Outlander (2008)

When it's over, even though I've seen this film countless times, I still find it enjoyable.  It's science fiction.  It's man against beast.  It's got an element of time travel - in this case, it's the Vikings.  It's an entertaining film to watch with friends and not take too seriously.  Jim Caviezel plays Kainan, a soldier from another planet who crash lands in Norway during the Iron Age (approx. 700 AD) and unknowingly brings along an alien predator known as the Moorwen who is set on destroying anything in its path.  Unlike some Sci-fi films where the stories and characters get snuffed in the action, Outlander stays at a good pace keeping the action going and slowing down when necessary to develop the plot and characters. 

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
