Both actors don't really get much of respect from the movie-going cult, but it's intriguing how the over-the-top would bounce against the nonchalant.

The movie for me was a dull or poor one.

His love scenes with Liu YiFei are slightly tedious.


And although I always admired Nicolas Cage a lot, this became nevertheless a tedious and very bad movie.

this film was a huge disappointment and it was a huge waste of time.

What made it unwatchable for me: 1.

Outcast is destined to be garbage, but there is some intriguing moments, both ludicrous and seriousness, scattered around.

His opium induced drugged out squint is a bit tiresome after a while and his haircut a bit too modern.

But it's that one entertaining, annual Nic Cage vehicle we've become accustomed to.

Action scenes and location are really good and entertaining.

The action scenes are poorly made and I admit I fell asleep 5-6 times, my brother had to wake me up.

enjoyable adventure with sword swinging in abundance .

End of the day, worth a look, if your bored and need a bit of action and unintentional comedy.

This film "Outcast" is worth the watch.

Very entertaining.

So as a B-movie, it's all predictable.

The film is formulaic as you know exactly what the final fight will be.

What was going through your mind as you wrote this poor, boring, mind blowingly (and numbingly) DULL and dreadful script!

Sure it was adequately entertaining and had some good enough fight scenes.

It is the kind of entertainment I expected and it was enjoyable.

Most enjoyable with a wonderful Hollywood ending.

Also, the reply to the White Ghost's question of how did you find me is quite enjoyable.

A Very Entertaining Movie .

The scenery is breathtaking.

One of the worst movies I had to sit through .

Simple Entertaining Adventure Story .

This movie bored me to tears, for those that want to see a good movie, with a great story, lots of action; and good acting get Excalibur.

He actually fell asleep before the movie ended.

Waste of time about crusaders in China .

However, it is meaningless, the makers tried to attract us with this image but they failed to connect the stories, so it becomes boring.

There was no plot, and the acting was terrible.

Entertaining Overall .

He really is becoming consistent with bringing out completely unwatchable movies!

The story is plain, unimaginative, the fight scenes are bland, something you wouldn't expect from a stunt coordinator anyway, the reason being the camera is held far too close to the action to be able to actually see anything taking place especially in the sword fight scenes, once again another director who has no idea what he is doing.

(You can easily identify these reviews of personal hate, when you read comments like "The worst movie ever made" etc.)First of all the star in this is Hayden Christensen (not Cage), who does a good job overall.

Straightforward, Nothing New, but Entertaining .

just pure boring and utterly unrealistic action.

The whole sadly feels like it has been written over one night when someone had a seemingly excitening idea for a movie, but - in all their eager to deliver a blockbuster - ended up with just another cliché packed box of garbage.

though a little formulaic like most films, still entertaining .

The action sequences where very entertaining and well directed, the costumes where good and the setting felt authentic.

i enjoyed it since i had time to kill and it was watchable to say the least.

Review: What a complete waste of time and money!

The only redeeming qualities i can give this film are: a slightly engaging yet pointless opening and being able to laugh while Nicholas Cage delivers his lines in a very crazy and over the top manner.

Of course, the plot is hopelessly formulaic.

Nick Powell's "The Outcast" surpasses Dominic Sena's dreary "Season of the Witch.

If you want to waste your time, please continue to watch this move.

The plot is predictable, and a bit on the boring side.

A movie that was so slow and too long.

This film is not a Ridley Scott swords and sandals epic, but it's still a very watchable and entertaining action film.

Glad I watched it anyway as it was really fun and entertaining for me.

Its not Shakespeare but lets be real, Hamlet is boring as heck.

I am voting this 10, as I found it very entertaining, and can't believe how negative the reviewers are here.

It's very boring, though once they start speaking with their British accents, it's just ridiculous.

Boring dialog mixed with overly choreographed fight scenes make the movie a struggle to get through.

On the whole an enjoyable film to watch on a wet Derbyshire early autumn afternoon

The dialogue is awful, extremely poorly written and the story is disjointed.

he is a playing a drunk dumb soldier with no real plot to stand on for being the way he is.

I liked Outcast in the first hour or so - sure the acting is somewhat wooden, alternating beautiful scenes and a soundstage, with also some inconsistencies in the story, but great fight scenes and a very impressive performance by Hayden Christiansen as the jaded warrior made the film really tense and enjoyable...

Some parts were a little silly, but it was enjoyable.

This movie was hands down one of the most boring experiences i have had in a movie in the last few years.

Nevertheless, gorgeous scenery, thrilling combat scenes, and superb production values compensate just enough to make "The Outcast" a tolerably enjoying yarn.

not sure if I'm qualified to write a review since I did not finish the movie, couldn't finish it, was unwatchable at best, total crap ...

Starting with the story, the actors' play and the environment it was play on, the movie is entertaining because this is all about a movie, it suppose to entertain us.

His stupid soccer player haircut coupled with his absolutely absurd accent makes the movie unwatchable.

Reviewed by: Dare Devil Kid (DDK)Rating: 3/5 starsSay what you want about Nic Cage, but the man delivers at least one entertaining film a year – either in the action or thriller genre.

But it wasn't just Hayden whose performance was dreadful, everyone in this film was absolutely terrible, the dialogue was so cheesy and predictable and the delivery of those lines made the actors look like they were trying way too hard to be serious.

Fantastic, exciting and honourable .

This really is a bad film, with a predictable, almost imperceptible path.

Mainstream and boring.

The plot is common for Chinese movie, and probably would've been better if the movie turned full kungfu flick as this bland westernization version only makes everything worse.

The film is absolutely pointless in places especially the opening scenes where nothing is explained, something that frustrated me throughout.

The dialog is somewhat cliché, then you also have the white savior cliché in which Nick Cage and Hayden Christensen kick Chinese ass to save Chinese people from other Chinese people, but I'm cool with that.

Don't waste your time or money.

Movie was slow and just felt like they didn't even attempt to make it decent.

The fighting scenes was not cut to be exist, how I would really like if the scene when Nicolas Cage tried to fend of the black guards were made to be more epic, y'know, that scene, is very boring.

Wooden acting, predictable plot and poor cinematography.

Fantastic and exciting piece of film.

In fact, it's kind of enjoyable.

Hayden Christensen as the main antagonist is uninspiring.

It's so bad you'll fall asleep.

Dull movie .

He was so bland and put absolutely no emotion or effort into the performance, and being the lead character it just makes the film even more boring than it already was.

The audience also gets to see some shots from unexpected places like very close to the surface of the water or the inside of a bowl, which are nicely integrated with the rest of the footage providing an immersive experience.

Don't waste your time nor money on a movie like this, it's not worth it.
