Continuity mistake: When Thorn goes back to Simonson's apartment to see Shirl, he interrupts a party. Shirl is holding a drink which contains huge ice cubes, but right after the two of them go into the bedroom the ice is no longer in the drink. Way too fast to have melted.
Thorn figures out the truth that "Soylent Green is made out of people." He makes the police chief agree to tell everyone. The film ends here without knowing whether or not Thorn himself ends up as "soylent green" or whether or not the police chief keeps his word and tells anyone what Thorn has said. The last thing we see is the indigent people carrying Thorn out on a stretcher after being shot in the leg by one of the bad guys.
Hatcher: So, you finally made it. Do you know what time it is?
Det. Thorn: You tell me. You're the only one here who has a wristwatch.
Hatcher: I can't. The damn thing won't run.
