The Running man

No one was interested in making movies based on the writings of
Richard Bachman. His novels Rage, The Long Walk, Roadwork,
and The Running Man were modest sellers that often had
only one printing. More, they were dark and rough novels King wrote
in his early years. That changed in 1985 when Bachman was exposed
as a pen name for Stephen King. Just two years later Arnold
Schwarzenegger was The Running Man–a very loose
adaptation of the ’82 Bachman novel. The film is now a cult hit,
fondly remembered by Generation X, but is it any good? Listen now
to find out!
