The Running Man

 (1987)

The Running Man Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

The year is 2019. Television is now ruling people's lives. The most popular reality show is called "The Running Man" featuring convicts who compete to defeat murderous henchmen known as "stalkers" to win pardon. The next contestant on the show is Ben Richards, a prisoner wrongly convicted of murdering hundreds. When Ben faces off against four of the most brutal stalkers, he begins the fight of his life and leaves the entire country glued to their television sets.

For more about The Running Man and the The Running Man Blu-ray release, see the The Running Man Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Conchita Alonso, Kurt Fuller, Jim Brown, Jesse Ventura, Yaphet Kotto

The Running Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Running Man is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. I no longer have the Lionsgate Blu-ray in my collection, but my memory of it is still strong enough to state that while this new transfer is not optimal, it's still at least a marginal improvement over the first release. The Running Man was never a "pretty" film by any stretch of the imagination, and that kind of soft (some might even say ugly) appearance is still well on display in this newest incarnation. Clarity is improved over the Lionsgate release and colors are more accurate looking and better saturated. Fine detail isn't fantastic on this release, but it pops at least at decent levels in close-ups. The film continues to look a trifle dark at times (though this release looks considerably brighter than the Lionsgate version), though contrast is generally solid and stable throughout the film. As has been the Olive tradition, no egregious digital tweaking of any kind appears to have been done to the elements, and the film retains a very natural layer of grain.


The Running Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Running Man features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix that may worry some viewers who remember the Lionsgate version's repurposed 7.1 track. Why Olive didn't choose to at least give consumers a 5.1 track is a pertinent question given what appears to have been the film's original 6 track theatrical exhibition. That said, the 2.0 track, while obviously very narrow and lacking any real sense of overwhelming depth or immersion, presents the mix fluidly and with good prioritization, offering dialogue cleanly while also presenting the glut of sound effects with excellent fidelity. There's some occasionally wide stereo separation here, but most audiophiles are probably going to be disappointed by the lack of a surround mix on this release.
