Just saw this classic for the first time yesterday, having known the story from other scifi sources. I like the visuals in this, even the obvious miniature of the city's "railway" system. It's a rare scifi film that feels like the pace and distribution of plot facts feels as even and ensnaring as Logan's Run. The second half of the movie is especially rewarding in terms of depicting a foreign and unique alternate universe. It is a bit incredulous how often Francis keeps coming back to hunt down Logan, and consequently I did get caught off guard by Francis' big jump scare (though it was immediately followed by an internal groan of "not this guy again!"). Thought this was great and well deserves its label as "classic scifi".

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.
