The Outsider really isn’t a great film. I wanted to like it, and I usually enjoy gritty crime movies, but this one was just everything I’ve seen done before but somehow a lot worse than when I’ve seen it done before. And even though I’m trying to find something good to say about it, I really can’t. The cinematography was good, I guess? But not good enough...

Dull, flavourless, and fundamentally incurious, "The Outsider" is a clueless misfire, the cinematic equivalent of a study-abroad student showing off the kanji forearm tattoo whose meaning he never bothered to learn.

"The Outsider" is a slick copy of multiple, much-better films and TV series. It's so well-polished it's practically featureless.

Designed to offer Western audiences the opportunity to see a Caucasian movie star, and a heartthrob one at that, in an unusual genre setting, The Outsider rarely manages to rise above its audience-baiting concept.

A solid crime movie, elevated by a keen sense of place and some fine performances.
