Crime solving mystery thriller that delivers.
13 January 2020 | by cruise01See all my reviews

3 out of 5 stars.

The Outsider builds a storytelling world from Stephen King. About Terry (Jason Batemen) who was seen through evidence that he murdered a child. While Terry was actually out on a business trip and has no clue on who this mysterious person that looks like him.

It is a slow moving direction. A little dull. The mystery in this story is worth watching as detectives are trying to investigate. And a mystery figure watching how this is playing out.

Decent cast so far.
