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?

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.

More inspired than based on the novel of the same name by William F Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, if you have read the book before but not seen the film (although I think it is more likely to be the other way round) there are some noticeable differences, which I won’t go into except the main one which will instantly be recognised. In the novel the life of the inhabitants is curtailed when they reach 21, however here in the film it is on age 30 that this happens.

Logan is a Sandman whose job it is is to make sure no one manages to escape death when they reach 30, but he is given a mission by the super-computer that runs the whole cityscape to locate Sanctuary, a place it is believed people can escape to if they manage to evade the Sandmen. But where is Sanctuary, and does it even really exist?

With the help of Jessica, Logan sets out to find the truth, but whether there is a real Sanctuary or not, will Logan complete his mission, or will other desires and motivations emerge? With a supposed utopia in the place where every person lives, is this really so or in fact a dystopia where after all you are only given a set life expectancy, although those years are spent in idle and hedonistic pleasure instead of hard work and graft.

There are some really good special effects, some of them cutting edge at the time, and the visual display such as the city, and the world created outside is really wonderful to behold. The musical score to this is slightly dated now with regards to the music in the city which has some electronic music added to it, and some of the lighting effects, such as in the pleasure area also show their age, but then for when this was made these are what you would expect.

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 :-((
