I saw this movie when I was a kid, as well as the series, and thought it was very cool. I just hope it stands the test of time, but I'm afraid this is going to appear like a very kitschy 70's film.

Fantastic!!! One of my absolute favourite pre-Star Wars era science fiction films! Seeing classic stuff like Logan's Run in HD is the kind of thing that makes me want to keep buying...

Its not gonna hold up. The Island is about the same concept and is much more "time friendly" than this will be. This has "Sci-Fi Cheddar" written all over it. Still glad to see its coming out, the more the better.

Kitschy 70's movie aounds about right.

Kitschy 70's movie sounds about right.
From what I remember, the costumes and hair styles are very 70's-esqe. You know the look, wispy clothing/hair, tye-dye random color patterns, bell bottom pants, men have feathered hair look, etc.

It's a disturbing/thought provoking movie. I liked it, even as a kid.

Sure, it's got some very 70s elements, but it's incredibly stylish and cool. And much as I like The Island (Probably Bay's best, as it actually has a plot) Logan's run kicks The Island to the ground in sheer coolness!!!

I mean, script alone... there's so many brilliant lines! "Run, Runner!" And who can't love the sheer sadistic joy by even the hero, at hunting down a runner... Or Peter Ustinov's turn as the old man. Oh, and Jerry Goldsmith's brilliantly weird and atmospheric soundtrack... Box... ("It's my job!")

And Jenny Agutter... damn...

"There issss noooooo sanctuuaarrrryyyy!"

Really can't wait for this. It's a film chock full interesting ideas and concepts, with really artistic direction, great characters... it basically fires on all levels (Despite hairdos being a bit dated) I really hope they do some retrospective interviews and stuff.

I watched the DVD not too long ago. It's not as good as I thought it was when I was a kid, but I still enjoyed it. I may pick this up if the price is right.
