OUTLAW is amazing!! Sean Bean and Bob Hoskins are a powerhouse team as a band of men, frustrated by the rising attacks of violence and the apparent helplessness of police, they decide to turn the tide, to do something instead of putting their heads down and doing nothing.
The story starts off a little slow, setting up characters and filling out their personalities and motivations (imagine that in a movie:). But once their intentions are worked out, the action is fast and furious.
OUTLAW is a great entry into British action. The ending, while bittersweet, was especially satisfying.
Don't miss OUTLAW. It's a blast!!

I thought it was kind of slow getting to its point, but if you're a big Bean fan like I am than you will enjoy it.
Terrible waste of talent

"Soldier returns to the UK and with the help of a small group - decide to take justice into their own hands. A great cast including Sean Bean and Bob Hoskins are unable to do justice to a terrible script.
Although this does show a little of the underbelly of the UK it is bleak and unpleasant and Bean's character has no redeeming features at all which makes it hard to sympathise with his views.
SPOILERS...As an example of how this fails to work - within a couple of days one character (a barrister) goes from balking at executing a murderer to getting involved in a machine gun shoot out with the police! There are few characters you associate with and this tagged onto a tedious script makes for some very poor viewing.
Best avoided, even if you (like me) enjoy action films"
