Yves Boisset sued Twentieth Century Fox for copycat because of the movie Running Man, starring Arnold Schwarzennegger, which the screenplay was exactly the same as his own film. Some documents of the case were lost in a plane crash in the New York bay. See more »
Robert Sheckley is a great sci-fi writer whose short stories are witty and absorbing.Yves Boisset was definitely not the kind of director who could do him justice.
Yves Boisset could succeed in treating committed subjects (the Algeria war in "RAS" or racism in "Dupont -Lajoie".But in "le Prix du Danger" ,he's shooting us a line!The lead is an unambitious actor,Gérard Lanvin,who has made turkeys by the dozen (only "une Semaine de Vacances" and "Une étrange Affaire" are above average in his filmography)He is here no more than Van Damme and co.Michel Piccoli and Marie-France Pisier are supposed to provide the movie with an intellectual alibi,but their cardboard characters and their underwritten parts do not help.
A faux pas: there were many of them in Boisset's eighties' career.
