I got this movie from my local DVD street guy & honestly only got it cause Jim Caviezel was in it. Little did I know how much of a treat I was in for. This was far better than I could have imagined it would be & I only got it too help pass the time on a quite Saturday @work. We have Swords, Vikings & one hell bent vicious beast. I did like the little twist on why the creature was so determined to kill everyone. I was plesantly surprised at how good this flick was. I would recommend you check it out if your into the whole sword/monster/vikings thing.

Unfortunately Outlander has neither. Caviezel's so-called character is sketched purely in the form of clumsy flashbacks to the ubiquitous murdered family, and in the land of the Vikings he finds a fiery princess to impress, an orphaned boy to adopt and a local warrior to butt heads and bond with while they hunt down the …
