Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Soylent Green is people!"
Rating: 2/4 -- Not well thought-out and a genuine disappointment for all its visibility in the popular conversation Full Review
Film Freak Central
Rating: 2/5 -- The film was a typical seventies sci-fi effort, scientifically illiterate and unimaginatively composed.
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
Gannett News Service
Good, solid stuff, assembled efficiently enough to be pretty persuasive. Full Review
Where so many science fiction visions of the era have dated, this gritty creation of a depressed (and depressing) future... looks all the more real. Full Review
...SOYLENT stands up remarkably well, largely due to Richard Fleishcer's suitably stark direction...
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
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!"
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.
