Outlander (2008)

Norway, 709: Astronaut Kainan crashes onto Earth but amid the wreckage of his ship is a monster that sees the nearby Viking villages are breakfast, lunch and dinner.


Definition of a good man: confess to planet-wide genocide and bring an unstoppable monster to a village but feel a bit bad about it. This man will also make an ideal husband and king. Typically idiotic Hollywood writing aside, this is a better-than-expected period sci-fi monster movie with decent effects and action. It’s also one of the few movies featuring Vikings that isn’t unwatchable.

This movie contains sexual swear words and strong violence, some graphic violence, unpleasant and gory scenes.

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.
