Editorial Reviews

A group of ordinary men form a modern day posse to right what they believe are the wrongs of society. Returning from a tour of duty in Iraq, former paratrooper Bryant (Sean Bean) is appalled by the crime that runs rampant and unchecked. Determined to do something about it, he assembles a group of like-minded men who resolve to restore the balance between good and evil by enforcing justice with a brutality equal to that of their enemies.

Customer Reviews

Nobody else seems to be bothered by this.

I cannot fathom why this movie was filmed with such a random mix of (deliberately jittery) handheld shots and conventional tripod shots.

I am a huge Sean Bean fan even though these days he seems to inevitably die on-screen (shades of Game of Thrones).

Hmm... It's a good cast, a good premise and it taps into the fear aspect very effectively. As the film moves along, the various trials and brutalities bring the characters together. In some respects you could say the film actually hones in on a real 'vibe' in society (in the UK, at least). But then, just when you think "this is pretty good", it chickens out, like someone aggreeing with your problems then, when push comes to shove, they just stay quiet and won't back you up. It's good up 'til the last fifteen minutes, then tries to tone itself down, like it won't take the responsibility for being 'right'. It tells you that standing up for yourself ultimately leads to self destruction. Shame, because it could have been like a modern "DEATHWISH", but fresh and more credible. And for such a bold stab at some really relevant issues, it takes the easy way out with its choice of positive stereotypes, with regards to "second thoughts" of their actions. Could have been a cracker.

This film could have been something big, something really impressive. It missed it's mark though due to the writer(s) bad taste in climax and in structure. The plot itself is deceptively simple, a group of men feel justice isn't being met by the law and decide to take matters into their own hands, the movie delves much deeper though and the style of filming was very well done considering the concept of the film.

The film portrays England's underbelly very well and the gritty realism in the scenes puts out an unmistakable talented and accurate feeling of crime and the corrupt system. The acting was good, surprisingly good, though I had of course expected something good of Sean Bean. Bean's character wasn't written well enough to give the actor the full potential of the character but he still managed to pull of a great performance, very convincing. His supporting cast is what surprised me more, their acting was great, very detailed and very realistic. You didn't get the feeling you were watching a movie at all.

Overall this movie could have been something really great but lacked the big guns to pull it off completely. However, it is still definately a film worth watching if your willing to invest an hour and a half into really thinking through a movie and getting a feel for the corruptness and perversion in the system.

Soldier returns to the UK and with the help of a small group - decide to take justice into their own hands. A great cast including Sean Bean and Bob Hoskins are unable to do justice to a terrible script.
Although this does show a little of the underbelly of the UK it is bleak and unpleasant and Bean's character has no redeeming features at all which makes it hard to sympathise with his views.
SPOILERS...As an example of how this fails to work - within a couple of days one character (a barrister) goes from balking at executing a murderer to getting involved in a machine gun shoot out with the police! There are few characters you associate with and this tagged onto a tedious script makes for some very poor viewing.
Best avoided, even if you (like me) enjoy action films

I remember reading someone saying that the plot was muddled. It was. The ending was one of the worse I've seen in movies. I expected Sean Bean and his compatriots to get even, but all they did was get their as**** kicked by the Gov't. I mean, just when you think his little army of misfits are going to complete what they set out to do; they bollix (or bollox) it up.
Even Bob Hoskins part in helping out the "vigilantes" was predictable and so bad you knew when "his time was up." Bad script and bad direction.

Now don't get me wrong, I really like "The Boondock Saints." But let's be honest, it's about as realistic as "Batman." In the real world, meting out vigilante justice would not offer a cloak of (near) invincibility; nor would it be morally uncomplicated. Murder is murder ... an indifferent killer is, well, a psychopath --- not a saint (Boondock or otherwise). OUTLAW tries to offer a bit more reality, and succeeds, to a point.

There's a strong (and I think healthy) interest in movies about vigilante justice -- whether it's the "Boondock" brothers, "Taxi Driver," "The Brave One," "Death Wish," your basic samurai movie, etc., etc. The list is endless. OUTLAW is a movie in this vein, and unlike many, it attempts (with limited success) to portray some real-world vigilantes, with all the ambivalence, fear, moral complexity and mortal risk that such a decision would entail. Like some of the other reviewers, I thought this goal lost a lot of focus in the last 20 minutes or so, when the movie degrades into "Death Wish II" or something.

But that's not why only 2 stars: I gave OUTLAW just 2 stars because ... it's almost unwatchable. Literally. I cannot fathom why this movie was filmed with such a random mix of (deliberately jittery) handheld shots and conventional tripod shots. There are very few movies, generally much more intimate films, that benefit from such self-conscious "style." I mean really -- if you're using two or three cameras to film a simple conversation, why would you cut, over and over again, between tripod-mounted and hand-held cameras? So in the middle of a sentence an actor goes from a steady frame to a wobbly close-up, then back? Over and over?
