Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* PopulationControl: The population in the [[CrapsaccharineWorld seemingly utopian]] future world is maintained by executing everyone who reaches the age of thirty.

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.

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.

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.
