Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Running Man

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this futuristic riff on THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME about a dystopian society where "criminals" are sent into an arena to be hunted by gladiators in a nationally televised reality show. A kind of precursor to THE HUNGER GAMES, the film was ahead of its time. A bit cheesy now, but it holds up surprisingly well. Based on an early work by Stephen King.
