I’ll admit that I watched this movie because the description made it sound really cool. A war veteran learns that his daughter died from an apparent drug overdose but when he gets to the United States to claim her body it’s not her and the search for his lost daughter begins with a trail of lies that he must follow. The concept of the movie isn’t original. We’ve seen it all before but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the movie will be bad right? Well it is bad. It’s really, really bad. This is not even a Grade B action movie. It’s lower then that. I think a C might be too high for this crap that I just got finished watching.
The action scenes are terrible and the only fighting that this supposed to be war veteran did in the whole movie was throw a few punches and slam a dude on the ground. The main actor wasn’t bad but I can’t remember his name. I actually don’t want to remember anyone’s name from this film. The camera was way too shaky during fight scenes and on some scenes I thought the camera man was drunk because it was just going crazy for no apparent reason.
No one in the movie except the main character has any back story so you don’t really care what happens to anyone. It’s not like that even matters because you know no one is going to die. This movie is that predictable and it honestly made me want to take a long, long nap. I put aside watching Captain Phillips for this shit? I need to be slapped in the face or ran over by a bus just so I can get some of my movie dignity back.
The acting by everyone in the movie is really cheap. No one even tried to put on decent performances. The movie itself feels cheap and the plot tears itself apart by the end of the movie. It goes from a father trying to find his daughter to everyone trying to rob a rich man out of millions of dollars so they can ride off into sunset and live the rest of their lives without having to worry about money ever again.
The Outsider isn’t even worth reviewing but so I can save all of you an hour and a half of boredom I’m doing it. This movie is complete garbage I hope whoever wrote, and directed this crap never directs another movie ever again.
