    A fun and surprisingly insightful/scary look at a fictional future state where the most popular program on state-controlled TV is a game show that pits enemies of the state against professional "stalkers". With the deck stacked against the "contestant", most will die. Schwarzenegger is suddenly thrust into the game and it is a race against oppression and impending death.

    Despite its heavy 80s influence and one-liners, this is a fun, intelligent look at commercialization and television. One of Arnold's better sci-fi films that doesn't end in "erminator".

    One of the major antagonists in the film is an obese electricity-wielding opera singer who is dressed like a Lite Brite. Also at one point Jesse Ventura is dressed just like Ron Burgundy (was that the inspiration for Anchorman's costumer, I wonder?) 6 years 5 months ago

    If Trancers, Galaxy Quest, and Stargate can be on the top 100 Sci-fi list, why can't The Running Man?! 8 years 5 months ago
