[Highly rated reviewer]Nowhere near as bad as I was expecting, actually thought that Love was looking to get a point across here. However he lacks the finese to do so and although Bean is suitably cast and Dyer was somewhat better in this role than I would have thought the film lacks something. The plot is also rather aimless and showsreal character flaws, at one point this group of 'outlaws' cannot bring themselves to harm a man responsible for the death of a pregnant woman but then can engage in a gun battle with the police???? Allow us a little intelligence Mr Love.

Don't botherBy Ewan444 (4 reviews) , 07 Oct 2013What a shame....with a cast like this, it should have been so good. The plot is thin to say the least, the acting is terrible, the editing awful, there is no character development. You can tell it was made on a low budget, as they couldn't afford a tripod for the camera; Either that or someone let their 8 year old nephew have a go at filming....the shaky camera work is infuriating and made us feel a little nauseous. I was hoping for something along the lines of Football factory, but this was nothing like it. The only (slight) saving grace was Bob Hoskins, who managed to do ok despite the poor direction. Give this one a miss

Sean Bean Being Sean BeanBy Richie77777 (274 reviews) from Essex , 27 Jul 2013Outlaw isn't a bad film, it starts in a strong fashion and it's certainly Fight Club esq, (with one scene rallying the troops in the gym), but I feel it just goes down hill. Its only 100 minutes long, but I have to say that it drags and I feel that it could have been so much better. Its taking a premise that isn't usually dealt with in movies.
Possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen...By LeslieAustin (4 reviews) , 27 Mar 2013I was initially put off this film by dint of the headline 'stars' being Danny Dyer and Sean Bean, but then Bob Hoskins was also listed, and he's a 'proper' actor, so it couldn't be *that* bad, could it? Unfortunately within a few seconds it becomes abundantly clear that, yes, even with the wonderful Mr H (who must either have done this as a favour, or his career is now truly over) this was going to be a painful hour and forty minutes. Bean and Dyer are true to form, playing their usual one-dimensional characters and the performances from the rest of the cast are little better. Even Hoskins struggles with the poor script, lacklustre directing and a character devoid of credibility. As other reviewers have noted, the idea behind the film is good, it's the execution that lets it down. The only bonus for me was that I got to witness Danny Dyer suffer a good kicking, not once, but three times, which almost made up for the rest of the film being so poor. Almost.
Outlaw 2007By a customer , 18 Feb 2013I enjoyed this movie although it was a few years old I'm a fan of Sean Bean so I thought his moody presence help make the plot. Worth a look
