Among the most intelligent and entertaining sci-fi films of the 1970.

Suffers from age, but Trumbull's vision still glows, as does terrific Bruce Dern in practically solo turn.

Visual effects pioneer Douglas Trumbull (notable for his work on 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner and Close Encounters of the Third Kind), made his directorial debut with this eco-themed sci-fi classic

Silent Running concentrates heavily on special effects, resulting in some stunning imagery. Dern gives an engaging, against-type performance, though the script is stretched out very thin to support a feature-length film.

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

Embora obviamente datado e piegas em alguns momentos (as seqüências musicais são constrangedoras), desperta algumas boas indagações filosóficas que se tornam bem mais interessantes que as discussões ecológicas que o filme pretende provocar.

The movie has a great premise, but the execution doesn't live up to the potential.
June 4, 2007
The production lacks much dramatic credibility and often teeters on the edge of the ludicrous.
