I tried to watch this on the Sci-Fi Channel and the later on Netflix awhile ago. The movie was based on a book by Stephen King when he was Richard Bachman. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a police guy in the near future, wrongfully accused of murder. In this future the only form of entertainment is the Running Man a game show where criminals fight and compete for their freedom. This premise really sticks with you since it seems like reality TV is going down this road at times. Where we have to intentionally die from someone’s entertainment.
The movie itself is okay and Arnold does a lot of one liners. There’s also some electric guy to tries to kill the Running men and he also does opera too. If your a fan of 80’s Sci-Fi and social commentary this is your movie.
