Join us as we appear at the video game film that does not know it really is a video game film.
Just as video game boss fights have been becoming far more sophisticated, Hollywood gave us 1987’s The Operating Man, a film that—whether its writer knew it or not—exists as a 100-minute-lengthy boss rush. Although other significant, beefy action films of the ’80s inspired video games far more straight, this reduce-profile entry in the Schwarzenegger canon could have had an even larger impact on the way we appear at boss fights in basic. On this episode of Retronauts, join Bob Mackey, Jeremy Parish, and Henry Gilbert as the crew examines this cheesy chunk of social commentary, and the numerous games it would influence in its wake. It really is showtime!
