Sypnosis : During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan (Caviezel), 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.
Well I was going to watch ‘The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button’ but chose ‘Outlander’ instead because I wanted an out of this world distraction. Boy did I get my money’s worth! Can you imagine watching Alien/Predator, 13th Warrior, Beowulf, Pathfinder all rolled into one and is not even a comedy but rather a sci-fi meets action drama movie? Well this movie isn’t for everyone, especially those who crave either pure action, pure drama or simply one of the generic genres.
I on the otherhand rather enjoyed this rather odd ‘blended’ movie, after all every once in a while it is good to watch something totally new and which stretches once imagination. So in short my advice is leave your mindset at the door and you’ll certainly be entertained.
