It would have made a great episode of The Twilight Zone, but feature length is too much for its premise.

Their 21st-century New York occasionally is frightening but it is rarely convincingly real.

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

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.

A sluggishly directed look at life and death in the 21st century.

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.

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

It's a rare film that makes death a pleasant and more preferable alternative than living
