More Movie Taglines:
  • On Jupiter's moon something deadly is happening
  • On Io, one of Jupiters moons, Sean Connery is the law.
  • Even in space, the ultimate enemy is man.
  • On Jupiter's moon he's the only law.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Marshal William T. O'Neil: Are you Dr. Lazarus? Lazarus: Yes. Take two aspirin and call me in the morning. That's a doctor joke.
  • Marshal William T. O'Neil: I'd like a report of all the incidents in the last six months. I'd like it soon, or I might just kick your nasty ass all over this room. That's a marshal joke.
  • Lazarus: Such a smart piece of equipment, and a wreck like me trying to run it.
  • Lazarus: You know, you haven't your medical all-star here. Company doctors are like ship's doctors. Most are just one shuttle flight ahead of a malpractice suit.
  • Security Officer Slater: Some cupcake named "Cane" decided that he didn't need an environment suit. They're still sponging him off the elevator walls.
Movie 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 (1977) (also directed by Peter Hyams)
  • Director Trademark: [Peter Hyams] a character named Spota.
  • The tag-line "Even in space, the ultimate enemy is man" is a reference to the previous success of Alien (1979).
  • 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.
