Welcome to 2019, the year The Running Man is set! See if this prophetic and hilarious ‘80s Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick is science fiction, or actually a documentary!
“The Running Man is a clever, smart, and prophetic dark satire that holds up as a shocking reflection of where we actually stand as a society today.” – Felix Vasquez, Cinema Crazed
Set in the far-flung totalitarian future of 2019, The Running Man stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as Ben Richards, a man who has been falsely accused of a massacre he didn’t commit. After some careful planning and skull-cracking, Richards finds himself on the lamb before being apprehended and cast on The Running Man, the popular TV show of the future wherein convicted felons are provided with a chance at freedom provided they can outrun and outlive their heavily-armed and completely insane stalkers. And who would host such a macabre show? Why, no other than TV’s Kissing Bandit himself, Richard Dawson! What follows is a non-stop barrage of fisticuffs, machine guns, flamethrowers, opera singing, and rapid-fire one-liners, delivered with mega‘80s-awesomeness by Arnold and his tough guy co-stars, including Jesse “The Body” Ventura (also Arnold’s co-star in Predator), Yaphet Kotto (Alien) and Jim Brown (Three the Hard Way). Based on a story by Stephen King (alias Richard Bachman), The Running Man is a violent, legitimately funny sci-fi action flick filled with media satire, social commentary and, of course, massive musclebound mayhem. (Dir. by Paul Michael Glaser, 1987, USA, 101 mins., Rated R)
