Total Recall: Who's the Man?
We count down 10 of our favorite movie Men.
|7. The Running Man
1980s sci-fi was unusually prescient. Blade Runner dissected eroding humanity, and Robocop briefly delved into the pervasiveness of advertisements. The Running Man depicts a world whose voracious appetite for violence and titillation leads to sadistic game shows. Sound familiar? Here, Arnold Schwarznegger stars as a wrongly convicted man forced to run a televised gauntlet of traps and killer combatants. With its macho 1980s swagger and non-stop scenery chewing, The Running Man is about as subtle as a game of Smash TV. But it is cheesy fun, and we'll take this kind of abuse over Moment of Truth's emotional torture porn any day.
