The Running Man (1987) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Running Man is actually a really fun film.  And oddly prescient all things considered.    Yup it’s aged and the budget isn’t as big as the ideas but there’s a heck of a lot to like here and it holds up really well.  Years before bIg Brother and Gladiators, Running Man did them both.  Violent, silly, action packed and full of one liners it’s 80’s sci-fi and action films are it’s purest.  It’s also a pretty decent Stephen King adaptation!

Best Bit: Arnie in full on Arnie mode.
