I know this is a long shot, but there is a movie I remembered and cannot think of the title. I can tell a little about it. A group of people running in the woods and there were obstacles they had to get around and the one that makes it to the finish line wins. I remember a guy going into a village and a lot of crazy people there and they are trying to kill him and this guy starts doing some fancy gymnastics and beating these people down. I know it was on HBO all the time around the years of 198-somthing to 1989 and cinemax also had it on. Anyone can help with the name thanks!
