    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    In its second half, Outlander falls apart completely, becoming nothing but a violent, mindless monster movie along the lines of "Alien vs. Predator." show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    An enjoyably goofy hybrid of extraterrestrial sci-fi and Iron Age action, Outlander boasts a super-serious Jim Caviezel in the title role show more

    Ray Bennett The Hollywood Reporter

    It'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. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Outlander is interesting as a collision of genres: the monster movie meets the Viking saga. You have to give it credit for carrying that premise to its ultimate (if not logical) conclusion. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    The nuttiest hunk of junk in many months. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    By taking nonsense seriously Outlander never achieves camp. It's a comic book that's mistaken itself for scripture. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    There isn't a single scene in this story about a traveler from another planet (Jim Caviezel) who crash-lands on Earth during the Iron Age that doesn't remind you of another, better movie. show more

    If only Outlander was as fun as the premise makes it sound on paper. show more

    Derek Elley Variety

    Not helped by a wooden perf from Jim Caviezel as a humanoid alien who accidentally imports a real alien to eighth-century Earth. show more

    Chicago Reader

    Writer-director Howard McCain bids fair to dethrone Uwe Boll as the king of crap action flicks, and every second feels like time on the cross. show more

    It looks awesome. Why does it have to be rated R? I'm only 14 and my parents won't let me see it.

    This movie was awesome. I personally thought that Vikings vs Aliens was a cheesy concept, but it's not. The script is well written, it's got a great cast (John Hurt AND Ron Perlman? Sweet...), and the special effects are up to the task. I drove 300 miles round-trip to catch this movie, and I highly recommend it.

    This movie was horrible. The story sounded interesting enough, however it seemed whomever wrote the script had no idea what he or she was doing. The whole move just lacked any cohesion. It was almost laughable. It's not eve rent worthy...wait till it comes out on the sci-fi channel. Had to walk out on this one
