Plot Summary

John McTiernan's "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 maximize 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The new version just makes you feel like you've been watching a lame late-night rerun while stuck in a thunderdome. – Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Although Norman Jewison's stolidly grim and ultimately ludicrous 1975 original was hardly a landmark of nightmarish sci-fi, it towers over this. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: John McTiernan's botched remake may be subtler than Norman Jewison's 1975 ultraviolent futuristic corporate-sports saga. It's also stupider. – Jeff Stark,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: It's almost enough to make Burton's Apes retread seem like a work of artistic ingenuity. – Mark Holcomb, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010
