Grounded in such a recognizable reality that the science-fiction elements are almost indiscernible.

It seems, for all its futuristic malarkey, as contrived and antiquated a melodrama as may be seen any night on the Late Show.

Soylent Green is Edward G. Robinson's movie. As a man who remembers the wonders of civilization before it died, he is witty, cultivated and endlessly appealing.

It's a hard one to judge, and while I enjoyed watching it, I don't see myself watching it again...I guess an average score then, but I am glad I finally watched it.

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

...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.
June 5, 2007
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.
June 5, 2007
Uneven and slightly muddled futuristic horror story -- not really science fiction, more like an antipollution PSA gone berserk.

Modestly entertaining.

Good, solid stuff, assembled efficiently enough to be pretty persuasive.
October 10, 2005
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.

A doozy.
