      Movie Info

      In the year 2274, young residents enjoy an idyllic, hedonistic lifestyle within the protective confines of a domed city. The general belief is that when each person turns 30, they are reincarnated for another blissful life cycle. Those who know the much darker truth become "runners" and flee to a hidden sanctuary. When law enforcement officer Logan (Michael York) goes undercover to locate the refuge, he winds up instead trying to initiate a revolution with runner Jessica (Jenny Agutter).

        I think that the movie works because of the design elements, not in spite of them (for one thing, having a hedonistic society where no one is allowed to live past 30 exist entirely in an ugly shopping mall works a little too well). Also its well cast and has the right blend of pessimism and hope.

        Strong concept and colorful, creative set design keep 'Logan's Run' holding up well past 30. I have a thing for miniatures (blame Weta Workshop) and this hits the spot. 'Logan' combines miniatures, matte paintings, and holograms of the time to great effect, all of which are guided by some impressive art direction. There's a mixed bag of pros and cons - eye-catching spectacle, borderline stiff performances, groovy costumes (Michael York's evening robe though!), discussion-prompting ecological themes, curious third-act pacing - but 'Logan's juicy influence is clear on some of the best contemporary sci-fi flicks.

        Between 3 and 3.5. I barely give it 3.5, just for originality.

        Logan's Run is a great bad movie. What makes it great is the genuine energy and seriousness put into it. As sci-fi, it is not even terrible, but rather is fun as far as the concepts go. The youthful earnestness (typical of that era, like Luke in Star Wars) of the lead actors is a refreshing change from typical posturing one expects, and it adds to the fun/silly vibe. Perhaps four stars is generous, but I enjoyed it; just the type of flick to put on when you have a few random hours to kill late at night.
