Logan's Run is set in a Dystopian future where life ends at 30 due to a malfunctioning robot. It's much cleverer than that sounds though, questioning governments, societies, morality and religion. Its only downfall is that it hasn't dated that well. It does have a certain kitsch chic about it though and it's content still stands bold against contemporary cinema - It's still far superior compared to it's loose remake, The Island.

It really sums up all the fears of mortality and spiritual belief within one two hour movie, few science fiction movies dare to be as relevant or bold. While it might be riddled with crazy 70s special effects and costumes, it also has a very mature and wise sense to it. The characters are extremely interesting and the vision itself is truly unique. Michael York gives one of the most interesting performances, due to the fact that he essentially becomes another person by the end without anyone really noticing. The soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith is one of the best, its such a memorable and haunting element to the film itself. Logans Run continues to be an important piece of film history because it is just as much about the 60s and 70s as it is the possible future of mankind. Topics like brainwashing, vanity, and politics are among the many discussed throughout. Added to the already exciting and suspenseful plot of a man on the run and you have one enjoyable and worthwhile film experience.
