futuristic violent fun! (for all regions),
This review is from: Running Man [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Always had a soft spot for this cheesy but entertaining Arnie vehicle.
The story is set in the future about a uber-violent tv gameshow where convicts are forced to fight to the death in some quite elaborate ways.
Cue some classic Arnie one-liners, action and chase sequences, topped off with a great ending.
Features the great Yaphet Kotto, and the lovely Maria Conchita Alonso.
Trivia; Maria and Arnie, both faced the alien 'Predator', Arnie in the original Predator (Special Edition)  and Maria in the unimaginably titled but underrated Predator sequel Predator 2 (2 Disc Special Edition) , also similarly set in a violent future.
This was of course before the alien-v-predator franchise tarnished it forever...
They've really pushed the boat out here on this 2 disc version, with a great remastered anamorphic,(unlike the standard version[ASIN:B00005JSGU The Running Man  ]] widescreen (and fullscreen) print, 5.1EX,6.1 DTS-ES soundtracks, commentaries, documentaries etc. making this the definitive DVD version to get.
Note; although listed as region 1, i tested it in both a region 1 and 2 locked player, and it appears there is no regional coding applied, and why indeed should any older title such as this have any?

Hi - very helpful review, thanks.
Can you confirm there is no region coding on this Blu Ray?

Thanks for your comment.
My review is only for the Artisan dvd special edition.
Unfortunately Amazon combines all the reviews for all versions.
However, If you look at the top of any review there is a link to the actual product under review.
I am most likely obtaining the Blu-ray, but according to bluray.liesinc.net/ it is region A locked.
I will post a review when I receive it.
