Review

Io, Jupiter's innermost moon, hosts mining colony Con-Am 27, a high-tech hellhole. There Marshall William T. O'Niel (Sean Connery) probes some mysterious deaths among the miners. In pursuit of the truth, he's alone.

In Outland, writer/director Peter Hyams depicts a chilling extension of today's corporation-driven world. Dehumanisation is vividly evoked in the environments of production designer Phillip Harrison and special effects wizard John Stears, Academy Award winner for his work on Thunderball and Star Wars.

Remember quidco for extra savings.

Enjoy ;-)

Its effectively "High Noon" in space - it isn't a bad film and gets suitably claustrophobic in places but not Connery's finest hour and the "special effects" were never that special...

Oh I remember this.
Yep, High Noon in space.

With set design styles that borrow from Alien.

I was going to say surely this came out before Alien, but no Alien came out in 1979 :w00t:

Not a bad film in its day, probably dated by now - been a looooong time since I have seen this.

This brings back memories.
Was ok - not too bad, but not something I'd go out and buy.

Good price though.

All gone now.
