Outlander is a 2008 science fiction film directed by Howard McCain and starring James Caviezel. Caviezel has described Outlander to be a light combination of Braveheart and Highlander.
Outlander begins when a spacecraft crashes onto planet earth. The ship lands in Norway during the time of the Vikings, 709 A.D. From the wreckage emerges a soldier from another world – Kainan – who hunts a vicious, photo-luminescent creature known as the Moorwen. Man and monster both seek revenge for violence committed against them. As the Moorwen ravages the Viking lands, killing everything in its path, Kainan forms an alliance with the primitive but fierce warriors. Whilst trying to hunt for the Moorwen, war brews among the Vikings, which culminated with both sides taking immense losses. As the enemy Vikings retreat into the forests, the Moorwen strikes, leaving the vikings no choice but to run for help to their once close enemies. Together, the two sides attempt to destroy the Moorwen. The village takes massive casualties, including one of the tribal kings. The village in fear and its warriors demoralised, most of the vikings leave the village in search of a new home and safety. Kainan and the remaining warriors stand together to destroy the Moorwen. Kainan assists the Vikings by salvaging pieces of his crashed spacecraft and forging weapons capable of harming the creature. After a harrowing journey, the Vikings and Kainan confront the Moorwen in a desperate struggle to survive. In the end, Kainan must make a choice that will change his fate, and the Vikings forever.
