+10% Quidco! (£2.69)
This is a tale of reality TV taken to the extreme, in a future where TV rules the world Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Ben Richards, a cop who has been blamed for a massacre that wasn't his fault and sent to compete on a lethal gameshow called "The Running Man" where he and his fellow contestants have to run for their lives while being chased by ruthless gladiator style killers.
Directed by Paul Michael Glaser who is perhaps most familiar as Starsky from "Starsky And Hutch" and based on a novel by Stephen King this is much more than just another Arnold vehicle. It is a witty and well-written satire on America's obsession with TV that seems more and more probably as we get more extreme reality shows each year. The film has the requisite thrills and spills that you'd expect from an Arnie film as well as clever dialogue from the writer of the first two "Die Hard" films. A brilliant action movie that is more relevant now than ever.
