Rollerball

Threat advisory: Low - Low risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

Rollerball takes place in the not too distant future, and the future is fierce. A notorious renegade sport, Rollerball packs arenas all over the world. A global viewership bets and roots for star players Jonathan Cross (Chris Klein), Marcus Ridley (LL Cool J) and their beautiful teammate Aurora (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos) who skate and motorcycle past opponents to score. Despite the danger of the game, the real threat lies in team owner Petrovich (Jean Reno) who sacrifices anything and anyone to maximise ratings, which are worth more to him than the final score. In a heroic move, Jonathan and his teammates attempt to expose the corruption and treachery. It is a risky play and the penalty is lethal.

Remake of the 1975 film of the same title.

Arf.

The original film wasn't very good and this remake is worse. The acting is a deep as a sheet of cardboard. The script is as dynamic as a sheet of cardboard. The direction is a dramatic as a sheet of cardboard.
