Part one of my review of the underrated sc-fi thriller, Outland(1981) starring Sean Connery, Peter Boyle, Frances Sternhagen, James Sikking, Kika Markham, Clarke Peters, Steven Berkoff, and John Ratzenberger. Directed by Peter Hyams.

Trivia

The mining company is referred by the name "Con-Amalgamate". This is the same name given to the company that manufactured the defective life support system mentioned in Capricorn One (also directed by Peter Hyams)

The tag-line "Even in space, the ultimate enemy is man" is a reference to the previous success of Alien.

The role of Dr. Lazarus was first offered to Colleen Dewhurst.

One of the few films to be released theatrically with the "Megasound" sound system format. Megasound was a movie theater sound system created by Warner Bros in the early 1980s. It was used to enhance the premiere engagements of a handful of Warner features. Theaters equipped for Megasound had additional speakers mounted on the left, right and rear walls of the auditorium. Selected soundtrack events with lots of low-frequency content (thuds, crashes, explosions, etc) were directed to these speakers at very high volume, creating a visceral effect intended to thrill the audience.
