Holds up a shocking reflection of where we actually stand as a society in 2017.

One of those movies that's a lot of fun to watch without being particularly good, The Running Man is a chintzy-looking affair that gets by on stunt casting and a killer concept.

Give the movie credit for being prescient: Given the disgusting rise and success of reality TV, it's not difficult at all to imagine fans of garbage like Survivor or Jersey Shore easily turning into the audience for a deathsport show like The Running Man.

Schwarzenegger sadistically dispatches the baddies, enunciating typical wisecrack remarks (many repeated from his previous films), but it's all too easy.
April 30, 2008
A brainless, breathless thrill.

It's an arcade-game romp done with flair.
June 5, 2007
Only Richard Dawson -- brilliantly cast -- redeems this mess with a superior performance.

August 25, 2006
The fun of the movie is really in its premise, its cool confrontations between Arny & villains, the cheezy one-liners and Maria Conchita-Alonso in tights!

Pretty warmed-over stuff, this future world of the terminal TV game shows, and director Glaser fails to muster much pace and punch.
December 21, 2004
Richard Dawson's best performance in a film.

It's not quite Network, but then it also doesn't take itself too seriously.

The licenses taken with King's original tale only serve to make a more effective movie.

The story concept is good, and the film has plenty of fun and campy moments, but it’s also a little goofy.

We can only hope network execs that are watching don't get any funny ideas.

Another guilty pleasure from the Schwarzenegger catalog

The picture fails to please beyond its glossy surface, cheap thrills, and crazed Richard Dawson cameo. Hmm ... maybe that's not such a bad thing.

The movie's problem is that all of the action scenes are versions of the same scenario.

You want to know if The Running Man is a good-time macho show, right? Stay at home and watch professional wrestling.

The message is irrelevant. It's still the Olympian myth, albeit in a Lycra leotard, that counts with the Arn Man.
