Poster and trailer for ‘Outlaw’ Uk vigilante movie

Outlaw posterWhen I first heard about 'Outlaw' I didn't exactly jump for joy, I didn't enjoy either of Nick Loves previous films; 'The Football Factory' and 'The Business' did very little for me and I presumed 'Outlaw' would fall into the same category. Wether or not I enjoy the final product remains to be seen, but the new trailer for 'Outlaw' has certainly raised my hopes significantly. 

Lead by Bryant (Shaun Bean) a group of men that feel betrayed by their government and let down by their police force form a modern-day outlaw posse in order to right what they see as the wrongs of society.

The trailer almost has a touch of 'V for Vendetta' about it, and certainly looks much better than I thought It would, which comes as a pleasant shock. Even Danny Dyer, an actor I previously hated surprised me in 'Severance' recently and made me question my previous opinion of him.

Although I find It ironic that Nick Love's first two films glorified football hooliganism and the criminal underworld, and yet this films is about people fighting against those worlds, i'll hold any judgements until I see the final film.

  1. Just saw The Business and although there were nice bits, I wouldn’t say I loved it.

    However you’re right, Outlaw is looking great, and with Sean Bean next to Bob Hoskins? I am looking forward to this one. Thanks for the heads up, link back for you.

  2. I really like this poster. I think more movies should keep it simple like this. It’s much more impactful than having big photoshoped explosions and slick metalic looking 3d writing. Reminds me of 123klan work but a little grimier.

    Sean Bean is back and bad to the bone. The trailer looks smokin’ although these violent type of vigiliantee films are not my thing. His role looks very meaty with plenty of gravitas. Not just your typical gratuitious violence, but it seems this film has a social message. The government and police are just as violent as criminals, so it is up to citizens to save society. This looks like the premise, although I don’t believe in vigilantees taking the law into their own hands. In movie-land this kind of hijinks gets rationalized as “noble” which is disturbing.

    I’m also looking forward to The Mighty Bean in “The Hitcher” yet another film he plays a baddie tough guy villian. It releases in the USA nationwide January 19th.

    This filmaker raised money by charging people a fee to appear as extras in the film. Very creative and I think that is wonderful way to circumvent the factory producted big budget hollywood muck that studios churn out.

  4. is this movie gonna be released in Canada? just curious cuz im a huge Bean fan and its not every day that you see him star as the protagonist

  5. I had a quick glance at imdb, and Nick Loves other films; The Buiness and The Football factory weren’t released in canada so i’d say the chances are low.

    You might be able to catch it at a festival at some point.
