Soylent Green

In the year 2022 food is scarce but people need to eat.  Science fiction paired with an organic, plant-based meal (high-energy plankton?) and a draft beer.

"Lively futuristic yarn with a splendid climax." - Halliwell's Film Guide

"Like Rollerball it’s exciting to see a future that looks so much like the '70s." - Sean Sweeney,

"Soylent Green is not only better than I remembered, it's actually a good movie." - Casey McCabe, Movie Magazine International

Soylent Green is landmark screen science-fiction, a riveting entertainment and a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster.  Working well again in the futuristic genre following Planet of the Apes and The Omega Man, action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022.  He's trailing a murderer - and the trail leads to a stunning discovery.  Vividly realized, Soylent Green's world gains its power not just from its special effects but from its heart - a human dimension magnified by the performance of legendary Edward G. Robinson in his moving screen farewell.
