The Running Man

Richards (Ahnuld Schwarzenegger) and Amber (Maria Conchita Alonso) make it to the underground resistance base. Before being killed by Dynamo, Weiss told Amber the password of the network broadcasting signal. Amber tells the rebels the password and they play the real recording of the massacre Richards was framed for on the network broadcast signal. Now the audience knows that Richards was framed; Richards, Amber and the rebels storm the network building. Richards sends Killian on one of the game show cars down to the gamezone but the safety net isnt there to catch the car so Killian's car crashes into a billboard and explodes.

Other mistake: This is in regards to a previous correction. A submitter pointed out that in the video footage of the helicopter incident shown to the crowd, the last shot of Arnie getting knocked out was seen from his perspective and as such could never have been filmed by any camera. The correction stated that Killian's men could simply have doctored the footage, probably as a way of showing what happens to criminals. But the problem is, the footage showing Arnie being knocked out is the undoctored one shown at the end of the film by the Rebels, which hasn't been tampered with by anyone.

Damon Killian: Hi, cutie-pie. You know, one of us is in deep trouble. You know who I am?
Ben Richards: I've seen you before. You're the asshole on TV.
Damon Killian: That's funny. I was gonna say the same thing about you.

Trivia: When Killian is talking about the next possible contestant, he points out he's 120 pounds and wouldn't last 30 seconds. This is somewhat making fun of how they used Arnold Schwarzenegger to portray Ben Richards. In the book "The Running Man" (which has a very different structure), Ben Richards is described as "scrawny", the complete opposite of Arnold.
