* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: That Soylent Green is people is generally known -- and that knowledge brings some folk to the film. The big reveal ain't gonna work for them, but watching the various characters slowly learn the secret is a very interesting and emotional journey in its own right. Also less known is [[spoiler: that the world's oceans have been utterly exhausted]].

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The nature of Soylent Green is certainly ghoulish, but it is ''literally'' the only resource left; the populace has a MortonsFork of either cannibalism or mass starvation.

** ''Soylent Green'' is very similar to its contemporary ''Manga/TheDriftingClassroom'', which featured very similar themes. It came out in 1972's Japan and proposed that humanity would drive itself into extinction through pollution and overpopulation before the year 2000, destroying the environment in the process. Both works have valid concerns, that overpopulation and pollution are huge problems, but neither issue went in the direction they predicted.

** The scoops. Imagine Trash Trucks converted with Bulldozers designed to scoop up the rioting populace. On the outside, it seems like an important safety feature. However, after the twist ending was revealed, it seemed that Thorn's prediction of the people being used as cattle came true.

** People are eating Soylent Green, right? Then they die, and their bodies are processed into Soylent Green, eaten by people who die and are processed... *shudders* if you weren't horrified before, this Fridge Horror is the time to start.
