Plot

Young prince Zhao and his sister Lian find themselves on the run from their father's forces when their father, the king, is murdered by their older brother, Shing. They hire the reluctant aid of opium-addicted Jacob (Hayden Christensen), a war-weary Crusader who quickly finds himself bonding with the pair. Jacob must overcome his own personal demons and seek the assistance of his mentor, Gallain (Nicolas Cage), who is now a bandit leader known throughout China as The White Ghost. Reunited, the pair must overcome the sadistic Shing and his forces long enough to ensure that Zhao returns to his rightful place on the throne.

    Critical reception

    Outcast received unfavorable reviews from most critics. Rotten Tomatoes reports that 5% of 18 reviews were positive, with an average rating of 3.3/10. On Metacritic, the film has a 33 out of 100 rating based on 7 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews". Glenn Kenny of RogerEbert.com centered his review on the performances, primarily that of Nicolas Cage. Of it, he said it marked a career shift from Cage's "entertainingly eccentric phase" into his "genuinely befuddling and perhaps sad phase", and noted his "peculiar (of course)", "near-British accent"; he also criticized Hayden Christensen's performance as "lifeless". Jeanette Catsoulis of The New York Times called the movie a "loony", "wannabe epic rattling with swords and clichés". She chiefly criticized the "barnacle-encrusted plot" as being "dumbed down to the studs", along with the performance of Christensen, while praising photography and "surprisingly classy" battle scenes. Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times had kinder words to say, calling the movie "visually arresting, smartly paced, well-edited", but otherwise "unremarkable". He said the film may best be remembered for Cage's "warrior coif", saying it was "perhaps his most unflattering movie hairdo yet — and that's saying a lot" and that Cage could "pinch-hit for Gene Simmons at a KISS concert".

    Sequel

    On April 15, 2014, producer Jeremy Bolt announced plans for a sequel.
