It began much like Fight Club. Outlaw depicted the violence that’s common in any major cities of the world. Not only that, it portrayed the corruption and ruthlessness of people in the government. Yup, the world is fucked up. In today’s world, even a 56 year old can be beaten up by a politician’s bodyguard.
In Outlaw, Sean Bean trains and leads a band of vigilantes in their quest to rid the streets of senseless violence. They went to the root of the problem, a drug lord named Manning (Rob Fry). The story and the actors were good but something got lost in the process of the filming. There are times that the scenes were too shaky, much like Quantum of Solace. A better script could have helped it from being a mediocre action flick to something more memorable.
What I liked about Outlaw is that it tackled the issue of corruption and violence that’s very much relevant at present.
In my country, a mayor and his bodyguards have beaten up a father and his son in front of his daughter because of a dispute in a golf course. They say golf’s the gentlemen’s game but I’d rather take up boxing. At least I’ll be expecting the punches.
Bryant (Sean Bean): I’m talking about legitimate targets. I’m talking about people that hurt you. I’m talking about fucking violence.
I don’t want to wish something bad against anyone but I do hope that some Outlaw gets the better of Mayor Nasser Pangandaman, Jr. For more info regarding the incident, go here.
The Outlaws got set up for an ambush. Gene Dekker survived and killed Manning in the end.
