Synopsis


Outland
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., Rovi

    I liked Sean Connery in this movie. He owned the lead role and made it a good, classic movie.

    Connery is a space cop. The bad guys don't like cops that can't be bought. It's cartel vs cop. Just not on earth. Fun twist.

    I watched this movie many years ago and always wanted to own a copy. I had hoped to buy it in Blu-ray but it is ridiculously expensive for an older movie. So I'm settling for regular DVD because I like the move so much I couldn't pass it up.

    A Well-Crafted Film - And A Big Upgrade!

    Posted
    Anonymous

    The old DVD of this title was one of the very worst for picture quality. Anyone who ever saw it knows that it was badly in need of a new transfer. Well, it got one . . . and the difference is remarkable. The new blu-ray is very accurate to the way the film originally looked. It's still a dark film with a lot of drab colors, but the image is clear. Toss your old DVD immediately -- this is a well made, suspenseful and smart film . . . and it has never looked better!

    good movie horrible transfer

    Don't be fooled on this one. It says enhanced for widescreen tvs and its not. Also, this movie has one of the worst video transfers that i have ever seen. Probably not as bad as the original Highlander disc, but still bad. As for the movie, i really like it. I grew up watching it. the sets are cool, and i love a lot of the concepts.
