Silent Running looks surprisingly good for 1972. The sets are excellent and really sell the idea that you're on a giant space freighter. I think the premise of the film is a worthy one. Bruce Dern's character, Freeman Lowell, is a little shrill and preachy at times but you can't fault him for being passionate about the mission of maintaining the last remaining nature preserves.

I'm truly annoyed by the Joan Baez songs that keep popping up, which seem unsuitable for a sci-fi movie. It's clear what they were saying artistically but it's a total mood killer for me. The music alone brings the movie down by at LEAST one star but the ample special features on this Blu-ray release offer a counteractive boost to the product rating.

This movie is quite sad, and in some way may be actually predicting our future. The coldheartedness of man is shown off in every form, even in the good guy, but appears justified. The little robots in this film will appeal to everyone, I think, for their simulated humanity and clumsy ways, much like children. I've seen it several times, and probably watch it every year. A good experience for the "greener" in all of us!

This is a classic cult film that is now so real to life it's scary. I compare it to Dick Tracy's video phone. Who would have dreamed about a smart phone for real back then?? It always makes me sad to see this film as I believe we are headed for this reality.

I first saw this on late-night television in the early 70's, and it has remained one of my favourite movies of all time. In addition to "2001: A Space Odyssey", I believe that it is one of the best space movies ever made. Like "2001", the special effects (models in those days) still hold up very well, amazing considering the budget. Even "Star Wars" with a much higher budget looks no better. Many reviews point out their dislike for the pace of the film, the music, or the 'hippie' message. If anything, I thought these to be strengths, and very relevant today. 35 years after the making of this movie, we are finally starting to truly be concerned about our Earth's ability to survive, even more than the green revolution of the 70's, and I have continued to re-play this movie regularly for its ultimately positive message, despite a typical 70's downer story and ending.

By G. Edmonson TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 24 2015
Format: Blu-ray
"Silent Running" (1972) was directed by Douglas Trumbull who was the special effects supervisor on "2001: A Space Odyssey". The film is about a group of workers on board a space craft which contains the last specimens of plant life from Earth. Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern) is one of the caretakers of the forests located in the greenhouse-like geodesic domes. When the message comes across that they are to to destroy the greenhouses and return the freighters to commercial service Freeman turns on his fellow workers who are detonating the greenhouses. Lowell escapes with one freighter and a greenhouse into outer space with his only companions being three maintenance robots. Lowell gradually descends into insanity as the freighter drifts out into space. This ecologically minded film was made on a shoestring budget of one million dollars but looks surprisingly accomplished with most of the filming taking place on board an old aircraft carrier.

The blu-ray looks fine though there are numerous specks of dust throughout that haven't been cleaned up. Special features include a 49 minute making of featurette, a conversation with Bruce Dern, and a couple of Douglas Trumbull vignettes about Silent Running and his time in the film industry.

On an overtechnologized and defoliated Earth of the future, the ecosystem has been carelessly destroyed by humans and the only remaining wilderness environs are grudgingly looked after by astronauts on massive domed spaceships. The vitamins, minerals, and such required to sustain human life can be easily synthesized in laboratories, so the folks on Earth are becoming increasingly apathetic about the need to sustain the circumgyrating greenhouses. When the inevitable order to scrap the project and destroy the orbiting flora and fauna finally comes through, Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern), the only astronaut in the project who truly cares about the plants and animals, violently rebels and places upon himself the responsibility of protecting the last vestiges of Earth's non-human life. But just how far will he go to ensure that he's successful in his self-imposed calling?
1972's SILENT RUNNING marks the directorial debut of FX wizard Douglas Trumbull, probably best known for his FX work on Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi epic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Though the skeleton was given flesh by writers Deric Washburn , Michael Cimino, and Steven Bochco, the underlying structure of the plot is Trumbull's. In light of his work with Kubrick, it is interesting that Trumbull would come up with an idea such as that for SILENT RUNNING, as it makes it seem as if he felt that the only way he could demonstrate that he is more than just an FX man was to create a film that is the thematic opposite of the one featuring his best known FX work.
