- Outlander review by AM
Young teens may enjoy this simple yarn of an alien ship crash landing on earth in Viking times, with some literally monstrous baggage on board that proceeds to run riot in the village and that's about it really!
Think Relic / Predator against a Viking backdrop...its a great premise that unfortunately did not work for this reviewer. Effects are not great and the acting is very ordinary. Nice Blue-Ray print though.
Formulaic but watchable....just.

Bland Straight to DVD Action Flick
- Outlander review by CP Customer
For fans of straight to DVD action flicks with plenty of stunts and combat, Outlander will be passable. The rest of us will consider how this was given the green light, especially when The 13th Warrior does it so much better, even with its flaws. This clash of science fiction and ancient legend fails to gel, despite some decent effects and solid performances from several, most notably John Hurt.

Corny and clichéd but excellently done
- Outlander review by JD
This has Scandinavian drinking scenes, fighting an impossibly invincible monster, a blossoming romance a superhero and lots of hand to hand fighting. What could be more clichéd ? Against all odds it is very gripping with fight scenes which you actually see (usually done in the dark with a shaky hand held camera). It also has the unusual angle of time travelling into the dark ages from the future.
