Quick Review: Outlander (2009)

"During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry."

Vikings vs. an Alien lizard-thing. Is there anything about that sentence that doesn't appeal to you? This movie is basically Predator, but with vikings and a "Space Dragon." Sounds odd, but I'm telling you that this movie is well-made, well-acted, suspenseful, and one a hell of a good Sci-Fi/Horror time.

This movie was a lot of action-filled fun. Jim Caviezel is awesome in this one as the enigmatic Kainan, Sophia Myles is both a hot and bad-ass viking chick, Jack Huston (new to me) was damn good as Wulfric, and John Hurt and Ron Perlman always rock.

I especially liked Perlman as the Viking King; he was more bad-ass than he normally is, and the guy is Hellboy for god's sake!

Vikings are scared of nothing!
If you like Sci-Fi flicks, medieval action flicks, or the "I'm the only one that can save you" Road Warrior-esque types of action flicks, than this is the flick for you. If you don't, then I'm not sure that I want to know you.


Outlander is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD.


Sophia Myles is smoking hot.
