Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Running Man

Stephen King's inventive dystopian satire is very loosely adapted for the screen as this tacky 80s action movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes a fool of himself as usual, though Maria Conchita Alonso doesn't fare much better. Incredibly cheesy and horribly dated, with ridiculous costumes and goofy action scenes - but it is somewhat entertaining in a fun bad movie kind of way.
