In the ear future convicted criminals are forced to take part as bait in a hideous TV manhunt. When Ben Richards refuses to fire on a crowd if starving citizens, he is picked to go on the show, and must survive such hunters as Captain Freedom and Fireball before teaming up with some revolutionaries and fighting back.
Never managing to look more hi-tech or further on from 1987 than, well, Hi-tech trainers, this Arnie vehicle still runs it's bloody course without dropping many gears. A brainless, breathless thrill.
