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

...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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

It's a rare film that makes death a pleasant and more preferable alternative than living
