Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Outlander.
Philadelphia Daily News - 9/10 by Gary ThompsonKudos are in order for the entire cast, which recites the corny dialogue, and never once turns a glowing red.
AMCtv.com - 9/10 by Eugene NovikovFor a movie about aliens and Vikings, Outlander turns out to be awfully rough going.
Montreal Film Journal - 9/10 by Kevin N. LaforestThis is honestly better than all the big Hollywood blockbusters that have been released so far this summer.
Daily Express (UK) - 8/10 by Allan HunterBeowulf meets Aliens in a rip-roaring mixture of B-movie clichés, wooden acting, dumb dialogue and bloodthirsty action scenes. Indulgent fantasy fans of all ages should find it a guilty pleasure.
One Guy's Opinion - 8/10 by Frank SwietekSurely they mean Outlandish...ready-made for a late-night slot on the Sci-Fi channel.
eFilmCritic.com - 8/10 by Peter SobczynskiIts blend of crappy special effects, cheesy acting and straight-faced silliness is enough to provide viewers with a taste for camp trash with a couple of hours of cheerfully ridiculous mind-rot.
SFX Magazine - 7/10 by Richard EdwardsAbout as subtle as being punched in the face by an angry Norwegian, it delivers everything you could possibly want from a movie about Vikings and alien monsters.
The A.V. Club - 7/10 by Tasha RobinsonAn odd mishmash of genres with too much message and musing to be propulsive, and too much cornball monster movie to take seriously. But while the blend may not satisfy fans of pure action or pure drama, at least it gives them both a new flavor to try.
The Hollywood Reporter - 7/10 by Ray BennettIt's entertaining nonsense with major league special effects, larger-than-life characters and inventive monsters that draw on the "Aliens" and "Predator" models, being terrifying but also vaguely sympathetic.
Little White Lies - 7/10 by Ed AndrewsAs the ginger offspring of a Ridley Scott/Peter Jackson gangbang, Outlander is a wannabe B movie classic that's so shit, it's just... shit!
