Criminally overlooked by the general sci-fi public. This is truly, a hidden treasure. A 21st century spin on the classic 'dodge city' style western where the new sheriff comes to town and is determined to run out the corrupt rulers of an off-world mining colony. Sean Connery very quickly finds himself alone against a huge corporate machine who will stoop to ruthless levels to protect their mining productivity. I won't spoil it by saying more, but if you like a good, well written screenplay, superb acting and a solid suspense, action/thriller - this will thrill you to bits!

This film may not have been a box office hit like Star Wars & Alien, but is still worthy of a place in any Sci-Fi movie collection. No aliens in this as it deals with down to earth issues like greed, corruption, and crime. Sean Connery puts in a great performance while the film itself keeps the tension simmering all the way through to the end. My only criticism of the movie is that they chose Jupiters moon IO as the location of the mining colony which as any space expert will tell you would be impossible as IO is covered in active volcanoes. Still a good movie though.

Format: DVD
I discovered this forgotten gem through a movie magazine, and would definitely recommend it for fans of Sean Connery, understated Sci-fi, and claustrophobic thrillers. Connery plays a tough Space Marshall, who deserted by his wife and son becomes target of a bunch of ruthless drug-dealers, after he attempts to get to the bottom of some murderous shenanigans being conducted on the moonbase Io, where he has been recently stationed. Frances Sternhagen provides welcome support as the hard-bitten base doctor who becomes the Marshall O'Brien's only ally, and the action is sparse but suitably tense; Connery's laconic presence is what gives the film most of its impetus.
With a few pretty gruesome deaths, and some memorable scenes including Stephen Berkoff waving a gun around in a drug-induced frenzy, this is solid adult Sci-fi; light years away from the froth of Star Wars but produced at a time when the Sci-fi boom was at its zenith - and arguably one of Connery's most underrated films to date.

This is a brilliant movie. Editing and pace through-out mean the film pulls you along and rarely gets stuck in its own naval-gazing. Connery is awesome and the support characters believable. Classic movie. The blu ray is better than the DVD but not by a million miles so don't expect crystal clear transfer, some scenes are better than others and by and large the result is pleasing... Obviously this movie does get ridiculed by some who state that decompression does not cause people to explode but of course they are assuming that the miners body chemistry is not altered due to an air-mix that is different to current space exploration.... Its never stated of course but the plot would clearly allow for that so the "know-it-alls" are not extirely correct to state their "facts" about future-based fiction.

'Outland' is one of my favourite science fiction films.

Throughout my teenage years I watched my VHS copy of it so many times I am surprised it didn't wear out!

I have owned it on DVD for several years now and although I have continued to watch it quite regularly I have never been particularly satisfied with the quality of the image though and longed for a remastered DVD release that would allow for the film to be seen as intended, unfortunately this never happened.

I was therefore over the moon (that's Earths moon, not Io!) when I heard that a Blu-ray release was scheduled for summer 2012; I was initially disappointed though when I discovered that the release was just American, but I then found out it was REGION FREE and so pre-ordered it straight away!

Before I get to a description of the disc and the quality I will give a synopsis of the plot, be warned if you have not seen the film you may not wish to read this next section!

**** START OF SPOILERS*****

The film is set in the future, about a hundred years from now, and it is set in the titanium ore mining outpost Con-Am 27 on Io, the innermost moon orbiting Jupiter.

Sean Connery portrays the character Federal Marshal William O'Niel, and at the start of the film he has just been assigned to a tour of duty at the aforementioned Con-Am 27.

The conditions on Io are extremely difficult, due to the lack of a breathable atmosphere and low gravity the miners have to carry out all their work in restrictive and uncomfortable spacesuits and the shifts required to complete all the necessary work are long and hard, to make up for this they are paid well as long as the targets are met.

I have been waiting for a clearer/cleaner version of this underated cult classic and this Blu-ray version does not disapoint. Okay so it's not a remastered version and some of the graininess from the original film exists and the upscaling does expose a couple of special effects to scrutiny in todays digital age. Don't expect any extras accept a very smudgy cinema trailer (which shows the difference between SD/HD and Peter Hyams commentary. However, it does not detract from the film itself. You can tell the Alien and Blade Runner influences in this film not suprising as it had the Alan Ladd jnr stamp of approval.Okay, so there are some plot holes and at a scientific level the installation could not have existed on Io due to Jupiter's radiation belt, the reduced gravity would have made the outside scenes behave differently etc. but this is science fiction from the eighties, so you are allowed to suspend some disbelief! The film itself runs along at fair old pace, it deals with the set pieces and tension well. I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting Io in the company of Sean Connery. If you liked Outland first time round - you cannot go far wrong in adding this to your Blu-ray collection. One word for the company Marvelio who I used to supply the disc - fantastic. The disc took 10 days to arrive from USA , Marvelio kept me updated throughout. Brilliant. I had no problems playing this disc on a standard UK Blu-ray. Recommended.
