Cynthia Rothrock has done several movies since this 2002 entry, but I would argue that this is her most recent starring vehicle to date (I don't acknowledge Badass Showdown). It's a small, relatively cheap action-adventure that nonetheless packs a lot of entertainment into its 87 minutes. It's not the typical Rothrock flick and holds a few disappointments, but it just manages to beat out a lower rating through the strength of its writing and the presence of its star.

The story: A government agent on the run (Rothrock) becomes involved in the murder of her host by a drug-dealing playboy (Jeff Wincott).

Among the first things that I noticed was the tremendous improvement in the lead's level of acting. Cynthia Rothrock may never be confused with an Oscar nominee, but her dramatic effort here makes that of her other movies amateurish by comparison. It helps that the character she plays is a lot more intense than her usual roles, as well as that the film is written with little to no camp content. The pace of the plot isn't fast but it never drags, allowing for a decent amount of character development for the costars, among the thematically strongest of which is Brad Greenquist (Pet Sematary) as a tough CIA agent.

Jeff Wincott's villain is probably the least-explored character in the film, but Jeff nevertheless puts on a good show by channeling his more famous brother via his portrayal as an irredeemable antagonist. However, what might break the deal for many viewers is that he never fights.

A thrill-a-minute, non-stop action adventure with a kick, Outside the Law delivers exactly what it propounds to -- a great action movie with solid acting. Director Jorge Montesi is on top with this one, leading a first-rate cast. Cynthia Rothrock delivers some intense martial action, while Seamus Dever and Jeff Wincott add heavy weight to an outstanding performance. Particularly interesting is the chemistry between Rothrock and Dever. A must see.

This movie has it all.
Bad acting, silly and implausible plot. I mean, Come on!. The good guys go after the drug-lord types and steal "the secret laptop". The drug lords learn who's attacking them. The good guys hang out the entire time in a restaurant they own and the bad guys never bother to go after them.
The female lead apparently got her two expressions (pissed and majorly pissed) from Clint Eastwood. Dan Lauria (the bad cop) was amusing in a sad sort of way and Stephen Macht (who should have quit acting when he finished "Galaxina") played an evil government type who was after the female lead for some reason or another.
At least it was better than "In the Bedroom"

It is a very good picture about the martial arts played for a woman that tried to save her life.
