Reviews


83
The A.V. Club - Keith Phipps
Though the mystery has been spoiled somewhat by an over-revealed twist ending, Soylent Green still succeeds thanks to director Richard Fleischer's sure command of one of the grimmest and most sadly plausible dystopias put to film.
80
Empire - Ian Nathan
A resonant film which has a speudo-cult status as everyone has seen it late one night on TV and it's never left them.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
Conjures up a terrifying vision of the future that is made all the more urgent by today's inflationary food prices and fast approaching energy crisis.
80
Time Out - Unnamed
Good, solid stuff, assembled efficiently enough to be pretty persuasive.
75
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
A good, solid science-fiction movie, and a little more.
