My old VHS tape can now rest in peace, at last we have a widescreen DVD version of Logan's Run with remastered sound.
It's one of my favourite movies of all time. It has a great fast moving story, lots of beautiful people intent on living their alloted 30 years to the full but living alongside a darker underclass, the cubs, and an underground movement that helps "runners" try and find Sanctuary. The special effects are great and won a Special Achievement Award at the 1977 Oscar's and Jerry Goldsmith's music, a mix of orchestral and electronic is superb, I have the OST on vinyl' and to top all that off it has Jenny Agutter.
I agree that the effects do look dated now but bear in mind that at the time their use of lasers was ground breaking. I saw it when it first came out and have watched it countless times since and it has never lost its appeal to me.
On the extras front the commentary by Michael York (Logan), director Michael Anderson and Bill Thomas the costume designer is very informative, the costumes played an important role in portraying a society where pleasure appears to be the sole purpose. The featurette on the making of the movie has a quite grainy quality to it but still gives a reasonable deal of information and is a nice addition.
Now how about someone releasing the Logan's Run TV series with Heather Menzies?

.
Many aspects of Nolan and Johnson's brilliant novel were significantly altered for the blockbuster film. You have Michael York's Logan 5 (not Logan 3) hero and his Sandman comrade, Francis (Richard Jordan) - who became a persistent enemy and Agent of the State instead of a secret aide to the Runners - as in the book. Also, the Sleep Shops (very reminiscent Soylent Green) were replaced with the strange but impressive public spectacle of Carousel, a festival in which those aged thirty (not twenty-one) would be blown up before the eyes of excited crowds who believed that the doomed were actually being "renewed" (reincarnated).

Instead of aging the film and thus interpreting it not relevant by 2014, the disco-era visualization of Logan's Run - the atmosphere of hedonism and consumerism continue to ably support the instructive narrative. The film is glittering, sexy abundantly rich in neon and mini-skirts - which originally helped to define the City of Domes culture in terms of a styled self-centeredness. However, in the 21st century and the narcissistic - driven Age of the likes of certain forms of social media and Facebook this then looks rather antiquated by comparison. Therefore in 2014 viewers can still easily and directly identify the City of Dome dwellers as a proxy for "for us".

The general setting from the book to the movie changed. In Logan's Run, the movie, a nuclear war rather than a "Little War" hastened the construction of the City of Domes, meaning that the world outside the City was almost entirely destroyed/contaminated -post-apocalyptic rather than merely futuristic. There is no old Man (Peter Ustinov) character in the novel. The juxtaposition here is that with age there might come wisdom?

This Blu-ray is a US import. It is region-free. The extras are standard definition, from what I can tell, but also play fine in the UK.

The picture transfer is quite good. It's variable throughout but the colours are vibrant and there's some good sharpness here and there. In fact, you can tell the opening shots are models more so than before - and can spot some of the special features (like during the Carousel) with actors on wires. As has been said in other reviews, the sets themselves are quite plain which hampers the overall effect a bit. The overall effect is solid and faithful rather than outstanding.

The sound is quite good - although there's a lot of directionality applied to the voices (if someone's speaking from one side, the sound follows them rather heavily). This does not affect things too badly, but is noticeably.

The film itself is a classic. I must say it drags a little bit towards the end upon repeat viewings though. Still well worth seeing and a good one for the collection.

Lastly, there's a nice period documentary about the film. It's a bit OTT but informative and amusing nonetheless. There's also a commentary track - with lead actor, Michael York. I've not had time to listen to it yet but it's good to know it's there for future viewings.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 15 April 2011
Format: DVD
Life clocks are a lie! Carousel is a lie! THERE IS NO RENEWAL!

In the year 2274, Earths citizens live in a contended state. However, to keep the populace balanced, all citizens are sentenced to death upon reaching 30. Naturally not all citizens are thrilled by the idea and take too making a run for it. Enter the Sandmen, chosen specialists trained to hunt escapees down. When Sandman Logan 5 is sent on a mission by his computer superiors to find the place that runners head for, known only as Sanctuary, he finds that his existence and that of everybody else is not as they would believe.

Based on the novel written by William F. Nolan, Logan's Run is a fine science-fiction premise not really given particularly great treatment by its makers. Quintessentially a 70s picture, the future vision thrown up by director Michael Anderson looks like, well, the 1970s. A shame because it has bags of guts and the cast, in spite of the creakiness that surrounds them, give it gusto supreme. Michael York and Jenny Agutter are the two main protagonists on the futuristic lam, encountering various obstacles and life changing discoveries, both are likable and engaging as hero and heroine respectively.

The premise sees a world where suicide is enforced, nicely given a barmy religious overtone, while also showing a mean humanity streak as the other citizens watch for glorious entertainment. Bonkers really, but some religions are just that, but lets not go there eh? There is also the theme of ageism and warnings about not letting technology get too commanding of the human way of life. It's all great source stuff from which to launch a truly inspiring dystopian picture, but Anderson and his back-room team fail to insert a darkness in the material.
