Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Daft, obvious but hugely enjoyable, 'Outlander' is superior trash."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"In its second half, Outlander falls apart completely, becoming nothing but a violent, mindless monster movie along the lines of Alien vs. Predator."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Beowulf with aliens and lots of gore, violence."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"A mead hall party feels like a Iron Age version of "Cheers," right down to the "Norm!" greeting for one character. It's one of many leaden diversions from what should be a lean, economical, brutal B-movie of aliens, Vikings and alternate timelines."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"About as subtle as being punched in the face by an angry Norwegian, it delivers everything you could possibly want from a movie about Vikings and alien monsters."
‑ Richard Edwards, SFX Magazine
"An unexpectedly enjoyable science-fiction adventure that should be generating louder fanboy buzz than it has so far."
‑ Cary Darling, Dallas Morning News
"In Outlander, the nuttiest hunk of junk in many months, Viking warriors and a stoic intergalactic traveler join forces to combat an enormous beetle with whiplash stingers."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Outlander is a fluid genre exercise that satisfies cravings for action and Norse mythology in one fell swoop. It's a full-bodied adventure movie that's responsive and reverential to the needs of sci-fi escapism."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"This is honestly better than all the big Hollywood blockbusters that have been released so far this summer."
‑ Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal
"Outlander is a perfectly acceptable mashup of "Alien," "Predator" and just about every Viking flick you've ever seen."
‑ Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?
"Outlander is a cheesy, low-budget, space alien Viking monster movie. And seemingly proud of it."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"There isn't a single scene in this story about a traveler from another planet who crash-lands on Earth during the Iron Age that doesn't remind you of another, better movie."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Vikings vs. aliens -- Outlander is probably the best possible version of whatever movie you've already made in your head from reading those first three words."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"...ultimately establishes itself as a fun little endeavor that boasts as irresistible a premise as one could possibly imagine."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Most of the time, though, Howard McCain's movie is plain dull."
‑ Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK)
