While the movie was successful for its time, and is often mentioned in the same breath as other classic, dystopian, late-60's to pre-''Star Wars'' sci-fi films like ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes'', ''Film/SoylentGreen'', and ''Film/SilentRunning'', it bears very little resemblance to its source material.

A 1976 science fiction film, film 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.

Logan 5 is a 26-year-old Sandman whose job it is to hunt down and kill "Runners" -- those who reach 30 but don't report for Carrousel. When he learns that the Runners are trying to reach a place called Sanctuary outside the domed city, he is assigned to find this place and destroy it. In order to do this, he will masquerade as a Runner. His life-clock is adjusted accordingly -- with no assurance that he'll get his 4 lost years back -- and he finds himself pursued by his fellow Sandmen as he searches for the truth behind Sanctuary.

->Sometime in the 23rd century... the survivors of war, overpopulation and pollution are living in a great domed city, sealed away from the forgotten world outside. Here, in an ecologically balanced world, mankind lives only for pleasure, freed by the servo-mechanisms which provide everything. There's just one catch: Life must end at thirty unless reborn in the fiery ritual of Carrousel.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. Aside from the glaring lack of black dudes everywhere else, there is one:[[spoiler: Box, portrayed by Roscoe Lee Brown]] and he is actually one of the last on-screen fatalities.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The city's central computer implemented its own destruction. Had it not instructed Logan to go undercover as a runner to find and destroy Sanctuary, life would have continued following the established status quo.
