* RuleOfSymbolism: In one perspective, Logan resisting the City's computer symbolizes an atheist resisting religious conversion to start accepting that an Afterlife does exist.

* ComicBookAdaptation: Three times; first with MarvelComics, not long after the film, second was Malibu Comics back in [[TheNineties 1990]], and in 2010 with Bluewater Productions' ''Logan's Run: Last Day'', which takes aspects from the original Marvel run.

* KickTheDog: When Logan and Francis are going after a runner early in the film, they have several chances where they easily could have killed him right away, but they sadistically treat killing him like a game of hunting an animal, deliberately missing him so they can have fun at the Runners expense.

A 1976 science fiction film, directed by Michael Anderson and based on the [[Literature/LogansRun novel of the same name]] by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, depicting a future where everyone is young and healthy, no-one needs to work, and people look forward to the chance for "renewal" (presumably some sort of rebirth or reincarnation) in the "Carrousel" at the age of 30, a privilege given to those who have obeyed the rules faithfully. However, there is a darker side to this apparent utopia: no-one has ever survived Carrousel. Resource management and population control are simply maintained by mandating the death of everyone who reaches the age of 30.

** The only reason Logan and Jessica survive is, since he is the first Sandman to run, he is the first to come through with a gun.

However, its age cap is set at 30 years, while the winnowing process is called "Carousel," and is touted as a "renewal" program. Logan 5 and Jennifer 6 attempt to escape, and discover how badly their idyllic city has GoneHorriblyWrong.
