Product Details


Product Description

Soylent Green is landmark screen science-fiction, a riveting entertainment and a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster. Working well again in the futuristic genre following Planet of the Apes and The Omega Man, action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022. He's trailing a murderer - and the trail leads to a stunning discovery. Vividly realized, Soylent Green's world gains its power not just from its special effects but from its heart - a human dimension magnified by the performance of legendary Edward G. Robinson in his moving screen farewell.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nightmare every time closer May 30 2004
Format:DVD
In 2022 the population's growth may reach eight billions people So the awful warning call given by Aldous Huxley ( A new visit for a brave new world) , George Orwell (Animal's farm or 1984) will suppose several restrictions about the free circulation vehicles and also an estimated amount of liters of water by each one of us.
This film is a very clever scifi story about a overcrowded world, where the reduced free spaces of the world we know actually , may be more narrow.
The story holds a deep reflection about the effects of a claustrophobic world, the lack of certain benefits you assumed almost naturally till now.
This movie shows us about a reality not so far. This work was the last appearance of Edward G. Robinson; thanks to Heston efforts for including him in that role. The last sequence in which you watch the ancient world like it was; it depicts a bucolic landscape; and the Pastoral Symphony works out perfectly with this goal. You may feel it something tearful, but the remarkable point is the hidden message. Still we are on time to avoid it. But who'll take this dangerous flag?
This film was released just one year after since Roma's club establihment, in 1972. In that age I had the opportunity of reading that fundamental work of Barry Commoner titled The circle that it closes.Watch for this one. Because with these raising reflections about the enviroment concern around the world made it possible, by instance, avoid to throw several hazardous weapons over Vietnam, whose direct and collateral effects had not studied enough. Chernobyl was just only fourteen years before and Long island twelve years.

5.0 out of 5 stars The price of strawberries in the year 2022 May 30 2008
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is one of those bleak future movies where there is a finite amount of resources and an unbalanced distribution of them. The one good point is that food processing as been perfected to the point that we get tasty blocs of colored nutrients. The best one, publicized as being made from plankton Soylent Green.

Detective Robert Thorn (Charlton Heston) is tasked with investigating a homicide in a ritzy section of town. During the investigation he, with the help of his friend Sol Roth (Edward G. Robinson,) discovers a dirty little secret.

Shocking for the time of the movie release. Nowadays we would take it in our stride. Still worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pray we never come to this May 11 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film was made in 1973 but set in the year 2022 which is not so far away now that we are in 2014. Food prices are already skyrocketing beyond the average persons ability to afford, as well as the price of gasoline to fuel our cars. Food banks are always busy these days because so many people cannot make ends meet and feed their families. It is happening all over the world with poor economies of so many places. Soylent green is revealed in the end to be a form of cannibalism once people die. According to the film some people just give up and go to places to do just that and afterwards the body becomes food for the masses. Frightening;
a scary prospect and I hope nothing like this will ever happen for real. Great acting in the film by both Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson (his last film BTW).

5.0 out of 5 stars An Oldie, but a Goodie May 25 2013
By Cheryl Jones-large TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed this movie over and over for years. The story is a bit slow at times, and the acting isn't always first class, but the message and the way it is delivered are excellent. I have used this in both Science and Social Justice classes with great success. Students are always appalled by the ending, which I won't give away for those who don't know what the big surprise is. What really amazes me about this story is that it seems to be coming true.
Too bad we can't learn from these very wise fictional predictions and change our world before it becomes what we see on the screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soylent Green is ..... May 22 2011
By JT TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this movie. Being a big fan of Logan's Run and Rollerball, I like my 70's sci-fi. This is a very grim look at the future. You can tell that it is dated and probably this was the mentality people had of the future in the 70's. Some of these special effects (in fact most) look cheesy and weak by today's standards, but I think that a lack of special effects somehow put more emphasis on the story and character development. It was nice to see Chuck Heston and Edward G. Robinson together. They worked well together in the ten commandments. At times, I get in the mood to watch some old sci-fi, and this with the Omega Man makes a good double feature.
