Producer of ‘Lord of the Rings’ & Director Howard McCain bring an epic heroic adventure to the screen. It’s visually stunning CGI entertainment for the big screen. The movie is not as powerful or engaging as Tolkien’s LoR trilogy but it’s not dull either. It entertained me with its engaging adventure saga.
Kainan (Jim Caviezal) is a man from the far-off world, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Kainan was stucked with Vikings who lives in the Iron Age & known him as Outlander. He won their hearts with his brave attempt to fight Viking’s sole enemy Gunner & leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen. But they are fighting no ordinary demon & failed in their plan till we meet exciting climax.
Caviezal is impressive in his Greek epic warrior kind of heroic stature. Rest of the casting is Ok. Cinematography, Production design & Visual effects are just stunning to get rolling the entertainment for the audience. Thrill & drama are well maintained with the good pace of the film.
Well I do not expect much from the film as I’ve seen the promos on TV but it’s surprisingly entertaining one if you keep your logical mind aside for a while.

Ratings- 7/10
