The year is 2017 and the United States of America is now a militarized police state after sealing off its borders. The general population is kept pacified and entertained with over-the-top, sadistic television programming like “The Running Man”, where convicts are pitted against gladiators for a chance at freedom.
Action star Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this 1987 science fiction film, directed by Paul Michael Glaser. The story is based on a Richard Bachman (aka Stephen King) story. I invite you to listen in as I join Mark the Movieman and Glenn the BFD in the Spoiler Room Podcast to discuss this entertaining movie.
