For a movie that was made 24 Years ago , it doesn't age.,
This review is from: Logan's Run [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Pos-Apocolyptic thriller.Superb Film, brought back memories of the TV series on BBC (Which I can't find video's or dvd's of anywhere).
The story set in the future where once you hit age 30 it's time for the Carosel (sic) - Renewal is promised but only electrocution awaits. Based on this concept some people take offence and decide to "Run". Enter the Sandman (No metallica pun intended ;-) ) who's job it is to track down and eliminate the runners. A story then surfaces about "Santuary" where all may live until old age and natural death. York , converted into somewhat of a spy by the powers that be, has to infiltrate those who support and provide help to the runners, effectively becoming a runner himself.
York is in outstanding form as the Sandman turned Runner. Agutter is ample as his fellow runner. The special effects while obviously dated are not cheesy and one is not offended by them.
In the end this was a very tidy film, way ahead of it's time and still very enjoyable to watch to this day. Now if only I could get my hands on the videos of the origional TV series :-((

Comment on original review by firstname.lastname@example.org: Actually, in the UK, the tv series of Logan's Run was shown on ITV not the BBC. It was shown in 1978 and never repeated in the UK until a couple of years ago on the Sci-Fi Channel on SKY. If ever there was a series long overdue for an official appearance on DVD, it is this (and "The Fantastic Journey")!
