    The Day The Earth Stood Still meets 13th Warrior meets Alien!

    I definitely feel this movie, that came to me so un-announced and provided such a nicely un-expected evening of escape, requires a decent review. But I am not going to try and justify my opinion by waxing away point-by-point trying to exhibit my "incredible" knowledge of the material which I am not an expert off, nor do I want to spoil the plot in this process. Instead I am just going to say that I am an average 49-year old guy, of norwegion decent, who also likes his sci-fi and is always in need of a worthy "Viking" flick that Hollywood hasn't dumped all over in their infinite wisdom & greed with another artistic historical mis-representation. Good example of this type of travesty = "Pathfinder". In other words if you see a helmet on a "Viking" head with horns run, because that is the biggest hollywood misnomer used. So having said all that, I felt this movie had a very interesting idea of blending aliens and monsters with 8th century Northmen, it has several recognizeable actors, a solid script, good depth of character, an interesting adversary well designed and CGI'd, and if you find at the end that you liked it too, defintely watch the deleted scenes, many of which substantially add to the overall plot, and I suspect were only left out because the genius studio money people castrated the director to edit it down time-wise. I applaud the creators of this for presenting an enjoyable change of pace combining some hard to blend genre's!

    Fresh, Original Sci-Fi is Always Appreciated

    These days, original science fiction stories are rare. For me, I am a huge fan of a good sci-fi/fantasy story, and upon glancing at the cover of Outlander, I decided to watch a trailer. I had never heard of the film before, but after watching the trailer I decided to purchase it.

    For the most part, the plot is intelligent, and original. I really like the fact that it is set in medieval Norway, instead of modern day Los Angeles. Also, I have seen some movies set in the middle ages that are entirely unconvincing when it come to the time period it is supposedly set in. The setting in this film is very convincing.

    My biggest complaint is that Jim Caviezel's performance seems very distant and somewhat unconvincing. I assume it may be this way on purpose, since his character is from another world and that may be how they all act on his planet(s). Other performances, especially one point in Ron Perlman's performance, are rather good.

    At first I wasn't sure if I liked the creature, but after a while I decided that I really did. Most monster movies, or sci-fi horror movies have creatures that are stupid, yet somehow manage to kill everyone anyway. In this film, the monster is smart, and even seems to have personality. I won't give away my other thoughts on it, because it would be a plot spoiler.

    The movie seems to have been released without much hype at all, and for a fan of good science fiction, that is rather disappointing. This movie deserves more appreciation than it currently has.
