From the director of Die Hard comes this high-octane thriller that roars along at a breakneck pace (Los Angeles Times)! Starring Chris Klein (American Pie), Jean Reno (Ronin), LL Cool J (Charlie's Angels) and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (X-Men), Rollerball goes full-throttle with excitement from its death-defying opening until its explosive end! Jonathan Cross (Klein) is the newest recruit in the most extreme sport of all time where his fast moves and killer looks make him an instant superstar. But Cross life in the fast lane collides with reality when he learns that the league's owner (Reno) is orchestrating serious on-court accidents to boost ratings. Now Cross plans to take down the owner and his ruthless sport before the game puts an end to him!

This is a very specific kind of movie, It's the kind of movie you go into knowing what to expect, and what you should expect is a fun opening action scene. From there the pace starts to pick up with the introduction of the sport, the team, and the politics of the sport. It quickly becomes a blood sport and within the first 20 minutes of the film we get further look into the world of Rollerball and the violence that surround it.
PROS: Simple to follow story, steady pace, and awesome 90's alt-metal soundtrack.
CONS: One-dimensional characters, predictable plot, and story left me wanting more back-story.
It's like watching an action movie, a Micheal Bay one. You sit down, eat some popcorn, and enjoy the show.
Even with the above stated flaws, I completely love this movie and I have much nostalgia for it.
I would recommend it to anyone who is even slightly interested, it's worth a watch, maybe not a re-watch.
The concept and sport are awesome and I would love to know more about the Rollerball universe.
All social commentary of the original is gone. The effects are bad. Acting non-existent. There are scenes the don't make sense or have no use in the story. No logic in "the sport" at all.
