If you can stifle the urge to laugh at its pastel unisex costumes and futuristic shopping-mall décor, this extravagant science fiction film from 1976 is still visually fascinating and provocatively entertaining. Set in the year 2274, when ecological disaster has driven civilization to the protection of domed cities, the story revolves around a society that holds a ceremonial death ritual for all citizens who reach the age of 30. In a diseaseless city where free sex is encouraged and old age is virtually unknown, Logan (Michael York) is a "sandman," one who enforces this radical method of population control (but he's about to turn 30 and he doesn't want to die). Escaping from the domed city via a network of underground passages, Logan is joined by another "runner" named Jessica (Jenny Agutter), while his former sandman partner (Richard Jordan) is determined to terminate Logan's rebellion. Using a variety of splendid matte paintings and miniatures, Logan's Run earned a special Oscar for visual effects (images of a long-abandoned Washington, D.C., are particularly impressive), and in addition to fine performances by Jordan and Peter Ustinov, the film features '70s poster babe Farrah Fawcett in a cheesy supporting role. Jerry Goldsmith's semi-electronic score is still one of the prolific composer's best, and Logan's Run remains an interesting example of '70s sci-fi that preceded Star Wars by less than a year. --Jeff Shannon

|Help! Looking for old Sci-Fi movie from the 60s||
Ever see "Planet of the Vampires"? I remember seeing both versions of the Time Travelers but Planet of the Vampires has stuck with me for a very long time too(and it's easier to come by on DVD)!
Of course I had nighmares of repeating history like in the Time Travelers...

|Does Anybody Know Anything About This Release?||
I'm not sure, but I think the original Warner release of Logan's Run was the old style snap case (cardboard with some plastic) and this is just a reissue of that release in the now standard plastic clamshell case (what almost all DVDs come in now). Warner has been slowly doing thse reissues over... Read More
