Trivia:
Many of the "Ruined Washington DC" scenes of buildings other than landmarks were filmed on the decrepit MGM Backlot. Prominent among them is the exterior from fictional "Tait College" from the 1947 MGM Movie "Good News", also seen in 1974's "That's Entertainment".See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: There is a shot looking down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial showing Logan and Jessica climbing the steps. At the right is a column which has been composited into the shot. Less than two minutes later they are shown climbing the steps of the Capitol building. The cut in Logan's shirt has reversed sides because this is a flopped repeat of the earlier shot but without the column.See more »

Dated, a bit silly, but still fun, 23 May 2004
Author: David from Canada

I was twelve when Logan's Run came out and I thought that it was the best thing since sliced bread. It blew me away. So when I picked it up recently on DVD and watched it for the first time in twenty-eight years I was wondering how it would fare after all this time.

Well, not too badly. Many of the IMDb reviewers of Logan's Run hit the nail on the head when they say that this film is definitely a product of its time. Yes, the special effects are sort of laughable now (the teeny tiny maze cars zipping through the a model of the city that looks about six inches tall), but you have to judge those sorts of things in the context of the time they were made. As strange as it may seem to people who now expect Lord of the Rings-quality special effects, Logan's Run was cutting edge in its day. And a few of the special effects still stand up fairly well. The light envelope that comes down over the Carousel or the matte shots of Washington. Not great for twenty-first century film-making, but a minor miracle for 1976.

The story has more holes than a piece of swiss cheese and the acting is a bit touch and go, but that doesn't get in the way of a fairly entertaining movie. Seeing the movie all these years later I suppose the few moments of bad acting hit me more than anything else. As a kid I thought that Peter Ustinov's old man was brilliant, but now it just seems like awkward overacting. Which isn't to say that his character isn't somewhat endearing.

Michael York, a really wonderful actor, misses the mark a few times, but generally he and Jenny Agutter do a fine job.

Listen, this isn't a brilliant movie, but it does have its moments. Most science fiction movies made in the 1970s haven't endured the test of time especially well. With the purple mascara, pastel-coloured costumes and hair feathered like a great phoenix. But all in all I still found Logan's Run to be an entertaining and enjoyable trip back to the strange world of 1976.
