The production lacks much dramatic credibility and often teeters on the edge of the ludicrous.

The film is enjoyable for its intimacy, seriousness, and intelligent character work, virtues not perpetuated by the subsequent new wave.

Silent Running is no jerry-built science fiction film, but it's a little too simple-minded to be consistently entertaining.
