The Outlaws Review: An entertaining crime action film with plenty of enjoyable moments!
22 March 2018 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

Movie: The Outlaws (18): Action/Crime - Korean


  • Ma Dong-seok's performance is cool, realistic and excellent. Apart from him, almost every actor, especially Yoon Kye-sang, also delivers a terrific performance.
  • The action scenes are very well executed and are a delight to watch.
  • The film uses humour surprisingly very well.
  • The script is watertight and the editing too is praiseworthy. Most films on this theme are slow-paced, but this one is quite fast paced and that's why it never bores.
  • The climax is very good and the ending is excellent.


  • Nil.

Repeat value: Yes

THE OUTLAWS is another entertaining and extremely well-made South Korean crime action movie. There'a nothing more I can say, just go and watch it quick!
