By 2017, the global economy has collapsed and American society has become a totalitarian police state, censoring all cultural activity. The government pacifies the populace by broadcasting a number of game shows in which convicted criminals fight for their lives, including the gladiator-style The Running Man, hosted by the ruthless Damon Killian, where “runners” attempt to evade “stalkers” and certain death for a chance to be pardoned and set free.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity A woman exercises in tight work-out clothes. She then fights with a man who breaks in her house, is tied up, and kidnapped. A woman is falsely accused of having sexual relationships with multiple men. It is implied that one of the stalkers is trying to rape a woman, but gets shocked before anything can occur (See "Violence & Gore" for more details).
violence Many people are shot but its rarely graphic. Man's head explodes after his explosive collar detonates.Seen from a distance but very gruesome. It's heavily implied that a crowd of people are massacred by helicopter gunfire (this is seen and mentioned a couple of times). Man pins a piece of paper to another man's back by stabbing him with a pen. Painful but comical. A man is sliced between the legs with a chainsaw. (not seen) Some blood splatters on his face. This is also very gruesome, but is partly played for comedic effect. A guy gets electrocuted. Another guys also gets electrocuted. A man's throat is sliced by barb wire; some blood squirts from his neck. A character wearing an electric suit attempts to rape a woman but is electrocuted when she shoots a sprinkler system which comes into contact with his outfit, killing him. A woman has her neck broken and thrown into barbwire. Two men have a fight with bloody results. One man is thrown into spikes. This is graphic. Character is burned to death on-screen, mildly graphic. Character finds few dead bodies in gruesome postion.
profanity 6 "s" words, 3 "g*d d*mns" some "a" words and "b" words 7 "F" words
alcohol The main hero smokes a cigar at the beginning. A man makes a snide remark to a large, muscular man about being deaf from steroid use; the same muscular man jokes about having to "score some steroids" later in the film.
frightening The movie is intense throughout, in particular 'The Running Man' gameshow featured where unarmed "contestants" run gauntlets with masked characters trying to kill them with a variety of weapons (chainsaw, razor-sharp ice hockey sticks, flamethrower, electrocution) Suggested MPAA Rating: R for strong violence and language
