Almost fifteen years after Michael Douglas played an ordinary man betrayed by society, Britain has its own version of Falling Down

Directed by Nick Love, Outlaw follows five men who form a vigilante gang after becoming embittered over lenient sentencing, police corruption, yob culture and the early release of violent offenders. Starring Sean Bean and Bob Hoskins, the movie follows the group as they mete out summary justice in a contemporary Britain riven with violence.Collapse )
