Not well thought-out and a genuine disappointment for all its visibility in the popular conversation
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 1, 2011
Where so many science fiction visions of the era have dated, this gritty creation of a depressed (and depressing) future... looks all the more real.
September 14, 2009
...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.

June 15, 2007
The film was a typical seventies sci-fi effort, scientifically illiterate and unimaginatively composed.
| Original Score: 2/5
June 5, 2007
A sluggishly directed look at life and death in the 21st century.

June 5, 2007
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.
May 9, 2006
Modestly entertaining.

February 9, 2006
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 9, 2005
Their 21st-century New York occasionally is frightening but it is rarely convincingly real.

The future never looked as retro...
| Original Score: 2.5/5
October 5, 2003
A doozy.
August 30, 2003
still contains enough pleasures even with the 'secret' so well known

August 22, 2003
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.
August 10, 2003
It's quite an amusing movie.
| Original Score: 3/5
August 2, 2003
The SNL skits are better
| Original Score: 1/5
April 2, 2003
A stoic Heston, a nice turn for Robinson, and see-through ironies.
| Original Score: 3/5
January 11, 2003
It would have made a great episode of The Twilight Zone, but feature length is too much for its premise.
| Original Score: 2/5
November 15, 2002
Great sci-fi with a surprisingly environmentalist message -- you have to wonder if Heston paid close attention.
