"On Io, one of Jupiters moons, Sean Connery is the law."



A marshal in outer space assigned to a remote mining colony refuses to look the other way when miners begin dying from a deadly narcotic designed to increase their productivity in this film patterned on High Noon (1952). Separated from his family, the marshal finds few allies in the corporate-controlled colony when assassins are sent to take care of him.

HIGH NOON in space with Sean Connery vs. Peter Boyle.

What's not to like?

I really like this movie and I don't think it gets the attention that it deserves. It's really gritty and dark.

Haven't seen it since I was a kid. I remember I rented it the same night as I rented Rutger Hauer's Split Second.

Both raging movies.

I don't know if I'd call it exploitation. It was a pretty glossy production. A good sci-fi, with a very basic easy to follow plot. And one of Sean's best non-Bonds.

One of the most overlooked movies of 1981 way better than Tootsie.
