Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A visually stunning sci-fi spectacle May 18 2003
Format:DVD
I have fond memories of seeing "Logan's Run" in the theaters many years ago, and am delighted to see this film getting a fine presentation on DVD. Directed by Michael Anderson, the film takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where humans live a hedonistic life in the shelter of a domed city. There's just one catch to this pleasure-oriented utopia: nobody is permitted to live past the age of 30. The title character, played by Michael York, is a Sandman: an elite policeman assigned to kill those who flee the birthday death sentence. But a surprising assignment takes Logan on a voyage that will change him profoundly.
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Logan's Run: Pride of the 70's Oct. 16 2001
Format:DVD
When I watched this as a youth back in 1980 or so, I really thought I must be the only one weird enough to not only like it but love it. Since then, I've seen it lots of times. Now the DVD has made it even better, with a very nice anamorphic transfer, and a very imaginative re-mastering of the sound into 5.1 surround. The whole job done on the DVD is first-rate, including snappy, subtle menus (none of that expensive, interminable Star Wars etc. tripe!).
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.

Format:DVD
Of the many great Science Fiction movies that were released in the seventies, "Logan's Run" can definitely be counted as being among the best of them. There have been so many Science Fiction movies and novels over the years that depict either a bright or a not so bright future for humanity and many of them could've been cut right from a "cookie cutter," being the same tired story over and over yet "Logan's Run" stands out as being brilliantly different from the rest.
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.
The premise:
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Run, Run, Run And Get This! May 31 2002
Format:DVD
I saw this movie in its original theatrical release. I was 10 years old. I was stunned, amazed, entranced, shocked, excited and thrilled by the colors, lights and sounds.
For the next 5 years I was Logan and all my friends were Sandmen.This movie is Michael Anderson (the Director)at his best. An extremely inventive and innovative film for its time. This movie has a great story, great perfomrnaces and great sets and props. Even the model city is stunning. (Built on a 25 foot by 35 foot table top on the stages of MGM.
Colorful and almost magical. It was the very first "Special Acadamy Award" for Special Effects and diservedly so! Michael York and Jenny Augutter are wonderful and the late Richard Jorden was the perfect villan.
The best performace is the "Old Man" played by Peter Ustinov. Rosce Lee Brown plays the predesor to C-3PO and Lt, Cmdr. Data. The costumes are simple but unique.
This is a must to own.. The DVD commentary is fantastic! And for me, it brought back a lot of memories!
