The Running Man and Total Recall are related


Schwarzenegger movies set in the future, both have a Latina leading lady and middle aged villain, black and blue storm troopers and 80's fashions.

When I was a kid I used to get those two movies mixed up in my mind. I'd rent The Running Man and be expecting scenes from Total Recall, and vice versa.

I think Total Recall and RoboCop have a close relationship as they are both directed by Paul Verhoeven..I don't know how he did it but his movie sets always looked great with vivid, clear lighting.

Running Man has future commercials that you would see in RoboCop, Total Recall and Starship Troopers.

Both movies are similar being Arnold movies set in the future but the cogs Of The Running Man are like The Hunger Games
where people are hunted to death on a game show while Total Recall is more like The Bourne Identity with a secret agent with memory loss is hunted by shadowy agents.
