Monsters vs Aliens, the three-word pitch of
Outlander is "Vikings vs Aliens", as Jim Caviezel's spaceman crashlands in eighth-century Norway with a fire-breathing beastie in the hold.
The creature escapes, and Caviezel is captured by some fey vikings (including John Hurt and Sophia Myles) with random accents and gleaming white teeth. It should be a delirious B-movie, but it plods along with dreary seriousness. Rent 2007's similar but superior Beowulf instead.
