3.0 out of 5 stars Runs on too long, 7 Aug 2012
This review is from: Logan's Run [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
On its cinematic release in early 1976 The New York Times described this movie as 'a vast, silly extravaganza', and that about sums it up for me. Not since 1968's Barbarella (1968) [Blu-ray][Region Free] has a Science Fiction film coupled gratuitous nudity with bizarre landscapes and frankly risible dialogue: "That sweet madman, how could he ever exist?" - just one example. Michael York and Jenny Agutter make reasonable leads, and Peter Ustinov makes a welcome appearance late in the film, however the screenplay lacks direction, and the film starts to meander to a frustrating degree around the halfway mark, suggesting the editors were having a day off.
Obviously, the film's SFX (award-winning in their day), have long been eclipsed, but George Lucas' epic fantasy Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI) [Blu-ray] [1977] was made at the same time and is far superior both visually and structurally.
