OUTNUMBERED: The Western is Back in the Australian Thriller Packed with Old School Showdowns and Real Life Cowboys!

By: John M Jerva

One genre that I need to promote more on the site is definitely the Western genre and we have a good looking one for you courtesy of the land down under. After being released in its native Australia, the movie which is titled Outnumbered brings back old school Western vibes and is now ready to take the U.S. by storm. Ahead of the release, we have new key art and a trailer which is now available and you can view it below!

OUTNUMBERED is a gripping western tale of family, revenge and justice, set in the late 1800’s in Australia.The movie opens with two young boys, Billy and Jack, witnessing their father being gunned down in cold blood. The movie then skips forward some twenty plus years to where Billy and Jack come across a stagecoach that has been held up. There is one survivor, a young Pinkerton Marshall, who is the only witness to the robbery and murder of his fellow Pinkerton Marshall, the stagecoach driver and his off sider. Billy and Jack endeavor to get the young Marshall to medical help and contact the authorities. In doing this good deed, they themselves become the target of the villainous Crocker and his gang of robbers and murderers. A race against time and outlaws begins, just to stay alive, involving kidnappings, hostage situations, double crosses, shoot outs and gun fights. Not only is Billy and Jack’s courage tested, but their moral values as well, when it is revealed that Crocker is the same man who had killed their father. Is it justice or revenge they seek?

The filmmakers also made an official statement about Outnumbered and hails the film for its authentic action and drama. The movie has been in the making for almost a decade and features real life Australian Outback cowboys who bring an aura of authenticity to the movie.

Filmmakers’ Statement:

OUTNUMBERED is a gripping drama of the ‘western’ genre, filmed in the picturesque Freestone Valley, on the Darling Downs, Queensland, Australia. OUTNUMBERED was made by Chris Mauch, with the assistance of his wife, Julie, both being 5th generation Aussie cattle and crop farmers. Since he was a boy, Chris has had a love of film, both behind and in front of the camera and has always dreamed of making a feature film that the whole world can see and enjoy. This love partly was inspired by his father, Ivan, who made mini movies on his 8mm camera.

Almost a decade in the making, OUTNUMBERED is an action packed, gun fighting drama with twists, turns, a little humor and engaging characters tied together with beautiful Australian landscapes and horse riding scenes. A remarkable feature of this movie is that most of the cast are not actors pretending to be cowboys but are, in fact, real Australian cowboys who just happen to be able to act!

Great appreciation and credit must go to Emmett Adcock, the Director/Cameraman/Editor for his incredible vision, creative talent and film expertise. His massive contribution made OUTNUMBERED more than we could have ever hoped for.

When done right, nothing beats a good ol western and Outnumbered certainly looks like it’ll please fans looking for more of this type of moviemaking. There’s gunfire aplenty and the cinematography of Australia looks downright fantastic with the cast being a strong selling point. Too many times the market is flooded with B grade films so it’s refreshing to see a strong example like this picture.

Be on the lookout for this one and we’ll update you with more info. In the meantime, check out the official trailer below!
