Quotes

Jacob: [Opening Lines: Praying with his forehead on his sword's hilt] Almighty God, in my hour of need, be with me. Let me never forget my sacred and holy vows unto Thee. That I should not be prey unto demons and devils, and all the dark things of this world. Honor me with the arm of Thy Righteousness. Give me the Sword of Truth that I shall confound Thine enemies, and be unto Thee: a True Knight.

Outcast: Unfortunately, despite some very good elements, the result is poor.
28 December 2014 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

This isn't a great film and I think that the low IMDb rating (4,6) is correct. I'm afraid that the explanation lies in the clichéd dialogues and in the naive action scenes (who could find convincing a man who regularly defeats dozens of enemies as if they just didn't exist?) which seemed outdated for the present times.

But this bad outcome is, under many respects, a pity, because the film has a very good cast, great stunting, beautiful scenery, excellent images, a modern editing and its storyline, although not even remotely original, is a honest classical plot for an adventure movie.

Nick Powell is a top stunt coordinator (and that's why the stunting is so good), here at his first experience as a director. I don't know how great his ambitions are but he didn't seem far from making a film that could be much more appreciated by people like me.
