Outlander (2008)


Outlander (2008)

TAGLINE : It destroyed his world. He won’t let it destroy ours.

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.

A debut science fiction thriller from Howard McCain, succumbs to a poor GCI monster and goofy plot. I appreaicate that a lot was done to explain the newcomer and his role and how he can seelesly meld into the viking age but apart from the costumes evrrything is very much a happy holywood story with very little grasp on reality. There is a concept underneath the Tolkienesque bravado but it comes across as an on the spot made up campfire tale. Ultimately it’s stereotypical gibberish. A strong chiefs daughter called freya, the alpha male who is abandoned by a newcomer, an angry clan chief. give us something differnent especailly with such a great cast and we will honestly lap this up. Potential for a sequel but it would have to go a long way to make up for this gibberish.
