Review

Our Score
Michael York and Jenny Agutter star in this tale adapted by David Zelag Goodman from the novel by William F Nolan and George Clayton Johnson that earnestly depicts a society that dooms those over the age of 30 to the myth of "renewal". Making this 20 years after his Around the World in 80 Days, director Michael Anderson takes almost as long to make his point here, but puts on a real spurt when the runners head for the outside. Dale Hennesy and Robert De Vestel's imaginative designs were Oscar-nominated and provide some compensation for the rather cumbersome plot.

Summary

In a hedonistic futuristic city, euthanasia is compulsory for everyone over 30. A law enforcer whose job is to kill anyone who tries to escape is given the task of exposing an underground movement. To do so, his body clock is fast-forwarded, giving him a taste of life on the run. Sci-fi thriller, starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Farrah Fawcett and Peter Ustinov.
