Only those attracted to Waterworld- or Last Action Hero-level big-budget disasters need bother with this one.
March 26, 2013
Loud, crude and outlandish, Rollerball is a parody of itself, a frenzy of extreme-sports stunts masquerading as social commentary on violence and the corporate forces that feed off it.
March 26, 2013
A dire re-working of the provocative 1975 sci-fi satire.
April 29, 2009
This is a terrible big-budget fiasco with a go nowhere plot and terrible cast.
November 20, 2008
The French accents go from Canadian to European within a sentence, and that's only from the ones I could pick up. Who knows what other languages were massacred in the process?

This film was long-delayed and much altered in post-production and it shows.
June 11, 2008
Although Norman Jewison's stolidly grim and ultimately ludicrous 1975 original was hardly a landmark of nightmarish sci-fi, it towers over this.
November 8, 2007
This remake exists for no clear reason at all. It doesn't even make sense and the action is dull and repetitive.

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.

Rollerball is rigged to play as a critique of the corporate media's ruthlessly sensational tactics (overseas, that is), but even a junior-high hockey goalie could recognize it as a cheesy product of such sensationalism itself.

It's rare to see a movie fail in every possible area ...

August 1, 2003
...tries to work in some eye-rolling instances of social commentary, and this is where it fails completely.

April 8, 2003
An own-goal fest that will have you asleep in your seat by half time.

January 15, 2003
Pushes the Hollywood action movie to stratospheric new levels of incoherence.
January 13, 2003
Despite delivering a sexy Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, this 5-mph trainwreck is a badly executed attempt at action that can't even be relied upon to deliver mindless and gratuitous violence.

December 23, 2002
The rollerball sequences feel sanitised and stagey.

December 8, 2002
The way the action is shown here, it's an incoherent mess.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
December 8, 2002
Such a brain dead, jukebox of a movie, it should've been called Tron for Dummies.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 7, 2002
A mix of velocity and idiocy, this ruinous remake lacks the brawn -- and the brains -- of the 1970s original.

There's nothing surprising about it, but aficionados of speed, quick cuts and high-tech mayhem will love John McTiernan's direction here. Oh, and there are way cool cars too.
