Uneven and slightly muddled futuristic horror story -- not really science fiction, more like an antipollution PSA gone berserk. Full Review

It seems, for all its futuristic malarkey, as contrived and antiquated a melodrama as may be seen any night on the Late Show. Full Review

Good, solid stuff, assembled efficiently enough to be pretty persuasive. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The film was a typical seventies sci-fi effort, scientifically illiterate and unimaginatively composed.

The somewhat plausible and proximate horrors in the story of Soylent Green carry the production over its awkward spots to the status of a good futuristic exploitation film. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Their 21st-century New York occasionally is frightening but it is rarely convincingly real. Full Review

...SOYLENT stands up remarkably well, largely due to Richard Fleishcer's suitably stark direction...

Product Description:

21st century New York City is (still) an overpopulated mess, and the only food left is Soylent Green, a soybean and lentil concoction with an extra-special, government-mandated ingredient. As police detective Thorn (Charlton Heston) investigates a murder, he learns of a conspiracy with bizarre implications. This Edward G. Robinson's final movie, as the star died not long after filming his final scene. Based on Harry Harrison's "Make Room! Make Room!"

Plot Synopsis:

A nightmarish vision of the future set in New York City circa the year 2022. The population has swelled to 40 million and the environment is so ravaged by pollution that a synthetic food known as Soylent Green is the only kind available. When the director of the giant corporation that manufactures this food supply is murdered, the detective investigating the case gradually discovers the horrifying truth about Soylent Green's secret ingredient.
