Science fiction, fantasy, and Viking adventure clash in this film starring James Caviezel and Sophia Myles. In eighth-century Norway, the Vikings are at war, but a strange craft from space arrives with Kainan (James Caviezel) on board. But he is not alone: along for the ride is his mortal enemy, a monster called the Moorwen. Soon, the Moorwen begins attacking the Vikings, and they unite with Kainan to take down their mutual foe. Fans of genre fare will be pleased to see Caviezel's co-stars, HELLBOY's Ron Perlman and John Hurt.
In the year's most action-packed sci-fi adventure, Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ) stars as a futuristic soldier who crash lands on Earth with a hellish, fire-breathing monster in a time of warring Viking tribes. Fusing advanced technology with Iron Age weaponry, he must unite the fierce Vikings and hunt the bloodthirsty beast before it kills them all. Featuring Ron Perlman (Hellboy films), Sophia Myles (Underworld films), and John Hurt (Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull), Outlander is ?visually spectacular? (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Daily Herald), combining stunning special effects, fast-paced action, and a fantastic story to explosive effect.
