Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as Ben Richards, a cop in the totalitarian America of 2019, framed for massacring rioting civilians during a famine. After escaping from jail, Richards tries to prove his innocence, but his efforts are thwarted at every turn by a regime in need of a scapegoat. Richards is captured along with an innocent civilian, Amber Mendez (Maria Conchita Alonso), and they are forced to participate in a violent game show called "The Running Man," hosted by the unctuous Damon Killian (Richard Dawson). The object of the game for Richards and Mendez: obtain freedom by staying alive against a gauntlet of skillful assassins like "Subzero" (Prof. Toru Tanaka) and "Captain Freedom" (Jesse Ventura), each armed with unique weapons like razor-sharp hockey sticks and chainsaws. With the help of some fellow "contestants," Richards is able to tap into government computers and prove his innocence. The Running Man was very loosely based on a short story by Stephen King, who wrote it under the name Richard Bachman.

This should be upgraded to 4K, when it becomes available.

The amount of Arnie quotes in this movie is worth the £3.99 alone. Brilliant movie!!!
Peak Arnie and Peak 80s action film

The one liners, the synth music, the steroid pumped up meatheads, the dystopian totalitarian future, and the foresight not to take itself too seriously by keeping a light comedic tone

Watched Monday night on Amazon Prime video

Mr. Spock you have the con. Who's Mr. Spock?
Good deal peter
I saw this in the cinema on original release. An Arnie classic. Love this film.
On SYFY pretty often if you have Sky.
It's currently available on Amazon Prime, if that's more suitable for some.
Side note, the book was written by Stephen King and is a great read as well!

Shame it's nothing like the film.
Is this likely to see a 4K release?

I quite enjoyed that it didn't!
Felt more like a dystopian 'Fugitive' than the film. Its got a pulpy feel to it, but a solid read through out (for me).

It's all about Captain Freedom's workout for me

A few Arnie films have just received the 4K treatment, so this should at some point be remastered to 4K. However when that will be I've no idea, it took a long time to get a blu-ray release. Unfortunately the way the internet is, it's quite difficult to actually find any information.

Doubtful

there's a cult following but ticket sales were low, as were dvd sales and HD blu ray sales

My view is the opposite. Shame the film is nothing like the book.

i read the book (which is brilliant) and when I heard they were making a film I couldn't wait. Probably the worst book --> film translation I've seen. Hated the film and haven't even considered watching a second time.

Maybe Colin Farrell could do it as a remake like Total Recall .

If that hadn't been a remake, it probably would have got better reviews.

Probably. But Arnie's version was pretty good.
