Runaway (1984) Sci-Fi Marathon

Runaway (1984) - In the near future policeman Sgt. Jack Ramsay (Tom Selleck) and his new partner Officer Karen Thompson (Cynthia Rhodes) have the job of stopping runaway robots. Usually a mundane job things get hairy when Dr. Charles Luther (Gene Simmons) starts making killer robots. As the police close in Dr. Luther goes after a whistle blower, Jackie Rogers (Kirstie Alley)and then Ramsay's son Bobby (Joey Cramer). Ramsay must beat the Doctor and his fiendish inventions before his son is killed.
What I liked: Gene Simmons in his totally over the top bad guy. The movie holds up okay over time and has a bit of decent action in it. The robots are not great but in the end the good guys win and the truly bad guy is done in by his own robots.
What didn't work: Robots simple, Simmons was over the top but really bad.
Rating (6.3)
