User Reviews

A formulaic action thriller
26 December 2017 | by TheBigSickSee all my reviews

The film "The Outlaws" strictly follows the action thriller formula, and the plot is easily predictable. What makes the film distinctive is its extremely brutal and bloody action style. Of all the R-rated movies I've ever seen, this is surely one of the most ferocious. The story is over dramatized in the screenplay. Homicide police definitely carry guns with them in reality while in the movie, police never use guns.
