Logan’s Run (1976)


STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC –
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) High production value and grand set designs.
2) The intriguing primary concept of a post-apocalyptic dystopian colony run by computers.
3) Michael Bay’s The Island (2005) borrowed heavily from this film.
4) Box, the robot. This fusion of C-3PO & R2-D2 is no cute android.
5) Jenny Agutter as Jessica 6 – one breathtaking femme fatale.

 

CONS –
1) Disappointingly trashy CGI for a 1976 movie.
2) For what purpose the computers were breeding humans in 2274 AD? What caused the apocalypse? Some questions are never answered.

Box: Fish, plankton, sea greens… protein from the sea!
