fantasy out of the past
the main characters were very interesting, tho this is an old movie the picture was still sharp. the special segment after the movie was about Edward G. Robinson, as an older person myself I found it entertaining.

Set in a polluted, congested New York City in 2022, this sci-fi
thriller stars Charlton Heston as Robert Thorn, a police detective
looking into the murder of a corporate executive (Joseph Cotton)
whose company makes a nutrious synthetic food called Soylent Green.
But in the process of tracking down the killer of the executive,
Thorn unearths shocking information about the product's ingredients.
The cast also includes Edward G. Robinson (in his last film role)
as a researcher that works with Thorn - who remembers the good days
of earth and New York City-when food was real, and people were not
crammed into spaces. Leigh-Taylor Young (Secret Admirer, Jagged Edge,
Dallas Season 11, etc) co-stars as the girlfriend of the murdered
executive. The director here is Richard Fleicher, (Tora, Tora, Tora,
Conan the Destroyer, Red Soyna, Mr. Majestyk, etc) who has shown his
durability by the many genres of movies he has worked on-and the fact
that an notable percentage of them have been box-office hits. This is
a great classic sci-fi thriller movie that most people will enjoy and
it will give a good evenings entertainment to those that like the sci
fi class of flixs. Definitely recommended if you like this type of movie.Read full review

THE Classic... they still haven't made a better sci-fi movie on the problem of overpopulation since this one!
Charlton Heston in a stand-out role, altho it was parodied from 'Mad' Magazine to TV shows when it first came out!
Recommended viewing, at least as a rental!

Great customer service & handleing.
I have been looking for this movie for a long time. I found it here on eBay, still new in the package. I will continue to use eBay for those hard to find movies.
