The Synopsis for The Running Man (1987) 720p

In the year 2017, the world economy has collapsed. The great freedoms of the United States are no longer, as the once great nation has sealed off its borders and become a militarized police state, censoring all film, art, literature, and communications. Even so, a small resistance force led by two revolutionaries manages to fight the oppression. With full control over the media, the government attempts to quell the nation's yearning for freedom by broadcasting a number of game shows on which convicted criminals fight for their lives. The most popular and sadistic of these programs is "The Running Man," hosted by Damon Killian. When a peaceful protest of starving citizens gathers in Bakersfield, California, a police officer named Ben Richards is ordered to fire on the crowd, which he refuses to do. Subdued by the other officers, the attack is carried out, and Richards is framed for the murder of almost a hundred unarmed civilians. Following a daring jail break months later, Richards is...

Released just as Arnold Schwarzenegger was achieving megastar status, thisfilm about stardom is a wry pun on his career and the media business aroundhim. Films like these are not meant to be analysed, they are meant to beenjoyed, and THE RUNNING MAN certainly manages to do that.

After a shaky start involving the worst title sequence in the history ofcinema (although it's good to see the Sinclair Spectrum finally get globaluse!), director Paul Michael Glaser presents an eye-popping glimpse at thetelevision of tomorrow. This witty slice of sociological irony would haveadmittedly been slicker in the hands of regular Paul Verhoeven, but Glaserkeeps the action flowing throughout, and presents us with some bizarrelyfascinating villains as well as the usual action frolics. One query, though,is over the level of violence. Oddly enough there doesn't really seem to beenough. In a program where the broad concept is horrifically barbaric,Glaser seems reluctant to horrify us beyond the disappointing "see the bloodspattering from the violence that's just off camera" and those awful rubbercorpses! I do not wish to appear to be encouraging unnecessary violence, butin a comic-book film where 'gore is its core', not including it almost makesyou feel that it is trying to take itself too seriously, and therefore makesit even more horrific. Perhaps this delicate subject is better explained byPaul Verhoeven in his excellent commentary to ROBOCOP (DVD CriterionCollection).

But the performances in THE RUNNING MAN are suitably solid, from thepowerful Schwarzenegger to the sleazy game show host. Any fan of the 80saction genre will love this, so sit back and prepare forSHOWTIME!!!!!!

Mild Spoilers

In the near future, Arnold stars as Ben Richards, a wrongly convictedman coerced into playing 'The Running Man', a deadly TV game show wherepeople have to keep moving to try and escape brutal deaths at the handsof the 'Stalkers'. Of course, people are expected to die eventually andits up to Arnold to prove the system wrong.

I haven't read the Stephen King book, but this is a great filmregardless, one of Arnold's best. He does what he does best in theaction man role, delivering death with unforgettable one-liners.Classics are probably the 'He was a real pain in the neck' afterstrangling a guy with barb wire, and 'He had to split!', referring towhereabouts he just chain sawed someone vertically. Dawson is perfectlyirritating as the TV presenter, and all the 'Stalkers' are suitablycamp. The action is violent, but its an action film. That's the point.The film is fast paced, and at 90 minutes it doesn't overstay itswelcome.

With Starsky and Hutch's Paul Michael Glaser at the helm, and made inthe wake of the success of The Terminator, previously this film wasprobably seen as just another mindless action vehicle for Arnold, andvery far fetched. But today, anyone who watches a lot of TV could seehow the film is getting closer to reality. I wouldn't be surprised if Iturn on the TV in the 'near future' and see a show not to far fromthis.

On that depressing note, I must however recommend 'The Running Man' toanyone who likes the 80s, Arnold, ridiculous acts or violence or just agood action film. 9. 5 / 10

This Arnie veichle made in his 80's heyday is one of his better ones, It'samovie based on a Stephen King book of the same name.It stars Arnie as a convicted killer (framed of course!)inthenear future - Where TV is everything, He's forced to take part in asadisticgame show called 'The Running man' with an equally sadistic host played byreal life game show host Richard Dawson in which convicted killers arechased by 'Stalkers' with Chainsaw's and flametorches who aim to kill thebad guys on National Live TV with the audience going wild and choosingwhichstalker will make their next kill to win board games and other crap,Stalkers have NEVER been killed on the show - Will Arnie & CO in theirsillylycra pants kick the crap outta them? Of course they will

All in all a likeable if dated 80's Arnie Flick
