In the year's most action-packed sci-fi adventure, Jim 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. Featuring Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Sophia Myles (Underworld), and John Hurt (Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull), Outlander is a visual spectacular, combining stunning special effects, fast-paced action, and a fantastic story to explosive effect.

 Avoid buying the Blu ray

| | See all chazbgood's reviews (2)

I am not one that is normally compelled to write reviews about films. I feel that my view of a movie is hugely personal and may be worlds away from yours.

On this rare occasion, I am moved to write a review of the Blu ray version of this film, not the film itself. Obviously I can't comment on, or compare to, the DVD version as I bought this for the high def 'experience'.

For reference. I am watching through; a PS3 with an optical cable connected to my Onkyo AV receiver for sound and a high quality HDMI cable connected to my Pioneer PDP-LX 5090 screen.

I still buy huge amounts of DVDs, but for effects laden and epic films I, like many others I'm sure, prefer the brilliance of Blu ray. This film's transfer is poor.

I sat for the best part of two hours grinding my teeth in frustration and misery at the fact that I'd spent extra money on something that is really no better than standard definition, or DVD at best. I even began checking my panel's settings in case the kids had 'accidentally' adjusted anything! My enjoyment of the film was completely ruined as I couldn't focus on anything else. My girlfriend used to complain that I was too picky if the convergence was even slighty out on our old. rear projected set. She couldn't see it, and couldn't understand why I'd get so annoyed with it. Now she says I'm doing it all over again with this!!!

To put this into context, immediately afterwards I watched Last House on the Left, again on Blu ray, and I could breathe easily again. The difference was phenominal. The blacks were deep and inky, unlike the 'greys' of Outlander, the colours were bright and vibrant, and the details was mind blowing. Just as I would expect a Blu ray disc to be.

You can make up your own minds as to the quality of the film itself. The acting, plot, script and cinematography are for others to judge. But be warned, if you're planning on buying this film on Blu ray, don't expect to be blown away by the quality of the transfer. My recommendation would be to purchase the DVD and use the money you save on a pint. You'll enjoy it more and maybe not mind the poor picture quality so much.

 Don't understand every1's problem!!!!!!!!!!!

I had to write this because i don't understand what peoples problem with this movie is. Maybe they read 1 persons review who gives it bad, expect it to be rubbish and so just think that, following eachother like sheep!! I thought this movie was actually quite good, Excellent sound (DTS HD ma) and picture (1080P) quality, its not a classic but the action scenes are good and the idea is of mixing the future with the past works, it is well acted and entertained for its 110 min runtime. Maybe rent before you buy because prob not every1s cup of tea but don't let the bad reviews put you off if this movie intrigues you!

 Vikings Rule O.K?

At last a Viking movie that rocks big time. Vikings meets Alien in a film that takes big beards, swords and liberal quantities of action and blood. Rips up the competition, digests it, then proceeds to give us the biggest, baddest rumble of the year. It`s an original twist on the Beowulf saga which never lets it`s grip relax, as our hairy heroes slowly realise the gruesome truth about the unstoppable monster that`s crash landed into their world. Outlander is a simply amazing breath of fresh air, excitement and fun, which catapults along at tremendous speed. It boasts a superb cast, direction, special effects and picture. A genuine quality action movie.

Fantastic and original sci-fi movie with some lavish special effects and cool monsters, lots of action, good fun movie with a great cast of characters, it certainly has a more original and imaginative plot than most sci-fi films.

 Excellent film and transfer.

Ignore any misinformed comments over picture quality. This is an excellent transfer on a well set up TV, especially with a 10bit panel as this is pretty dark in places.

Interesting story with aliens, swords, Ron Perlman being Ron Perlman, axes, more swords, and Sophia Myles being gorgeous.
Excellent effects, action and drama. Boffo, a good one.
