Except the idea that women can be sold and used like furniture (it seems men couldnīt -and canīt- imagine a future where women are not sex object), the plot of the movie is great. And kind of creepy.

I was kinda tipped about the ending, so I have a sorta biased opinion about the whole movie. But really, the best part of the movie was Edward G. Robinson's death scene. That was pretty good. The rest of the movie was kinda forgettable.

Not that good of a movie. There were some really interesting scenes but I wouldn't call it good. The front loaders and the ending are very well done. But, the overall concept of the film is lacking. Only true sci lovers will like it.

"Soylent Green" by Yojimbo

In a near future where the world is vastly over-populated and nature's resources have become decimated, a cop investigating the murder of a rich executive uncovers his globe-spanning uber-corporation's dirty little secret. Soylent Green is clearly a victim of its own reputation as its almost inevitable that you will already know how it ends, which removes the shocking revelation that would have provided the punchline to the story. As it stands, the film is surprisingly accurate in its predictions and is one of the first corporate conspiracy theory stories to reach the big screen; it is also one of the first to marry the styles of Film Noir and science fiction. The problems lie in its rather dated and cheap looking visual effects and rather workmanlike, TV quality direction. I would also h...
