From Amazon.co.uk

Outland is another in a long line of Westerns retooled for science fiction. Writer-director Peter Hyams (Capricorn One, 2010, Timecop) re-stages High Noon in outer space, with Sean Connery as O'Neil, the marshal for a settlement on one of Jupiter's moons. While investigating the deaths of some miners, O'Neil discovers that mine boss Peter Boyle has been giving his workers an amphetamine-like, work-enhancing drug that keeps them productive for months--until they finally snap and go berserk. When Boyle sends killer henchmen to neutralize the lawman, O'Neil is unable to get the miners to back him up. Outland is no classic but it offers solid suspense in an otherworldly atmosphere. It also stars Frances Sternhagen, James B. Sikking (Howard on television's Hill Street Blues) and John Ratzenberger (later to become famous as Cliff on the sitcom Cheers). --Jim Emerson

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.

Plot Synopsis.
In the distant future police Marshall William T. O'Niel is stationed at a remote mining colony on the Jupiter moon of Io & begins investigating a series of murders besides uncovering a drug-smuggling conspiracy & discovers the one thing all the deaths have in common is a lethal amphetamine-type drug, which allows the miners to work continuously for days at a time until they become "burned out" and expire.

O'Niel follows the trail of the dealers, which leads to a man named Mark Sheppard who is overseeing the colony as O'Niel gets no help from the populace of Jupiters Moon when he later finds himself marked for death by Sheppards lethal assassins who have been hired to kill him.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
'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.

What can you say about this film? It has shoot outs, it has a completely over the top performance from Steven Berkoff. But for me the central character, O'Neil played by Sean Connery, is really well played.
O'Neil is called in as the new marshall on a mining facility. Unbeknown to O'Neil the only problem is that the miners are taking are taking a drug that increases their performance but also has really bad side effects. There's one scene where one of the miners hallucinates and appears to be seeing spiders. Really intense stuff.
Meanwhile O'Neil's wife takes off because she's had enough of being stuck in back of beyond places. Then there's the bounty hunters after O'Neil because the drug dealers who are effectively running the facility want O'Neil dead. Poor guy, doesn't anyone cut him a break?
However one of the best scenes of the whole film is where O'Neil walks into the bar where the Manager of the facility is enjoying a drink or two and O'Neil knock's him out.
Outstanding!
