2.0 out of 5 stars soylent green, 9 April 2009
By 
This review is from: Soylent Green [DVD] [1973] (DVD)
Heston's ambiguous character and deeds are one of the saving graces of this film. I love dystopian themes and this film deals with them in an emotionless way, reflecting the main character's acceptance of all the things that we would find abhorrent. Similar to "Omega man" in its over use of 70's clothing and decor, requiring the viewer to work in order to suspend their disbelief long enough to engage with the story is one of its main failings. In the 70's this may well have been an interesting take on the future but now it seems poorly imagined. Many of the social and political points made by this film are interesting but it does not stand up to its sci-fi peers, bearing in mind that THX1138 was made before and Rollerball only two years later.
