Organized crime may be organized, but it's hard to imagine that it's actually as dull as The Outsider makes it out to be.

Can a gaijin ever be trusted like family, or will his motives ultimately be self-serving? It's an interesting question in a story that's otherwise completely devoid of interesting questions, but The Outsider is too enamored with its foreign star.

The Outsider is Nick, and perhaps that's the film's most fatal flaw. We're never allowed near the guy, and Leto's not the type to draw you in or emote. He's too alien.

Beat for beat, one of the most tediously generic yakuza stories imaginable.

The only thing about The Outsider that even comes close to cracking the oppressive shell it's encased in is Tadanobu Asano's performance as Kiyoshi.

If the film's not going to interrogate the politics behind its core premise of an army man's quest to out-Asian actual Asian men, it's scarcely worth telling at all.

Variety
Dull, flavorless, 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.

Take Leto out of the picture and you have an even less noteworthy movie, a yakuza tale with an originality deficit.

"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.
