Oh no, a fight-to-the-death TV show, which entertains the masses in a far off, dystopian future!

The Running Man can certainly count its place among…these kinds of movies. It’s certainly not the worst of its type, and it’s far from the best.

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays an LA cop, who disobeyed a command which would’ve killed a bunch of innocents.

For his recalcitrance, he’s sent up shit’s creek in the form of being an involuntary participant in a wildly popular game show.

There are a bunch of movies like this, The Condemned, Rollerball, The Hunger Games, Battle Royale, No Exit – it’s a pretty lengthy list beyond that too. And for the most part, they are pretty similar. But no less fun.

Tune in!
