Not well thought-out and a genuine disappointment for all its visibility in the popular conversation

Where so many science fiction visions of the era have dated, this gritty creation of a depressed (and depressing) future... looks all the more real.

...a movie based on an ending. And if you can't figure out that ending ten minutes into the movie, you aren't paying attention.

The film was a typical seventies sci-fi effort, scientifically illiterate and unimaginatively composed.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A sluggishly directed look at life and death in the 21st century.

The somewhat plausible and proximate horrors in the story of Soylent Green carry the production over its awkward spots to the status of a good futuristic exploitation film.

Uneven and slightly muddled futuristic horror story -- not really science fiction, more like an antipollution PSA gone berserk.

Good, solid stuff, assembled efficiently enough to be pretty persuasive.

This futuristic thriller just seems to keep getting better with age. An entertaining sci-fi flick done before special effects took over the genre.

Their 21st-century New York occasionally is frightening but it is rarely convincingly real.

Slant Magazine

Thanks to Phil Hartman's riotous Saturday Night Live impersonation of Charlton Heston's hysterical detective from Soylent Green, people who've never seen Richard Fleischer's film know its surprise ending.

The SNL skits are better

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

A stoic Heston, a nice turn for Robinson, and see-through ironies.

| Original Score: 3/5

Rob Vaux
Flipside Movie Emporium

It would have made a great episode of The Twilight Zone, but feature length is too much for its premise.

| Original Score: 2/5

New Times

Great sci-fi with a surprisingly environmentalist message -- you have to wonder if Heston paid close attention.

| Original Score: 4/5
