A handful of men find themselves forced to deal with acts of brutal violence in an increasingly lawless Britain in this hard-hitting crime thriller from writer and director Nick Love. Sgt. Danny Bryant (Sean Bean) comes home injured from a tour of duty in Iraq to find that things aren't what they once were -- a gang of thugs has moved into the neighborhood, and his wife is sleeping with another man. Angry Gene Dekker (Danny Dyer) is roughed up by toughs on the day he's to be married, and rather than head out to the church, he sets out to get revenge on the men who beat him. Terence… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Give me a bit of the old ultraviolence any day. Just make me care about it."
‑ David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle
"What were the capable cast thinking?"
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"Racho-macho vigilante action with a cockney accent, Outlaw is made to seem more important than it really is by the presence of Sean Bean and Bob Hoskins in key roles"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Crime-revenge-porn without any style or wit or convincing narrative."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"It's not the explicit violence and primal anger that is worrying, it's the fact that Love may be tapping into something simmering in the nation's psyche."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Both the pic's power and its problems stem from Love deliberately taking no moral position nor offering any solutions; he gives his audience what it wants at a gut level and doesn't wimp out at the end."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"An angry, rough, and flat-out boring revenge flick."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
"Strong language and bone-crunching tear-ups won't appeal to the faint-hearted - but for fans of in-your-face action, this is the business."
‑ Johnny Vaughan, Sun Online
"The characters never convince and it spirals into plain silliness."
‑ Mark Adams, Sunday Mirror [UK]
"Death Wish meets the Daily Mail"
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
"The actors are all too good for this kind of stuff, but they do the business, while Sam McCurdy's sharp cinematography and Stuart Gazzard's slick editing keep it all moving swiftly."
‑ , Hollywood Reporter
"Outlaw commits an unforgivable offense. It makes the vigilante genre boring."
‑ Christian Toto, Washington Times
"Leaves you wondering what it wants to say and whom it's supposed to be aimed at."
‑ Neil Smith, thelondonpaper
"An ill-thought out film where raw, electric violence sits uneasily with moral posturing. It's time to call the cops..."
‑ Jonathan Dean, Total Film
"The kind of film the tabloids will call to ban. Don't take that as a reason to see it."
‑ Olly Richards, Empire Magazine
