Soylent Green (1973)
Soylent green is a classic sci-fi flick! It paints a dismal canvas of a doomed planet (Earth 2025). The Oceans are dying due to global warming, (this film was made before global warming actually started, which is very relevant) the population of the world has topped 16 billion and rising! The planet cannot feed its people through conventional means. Mass Starvation seems inevitable! Enter the Soylent Corporation and Soylent green!
Soylent Green is a wondrous new food source (It actually had taste) something which the other soylent products made mainly from plankton has not!
But what is soylent green?
Enter Thorn (Charlton Heston) a disillusioned police office in New York (population 25 million) who while investigating a routine murder stumbles upon the world darkest secret! Soylent Green is made from PEOPLE
This is a true Sci-fi classic!!
