Описание: К 2017 году излюбленным развлечением для жителей Америки, превратившейся в полувоенное государство, стало садиское телешоу "Бегущий человек", участники которого - невинные жертвы - не имели ни единого шанса на выживание. Среди них оказался полицейский Бэн Ричардс (Арнольд Шварценеггер), отказавшийся расстрелять безоружную толпу голодных людей. Теперь вместе с собратьями по несчастью ему предстоит принять участие в безумной гонке со смертью, сразиться с непобедимыми монстрами - Профессором Крио, Бензопилой, Шаровой Молнией и Динамо, и отомстить бесчеловечному хозяину шоу.
Рецензии: In The Running Man, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Ben Richards, an innocent man accused of mass murder. The film is set in 2019 and Ben is forced to take part in a gameshow called The Running Man, a gameshow where you literally have to fight for your life.
This is a great film full of the usual Arnie action and with an interesting premise. Richard Dawson plays slimy gameshow host Damon Killian who blackmails Ben Richards in the film and Maria Conchita Alonso plays Amber Mendez, also on the run with Ben Richards.
The action in this film is great and there are some interesting villains in the show. Arnie does his usual good job (he says f**k you better than anyone else) with some great dialogue and there's the usual fisticuffs and explosions. The characters in this movie are all characters you can feel some kind of emotion for (whether it be love or hate). This is one of Arnie's underrated gems.
I first watched this movie back in 1987 and to me, it was just entertainment and pure fantasy. That was 1987. I'm writing this in 2003 and this show may be closer to reality than you would think.
All over the world, since the late 90's but more so during this century, there have been a glut of reality TV shows. Big Brother, Survivor, I'm A Celebrity:Get Me Outta Here. More and more shows seem to be reality than fiction. People are literally doing things on live TV that may have seemed unrealistic years ago. This is an interesting point. Back in 1987, The Running Man was fiction. Here, in 2003, a gameshow like The Running Man may be closer to reality than anyone would have ever thought possible. TV producers are continually trying to top their last effort-don't be surprised if something similar to this film appears within the next ten years.
