(THE FILM) In the year's most action-packed sci-fi adventure, James Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ) stars as a futuristic soldier who crash lands on Earth with a hellish, fire-breathing monster in a time of warring Viking tribes. Fusing advanced technology with Iron Age weaponry, he must unite the fierce Vikings and hunt the bloodthirsty beast before it kills them all. Directed by Howard McCain and featuring Ron Perlman (Hellboy films), Sophia Myles (Underworld films), and John Hurt (Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull), Outlander is "visually spectacular" (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Daily Herald), combining stunning special effects, fast-paced action, and a fantastic story to explosive effect. WHAT CAN I SAY? Unnoticed and completely underrated this is a great movie with a very original storyline. James Caviezel is great (Outlander) Is a great mixture of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Drama that has quite a lot of depth. It tries to make you question who's good and who's bad, gets you thinking about themes like abandonment and misguided violence.
But then, it suddenly decides to forget all that and just be a top monster movie. Speaking of which, the monster is one of the coolest I've seen. The way it lures prey with spooky red light is fantastic. You get a really good sense of scariness and power in this beast Entertaining movie filled with plenty of slice and dice Special effects are excellent as were the locations, and the supporting cast were enthusiastic and nicely hammed up for action so for a good night in with sci-fi movie with some lavish special effects and cool monsters, lots of action,you will happily watch again. so get the beers in and I will get the pizza.
