In the 23rd century, humans forsake the ravaged outer environment by living in a vast, bubbled metropolis. There, computerized servo-mechanisms provide all needs and everyone can pursue endless hedonism. Endless, that is, until Lastday. That's when anyone who's 30 must submit to Carrousel, a soaring, spinning trip to eternity and supposed rebirth. Logan 5, a Sandman authorized to terminate Runners fleeing Carrousel, decides to become a Runner himself once he finds out the horrible truth about Lastday.

Reviews & Summaries
Both films explore dystopian systems designed to address the social burden of old age. A totalitarian central computer controls a socialist society through an elite police force in "Logan's Run"; while "In Time" explores a capitalist oligarchy in which anyone can stay young indefinetly, if they are wealthy enough. However, not everyone can be immortal- where would you put them all?
The costumes and sets of Logan's Run are like Buck Rodgers reimagined as soft porn; while "In Time" finds some of its gritty sexiness in hyper-hybrid reimaginings of classic cars from the 1960's.
