic leads.

Even more predictable and disppointing is the inclusion of the token Priest, who's only function you know will be to try and exorcise the Demonic beast with his words. Sorry for the tiny spoiler, but it was pre-spoiled IMHO. Comic relief for sadistic athiests perhaps?

Pros.

What the film lacks in authentic scenery is made up for somewhat by decent special effects. Strangely I found it easier to believe in the monster, than believe in the human characters.

I quite liked that in spite of a high death toll, the directors chose not to go for maximum gore. This is in keeping for the target audience.

There is no bad language or nudity, which again tells you that this is a film for a more sensitive young audience.

This movie is something of a hybrid of Predator and Beowulf, with a dash of The Man Who Fell to Earth. Jim Caviezel plays a brave and stoic humanoid alien, who crash lands his spaceship on earth, landing in the wilds of Norway, in the time of the Viking hordes. Unbeknownst to him, his ship is carrying a lethal alien, which looks like one of the Predator's attack dogs, called the Moorwen. The spaceman is caught by a clan of Vikings and imprisoned in their fort, the fort is an impressive piece of set design. The fort comes under attack by an elusive assailant, which kills several of the clan, and the Vikings disbelieve the spaceman's contention that it was the alien which caused the destruction. John Hurt plays the King of the Vikings in a perfectly judged cameo. His daughter is played by Sophie Myles, who portrays the princess as a feisty, thoughtful and passionate tomboy. Ultimately, the spaceman convinces the clan that they are being attacked by a strange other worldly life form, and the Vikings then seek to trap and kill the alien. I was pleasantly surprised by the movie. In the first half, you hardly get to see the alien, and when it is on screen, the action takes place in the dark, so there is very little to see. This made me fear that the whole budget was blown on the lavish Nordic costumes and period weaponry, and the impressively built fort, rather than CGI. However, in the second half, the alien is on screen a lot, and the CGI is good, if not right up there at Avatar levels. Jim Caviezel plays the lead character as the strong silent type, and he is fine in the role, though you can imagine somebody more like a young Sean Connery would have been magnificent in the role. The film score is superb, suitably epic, and the costumes are brilliant, the animal furs very convincing.Read more ›
