In the Year of the City 2274, humans live in a vast, bubbled metropolis, where computerized servo-mechanisms provide all needs so everyone can pursue endless hedonism. Endless, that is, until Lastday, when anyone who's 30 must submit to Carrousel, a soaring, spinning trip to eternity and supposed rebirth. The screen's first use of laser holography highlights this post-apocalyptic winner of a Special Achievement Academy Award for Visual Effects.* Michael York plays Logan 5, a Sandman authorized to terminate Runners fleeing Carrousel. Logan is almost 30. Catch him if you can.

"Logan's Run" is an adventure tale, a love story, a crime drama, a social satire, and a sumptuous visual spectacle all in one. The whole package is superbly enhanced by Jerry Goldsmith's inventive and varied score. This is one of the most visually stylish science fiction films ever made; it's full of scenes that are truly unforgettable.
The film is really grounded by the performances by the superb cast. Michael York and Jenny Agutter make an absolutely enchanting screen couple; the evolution of their characters' relationship is one of the key pleasures of the film. Richard Jordan brings complexity and intensity to his role as a fellow Sandman. And Peter Ustinov is delightfully warm, funny, and loveable in a critical supporting role.
The DVD includes a vintage "making of" featurette, as well as a full-length audio commentary by actor York, director Anderson, and costume designer Bill Thomas. The three discuss casting, stunts, special effects, Peter Ustinov's ad-libbing, and other aspects of making the film. They reveal some fascinating and delightful bits of trivia along the way. This is one of those great commentary tracks that makes you appreciate the film even more.
The commentary is both informative and amusing. The director Michael Anderson gives a good performance, accompoanied by Michael York who is very suave and silly, as you would expect him to be. He actually says things like, "you know, in movies, they sometimes go from the studio set to outside, just like that!" which is very funny. Also featured is the costume designer whose name of course escapes me. He sometimes seems a little embarrassed, but really I think most people wouldn't have the costumes any other way.
If anyone is reading this who doesn't already know the movie, I'd be surprised. It's THAT kind. Any showing in a group will result in disaster, unless your friends are all of a very like mind.
This movie isn't out on DVD in the UK, forcing me to cheat because I can't wait for it. PAL, by the way, is a bit sharper than NTSC but flickers a little more, so take your pick.
The premise is very good with the focus on Jessica and Logan. I like how Jessica was introduced via the telaporter, especially with her conversation with Logan. The whole story was very well constructed with Logan eventually becoming a runner to seek out sanctuary and running into a hot farah fawcett in the doctor's office.
The outside trip was very good as well, especially with Logan and Jessica making their way to Washington. I like how the did the rundown images of Washington. Peter Ustinov was very good as the old man, especially talking about the past.
The end was very well done. There is talk about re-make and i am sure i agree with the remaking the movie. However, it appears hollywood has no new ideas and rather re-hash old movies. The only benefit that i can see from re-make would be the graphics, which could be very impressive with city of domes.
Those of you interested in logan's run then the TV show is due out in April 2012. The TV shows has logan looking for sanctuary and being chase by the sandman. I love the car and different story lines. I would also recommend the tv series if you like the movie!!
I vividly remember going to see this brilliant film at seven or eight years of age and having been totally enamored with the overall theme. A few years later, I read "Logan's Run," "Logan's World" and "Logan's Search" by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, all of which not only served to further this brilliant story but turned it into an extraordinary Science Fiction trilogy!
Michael York, Richard Jordan and Jenny Agutter all perform superbly in this silver screen classic! Between the films overall success, the exceptional actors and the demand for a sequel, I'm quite surprised one never followed.
If one were to make the comparison between "Logan's Run" and other big budget, extraordinary Science Fiction films of the seventies, like "Star Wars™ you could definitely say that it holds its own quite well.
Imagine a future some two hundred years down the road where most of humanity has been wiped out leaving the remainder to build and live in domes with limited resources and the measures that would be taken to continue survival. That is the "basic" premise behind "Logan's Run." The more explicit premise is human nature at its need to expand beyond where it's at and its need to question everything.Read more ›
