The Running Man
DescriptionReally this movie has little to do with the actual story, except the basic idea of a 'contest to the death'. I liked the $27 Million movie, but Arnold Schwarzenegger was not a good actor at this stage, so he really did detract from the movie. Maybe some one will do a better version of the story one day... The Game show host Damon Killian is played by Richard Dawson, long-time host of the American game show "Family Feud", so I think he's really in his element here.
Of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger does do his usual "I'll be back!", which helped the movie gross some $39 million from the box office.
The announcer's voiceover at the end of the movie can be quite comic, mentioning things like: "The Running Man has been brought to you by: Breakaway Paramilitary Uniforms, Orville Pure Procreation Pills, and Cadre Cola - it hits the spot."
