McTiernan and the talent-deprived buffoons who wrote the remake took away the futurism and stripped most of the social satire from this cautionary tale.

Rather than be a Vonnegut story, as the original is, the newest Rollerball is what writers like Vonnegut warn us about.

An incoherent mess, a jumble of footage in search of plot, meaning, rhythm and sense.

Like a gerbil exercising in a wheel, this movie spins and spins, generating a lot of action and noise, but getting absolutely nowhere.

A mix of velocity and idiocy, this ruinous remake lacks the brawn -- and the brains -- of the 1970s original.

A limply acted, inane orgy of bloodletting.

It is that rare combination of bad writing, bad direction and bad acting -- the trifecta of badness.

An incomprehensible story, lackluster actors, embarrassing acting, and, get this, no villains!

Jewison's rich and provocative 1975 original has been de-metaphorized, made narrow and pointless, while remaining just as loud and violent.

McTiernan and company do take one more thing from Jewison's original: the game still doesn't make any sense, but now the plot doesn't either.

Who's in the mood to play games with Rollerball, an insipid and excitable mindless sports fantasy that rolls over your cinematic senses in incomplete, boisterous fashion?

This is a terrible big-budget fiasco with a go nowhere plot and terrible cast.

The new film looks as if it were made in 1975, while Jewison's 27-year-old movie seems like up-to-date state-of-the-art.

Rollerball looks like a checklist shaped by a 15-year-old mallrat: thrashing metal track, skateboards, motorbikes, cracked heads and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos with her top off.

...a virtually plotless, flash-bang failure...so devoid of substance it almost defies description.

When the trailers for the film tell you... the big, astonishing twist, you end up spending the first 45 minutes of the movie wondering when the damn movie is going to start.
