Movie Info

In the year 2274, young residents enjoy an idyllic, hedonistic lifestyle within the protective confines of a domed city. The general belief is that when each person turns 30, they are reincarnated for another blissful life cycle. Those who know the much darker truth become "runners" and flee to a hidden sanctuary. When law enforcement officer Logan (Michael York) goes undercover to locate the refuge, he winds up instead trying to initiate a revolution with runner Jessica (Jenny Agutter).

Audience Reviews for Logan's Run

  • Feb 20, 2021
    Strong concept and colorful, creative set design keep 'Logan's Run' holding up well past 30. I have a thing for miniatures (blame Weta Workshop) and this hits the spot. 'Logan' combines miniatures, matte paintings, and holograms of the time to great effect, all of which are guided by some impressive art direction. There's a mixed bag of pros and cons - eye-catching spectacle, borderline stiff performances, groovy costumes (Michael York's evening robe though!), discussion-prompting ecological themes, curious third-act pacing - but 'Logan's juicy influence is clear on some of the best contemporary sci-fi flicks.

    Between 3 and 3.5. I barely give it 3.5, just for originality.

    Logan's Run is a great bad movie. What makes it great is the genuine energy and seriousness put into it. As sci-fi, it is not even terrible, but rather is fun as far as the concepts go. The youthful earnestness (typical of that era, like Luke in Star Wars) of the lead actors is a refreshing change from typical posturing one expects, and it adds to the fun/silly vibe. Perhaps four stars is generous, but I enjoyed it; just the type of flick to put on when you have a few random hours to kill late at night.

    Science-fiction continues to be one of cinema's least-promising genres. "Logan's Run" is another one of the many sci-fi films that can't deliver, and while it's not a complete disaster, it doesn't work on any level. The acting is hokey, the special effects are outdated, the costume design is corny and cheap-looking and the storytelling is stale. While the opening hour is strong and interesting, the film's second half is overlong, boring and feels incredibly aimless. The miniature sets are spectacular and Peter Ustinov is amusing in his role, but ultimately, "Logan's Run" is disappointing and forgettable.
