Giles J Davis's rating of the film The Running Man

Although visually dated, TRM is as vital a piece of distopian Sci-Fi as Blade Runner, Soylent Green or Fahrenheit 451, setting the precedents for a not so far away future & predicting how we'll be entertaining ourselves at the cost of others. Political predictions also run true with racial/class differences smattered alongside Arnie kicking ass but sadly that's just it. Above all its an Arnie feature from the 80's. C
