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...

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 ›

I really like this.

It is daft to the point of being preposterous, and I'm afraid Wulfric's accent is annoying. This aside, all the cast are either good or simply entertaining. Jim Caviezel is someone I always enjoy watching, and in this, while his natural dourness sometimes goes a little far, he does a good job. John Hurt is always good for me, and Ron Perlman, well, another favourite. The scenery is lovely, too.

The story, well, it's Beowulf with an alien Grendel. As such, it is by a country mile the best version of that wonderful tale I've seen filmed. The monster is good value, even if illogical. It could have stood a longer running time for me, with some of the deleted/ extended scenes that are in the Extras.

Oh yes, it's a it cheesy, but nonetheless great fun and good entertainment. Definitely four stars, equally definitely not five for me.

709 Anno Domini. Norway. A traveller from another planet Kainan(James Caviezel) crashes his spaceship in a lake. Not only does he have to contend with two warring Viking tribes, but he has brought an unwelcome guest along for the ride, the Morwen, a deadly repitilian lifeform. Soon everyone is united together against a common foe, but at what cost?
This is superb once it gets going. It does take a little while to spark, but once it does it is an intelligent, exciting, even epic mix of science fiction, fantasy and historical fact. It has some lovely little touches such as the well rounded depiction of Viking life, the realisation that Kainan has a rather large skeleton in his closet, and that the Morwen has every reason to feel aggreived. Add to this some excellent performances from Caviezel, John Hurt as a wise Viking ruler Rothgar, Jack Huston as his headstrong heir apparent Wulfric, Sophia Myles as Rothgar's brave warrior daughter and Ron Perlman, is just Ron Perlman as Gunnar.
I think the aspect I liked the most was how the character of Kainan, through being accepted by Rothgar's tribe, gained redemption in the process, and was able to exorcise his mental ghosts.
An excellent adventure, full of imagination and clever little touches. 5 out of 5
