The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
An advanced humanoid being crash-lands on Earth and finds himself in Norway 709 AD, however creatures known as Moorwen arrive with him, terrorizing the local Viking Villages. Left with nothing to fight the Moorwen the Outlander must convince the Vikings to rally with him and slay the Alien threat.
He ditches his space armor for a light T-Shirt. Much more protective.
Outlander is a science fiction film directed by Howard McCain that incorporates Vikings into it. The film had a moderate budget, however it was barely advertised if at all in most places in America. The film was a critical failure, barely making 10% of what its budget was. Some have criticized the film for being terribly paced accusing McCain's creature design as being nothing more than a cross between between better movies such as Predator and Alien.
Because Vikings and Aliens are awesome.
A humanoid Alien crash-lands in Norway in the year 709 A.D after his colony was attacked by a deadly alien known as a Moorwin. He emerges from the wreckage of his ship and finds his co-pilot dead, just before the ship sinks to the bottom of a lake. He is able to retrieve an advanced piece of technology that teaches him how to speak in the local Nordic Language, as well as an alien machine gun. He comes across a destroyed Viking village which has been burnt to the ground, as well as the half eaten corpse of a whale in the middle of the village. A viking scouting party, believe that this outlander is responsible for the massacre and ambush him. In the confusion he looses his gun and the Vikings take him prisoner.
This actor was going to be Karl Urban so they got someone who looked like Urban instead
They think that he is a member of another Viking Tribe with whom they are on the brink of war. Despite the Outlander's protests they hold him responsible and lock him up. He is able to escape when a Moorwind attacks the village, however the Vikings again mistake him as being responsible for it and capture him again, this time to eventually sentence him to death. When they discover one of the bodies of their fallen brothers they decide to listen to his tale about what they believe is some kind of Dragon. They agree to take the Outlander on a scouting party, albeit handcuffed, however he is able to slay a giant Grizzly Bear that attacks them despite having his hands restricted, effectively winning over the respect of the Vikings even though they still doubt the tale of his dragon.
This makes me sad in the Moorwin
Later that night the other Viking Village that they were on the brink of war with raids their town, believing that they were responsible for burning down one of their settlements. The outlander takes up arms against them and they are able to drive the invaders back, retreating to the surrounding forest. They then appear to advance on the Vikings again, however in reality they are retreating from a Moorwin attack. The Vikings see the Moorwin attack one of their enemies and decide to let the Rival Vikings seek shelter in their town. Together they decide to kill it, with the advisement of the Outlander who helps them create a series of traps. Despite their numbers, the Vikings expertise in combat and the Outlander's knowledge of technology the Moorwin is still going to be nearly impossible to trap.
Relation of Outlander to Human Race
How did they get dude who played Jesus in this film.
The outlander appears to be no different to a human, either aesthetically or in capability. He seems no more resilient to harm than any of the humans in the film and even his knowledge of technology does not allow him to make anything too technically challenging from the available resources. Much like how most people in contemporary society have a television but that doesn't mean they know how to fashion one. A piece of technology at the start of the film quickly teaches the outlander the entire Norse dialect, meaning that some knowledge of Earth is known by these Aliens. The device identifies Earth as an Abandoned Seed Colony, suggesting that perhaps the humans on Earth were originally planted by the race of the Outlander.
A Moorwin on its home planet.
The Moorwin seem to largely be a cross between a Xenomorph from Alien and a variation of Godzilla mixed with small elements of a Predator. They also have characteristics similar to Deep Sea Viperfish, in that they are able to use their bodies to manipulate light. They often use this to attract and scare prey, including humans who see a bunch of lights moving about in odd ways and investigates. The Moorwin's were native to a planet that the humanoid aliens wanted to colonize and so they nuked the planet, wiping out almost all of the Moorwins, who up until that point are shown almost as peaceful creatures. This can at times make the Moorwin's seem sympathetic despite the horrible ways in which they kill humans. Some scenes in the film suggest that the Moorwins are more than just beasts and actually are much more intelligent.
