Not bad, at all really, but it becomes clear that Logan's Run is a film that experiences the flaws of cinema of the seventies, namely the look and feel of the film. Michael York is surprisingly compelling, and Jenny Agutter will make mouths drop through looks alone. A fine film if you can look past it's inadequacies of flamboyancy.

Between 2001 and Star Wars, this was the cool science fiction movie we were all watching to escape the Planet of the Apes craze. Logan's Run offers a great concept of future life on Earth: a sterile domed city with a heavily monitored citizens, protected from the post-apocalyptic wilds of the outside world. There's the shocking truth about population control with the palm-light age indicators leading to Carousel when folks reach 30 years. There's also those who won't accept that and "Run" to a place of myth called "Sanctuary". There were some bold and memorable images offered: the street cleaners which dissolved dead bodies, beautiful Jessica (Jenny Agutter) appearing for Logan (Michael York), the freaky laser plastic surgery shop with Farrah Fawcett, the trippy orgy room, the Ankh key to open the door to Sanctuary, the ice caves with the silver Box robot and the frozen food, the wilderness and the ancient city, the librarian with the cats, the fight with Francis (Richard Jordan), and the amazing return to the domed city. It's such a terrific journey.
