Overview

For Marshal O'Neil (Sean Connery), the Jupiter moon Io is just another dingy mining town on the final frontier. When his wife leaves him and takes their son with them, it merely confirms that though he's traveled millions of miles, his life is going nowhere. Then he notices that miners are dying in strangely psychotic ways -- walking in space without spacesuits, carving up prostitutes. With the help of Dr. Lazarus (Frances Sternhagen), his investigation reveals that the miners are ingesting a lethal drug that speeds their work efforts. He learns that the company that runs the town is behind the drug. He confronts the town boss Sheppard Peter Boyle and soon has two hit men heading toward Io with a plan to kill him. As the seconds tick down to the next space shuttle's arrival, O'Neil plots to meet them and faces the biggest challenge of his life. ~ Nick Sambides, Jr.

    One Of the Best Sci-Fi Films Ever

    Outland was always one of my favorite sci-fi films: a suspense-thriller set in deep space with surprises all the way to the end. Sean Connery is an amazing lead in this movie, as the new police chief of a mining facility on another planet, who begins to piece together why the miners are starting to go insane. I grew up with films such as this, Alien, 2001, Blade Runner, 2010. It is really a crime-drama that is set in deep space, without aliens or monsters. It tackles issues that we face today, while exploring the mystery of what it would be like in zero-G. This is much lesser known than many other sci-fi films of that era however its timeless quality that focuses on the characters and plot make it easy to ignore the simplicity and lack of CG special effects. It may be not as well-know, but it is certainly one of the best.

    Okay, so it's "High Noon in Outer Space." Frances Sternhagen
    is my vote for Star. She might have been chosen for actual acting
    ability and not her physical beauty--like actresses in most other
    one-dimensional space operas are--but her likeability and believability
    are great.

    I Also Recommend:

    Outland

    I remember when I first saw this movie. I tracked it down again to watch it. It has an interesting plot with our hero finding ways to survive against professional hit men and a final surprise opponent. He also finds a way to straighten out his life. Any movie with Sean Connery as a star I will enjoy. I can only wish he would start starring in G and PG movies.
