Outlaws gets off to a slow start and by the end feels like several movies in one. Its emphasis is on class and social position and how the law treats criminals from the upper classes differently from those who come from poverty. The somber tone of what starts as a movie about life in high school alters unexpectedly as the end offers a commentary on the unfairness of a system that dooms some to criminal lives and saves others before they stray far too far. This adds up to the story of a narrow escape from a ruined life.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
