Soylent Green is landmark screen science-fiction, a riveting entertainment and a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster. Working well again in the futuristic genre following Planet of the Apes and The Omega Man, action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022. He’s trailing a murderer – and the trail leads to a stunning discovery. Vividly realized, Soylent Green's world gains its power not just from its special effects but from its heart – a human dimension magnified by the performance of legendary Edward G. Robinson in his moving screen farewell.
.Not bad. I was told to watch it, as I understand it was a bit of a cult classic, and other movies like Cloud Atlas reference it.Published 1 day ago by Chris

|Differences btwn 2003 & 2007 versions of "Soylent Green"?||
Amen, brother (or sister). And now it looks like there's a 2008 one! Or is there? Cover looks the same, but Amazon has it listed in addition to this one. Talk about a terrible way to organize this stuff.

Wait and see. Amazon is frequently wrong on details like that. Classic b&w films are listed as color, aspect ratios are listed incorrectly, etc.
Don't worry about it -- I'm sure it will be presented in it's original format.
