I have just finished watching this "film" and i am completely stunned
by how unbelievably bad it is. Nick Love has to be the worst director
ever i hated ALL his other films and Outlaw is so bad it makes the
Football Factory look good.
The first half an hour is fairly promising and sets the scene well even
though i don't know why Sean Bean didn't smash through his own French
windows and ask what the hell his wife was doing with another man,
instead he goes and picks on some chav's which fair enough wasn't a bad
act. Then we have the almost homo-erotic moments with Sean Bean, his
security friend and his delightful array of secret
I can only hope that just like the moronic adverts for Morrisons and O2
Sean Bean accepted this role purely for financial reasons, because i do
think that the man has enough common sense to see that that a film
about a bunch of men running around with balaclava's on waiving antique
guns apparently dishing out justice for the greater good was nothing
but an atrocity to cinema.
Finally what is with Nick love's "Love" affair with Danny Dyer? Can he
make a film without him..
Could've Been Good....
Most people enjoy to see a movie where the wicked are punished by the
righteous, the wrong is made right, if the law fails then you become
the law etc, etc.
However, this is the right idea gone wrong. The film is hardly original
but the first thirty minutes does immerse you into the environment and
makes you feel for the characters which the film is based around.
Unfortunately this is where the connection ends and you're left with
your typical ruckas of a movie. With the scenes of turmoil, anguish and
violence, the director has opted for the random focus, 'handheld wobbly
camera treatment' which just becomes annoying and is often used to
cover up the lack of anguish, violence (ability).
If you've seen 'The Business' or 'The Football Factory' then expect
more of the same reworking of the similar ideals (with Danny Dyer
playing eerr Danny Dyer again - 'You Mug')
Unfortunately this movie goes nowhere and wraps itself up too quickly;
as it doesn't know where it is going and becomes overtly predictable..
