Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A numbing combination of sloppy writing, vulgar art direction, high school acting, and bungled special effects."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Logan's Run is a vast, silly extravaganza that delivers a certain amount of fun, once it stops taking itself seriously."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Maybe its ambitions outpace its performance, but at least it tries."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Cautionary tale of a futuristic society bent on destroying all but its youngest citizens."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"In the future, it's gonna look a lot like the '70s."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Fundamentally, this is just further proof of Hollywood's untiring ability to reduce all science fiction to its most feeble stereotypes."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"... I found myself reflecting that sf writers can get away with a lot on the printed page that moviemakers just can't."
‑ Richard T. Jameson, Parallax View
"It's a good story with a well-defined sense of jeopardy, and appropriate performances by York and Agutter, but my most major problem is that too much is unexplained."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, LYTRules.com
"Sci-Fi, Super 70s Style! I love it."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, StaciWilson.com
"Logan's Run is not great filmmaking, but it's a nice sci-fi thriller with an interesting enough plot to keep it propelling along."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"Harmless fun enlivened by a couple of sequences that are as good as the entire film should have been."
‑ , New York Times
"Despite its grabber of a premise, Logan's Run flaunts poorly developed plot specifics; as such, it's terminally silly. Nevertheless, as a camp curio, it still has an odd but undeniable staying power. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"A hit-and-miss futuristic film about a world in which nobody is allowed to live past 30 years."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Pre-Star Wars sci-fi; the events of the next year rendered it obsolete with record speed although there's a little more than usual here to enjoy."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"If you can resist the urge to laugh, it's still a visually fascinating and provocatively entertaining film."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
