Ah-nuld starred in some of the best action movies of the '80s and early '90s. Some of them had equally entertaining soundtracks, especially the choir-laden epic Conan the Barbarian. The music from Running Man is simple, futuristic and unforgettable. This disc is a great way to sample music from movies you know and love, instead of buying 8 different soundtracks off the bat!
Neat compilation, but you gotta love the genre.

"Varese Sarabande arguably turns out the best contemporary, right-off-the-soundtrack compilations around, this CD included. Although the tracks span quite a few years (eight films worth), the sound is even and quite good (due, of course, to excellent re-recording technical processes). As usual, the CD Producer seems to have picked selections so as to minimize main-title-itis (thank you very much!). The listener gets to sample some themes and variations that lie after/before the opening/closing credits. Unfortunately, with this genre often there isn't a heck of a lot of new music after/before the opening/closing credits; and many film scores sound just like their predecessors (especially if that predecessor made big bucks). Repetition (and monotony) are always a few bytes away. Of course, it's darn hard to improve on orchestrations and arrangements when you're stuck with the "in-the-can" originals! Which is precisely the problem here (and with most off-the-track scores and compilations). Bottom line: if you are a hard-core case (like me), this CD definitely belongs in your collection; but if you've only browsing, just munch by (and don't buy)."
A GREAT COMPILATION CD!!

"This CD is a great way to get some rare and out of print music from some of Arnolds greatest films. The CD contains 3 tracks from Terminator 2, 2 from Conan the Barbarian, 2 from Kindergarten Cop, 2 from Total Recall, 3 from The Running Man, 1 from Red Sonja, 3 from Raw Deal and 2 from Conan the Destroyer.
Some of these CD's are way out of print and exspensive, this CD is too if you settle for a used one, But the good news is a new copy can be purchased for $12 at varese sarabande's web site. The CD is not really out of print but a web site exclusive. So save yourself some cash and get a new one and some great music from some of the best composers in the industry."
