... I found myself reflecting that sf writers can get away with a lot on the printed page that moviemakers just can't.

Despite its grabber of a premise, Logan's Run flaunts poorly developed plot specifics; as such, it's terminally silly. Nevertheless, as a camp curio, it still has an odd but undeniable staying power. [Blu-ray]

Maybe its ambitions outpace its performance, but at least it tries.

It's a good story with a well-defined sense of jeopardy, and appropriate performances by York and Agutter, but my most major problem is that too much is unexplained.

A hit-and-miss futuristic film about a world in which nobody is allowed to live past 30 years.

A numbing combination of sloppy writing, vulgar art direction, high school acting, and bungled special effects.

Cautionary tale of a futuristic society bent on destroying all but its youngest citizens.

Fundamentally, this is just further proof of Hollywood's untiring ability to reduce all science fiction to its most feeble stereotypes.

Harmless fun enlivened by a couple of sequences that are as good as the entire film should have been.

Logan's Run is a vast, silly extravaganza that delivers a certain amount of fun, once it stops taking itself seriously.

Pre-Star Wars sci-fi; the events of the next year rendered it obsolete with record speed although there's a little more than usual here to enjoy.

In the future, it's gonna look a lot like the '70s.

Logan's Run is not great filmmaking, but it's a nice sci-fi thriller with an interesting enough plot to keep it propelling along.

If you can resist the urge to laugh, it's still a visually fascinating and provocatively entertaining film.

Listen close enough and you might just hear Ed Wood's voice in the background clamoring with glee.

Despite some dreary bits, Logan's Run isn't bad sci-fi and is an interesting exercise in what the future was thought to be like back in the 1970s.
