Appologies if allready posted.

The year is 2019. Television is now ruling people's lives. The most popular 'audience participation' game show is 'The Running Man'- where convicts can win pardons instead of 'parting gifts' by defeating murderous henchmen known as 'stalkers'. The stalkers haven't had much of a challenge lately. Until Ben Richards comes along.

Wrongly convicted of slaughtering 1500 innocent people, Richards is the next contestant to fight for his life and his freedom. When 'Running Man' host Damon Killian says 'Come on down!', be prepared to pay with your life! But Ben Richards isn't going down without a fight. Off Richards goes into the burned-out sections of Los Angeles to face four of Killian's ace stalkers. Now the entire country is glued to the tube.

No way!
I'll have to dig out my region 1 later this evening - Paid nearly £20 as it wasn't available over here.

I love this movie! Feels like a companion piece to RoboCop with its government/corporation/media satire, funny satirical adverts, industrial future, brutality etc.

cheesy movie but i love it, classic

i swear they based smash tv on this movie

worth every penny have some heat

This was meant to be one of arnies worst movies, but I think its one of his best.

ITS TIME TO START RUNNING

Classic film. Buy it!

"What happened to Buzzsaw ?"
Arnie: "Oh he had to split !"

shocking amount of one-liners in this movie. Just fantastic entertainment!

Should read the book :thumbsup:

I used to watch this nearly every morning before going to primary school as a kid. Still as amazing today as it was all those years ago

Has probally the best one liners Arnie ever did in a movie :P

Voted hot, great film.

Got to love Arnie.8-)

Is this the film where he goes "Well I've got news for you, you're f*cking choir boy compared to me... A CHOIR BOY!!!"?

Great film - terrible DVD - letterboxed, interlaced, looks like a VHS. I paid more on DVD tho, so its a hot deal for the price, but I'm hoping it gets better treatment on Blu ray......

Where's the blu-ray eh!

King is a genius.

Its time to start RUNNING!

One of my favourite Arnie films.

"Because I'm going to say PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE"

Early Arnie rules...my top 5:

1. Predator
2. Terminator
3. Running Man
4. Red Heat
5. True Lies

Saw a trailer at the cinema last week for a film that looks an exact copy of the running man but with better effects and the death row contestants are actually being played like a computer game. Think its called Gamer incase anyone is now wetting themselves with excitement!

This film is so bad, TOTALLY different to Stephen Kings original book which is Excellent, its not set in an arena its set all over america, much much better.

I ll be back!!!!!!!!!!!
Only in a re run!!!!!!!!!!!!
Classic film

Totally agree.

Great book, terrible terrible movie.

One of the Bachman Books wasn't it?

Last Years Winners!!!!

NO LAST YEARS LOOOOOOOSERS!!!

I'd be straight down to Asda if I didn't already own this.

Killian: "Drop dead!"
Arnie: "I don't do requests"

Genius. It looks incredibly dated but it is still a quality movie.

I watched this on SKY HD the other day and the quality was pretty good considering. Flicked a few times between standard and high def. Hopefully it will be released on bluray soon, with some decent extras

What a gem of a film. Its one of the reaons I loved the game Smash TV

My region 1 has both anamorphic widescreen and pan/scan transfers, plus 6.1 DTS ES audio. Looks like region 2 got shafted :whistling:
