Product Description

In 2025 global tension is growing between a hawaiian liberation group and a North American alliance. On the brink of war, star athlete Tre Ramsay must compete in 'FutureSport' against the hawaiian team to settle the conflict. A sci-fi action film with a similar theme to Rollerball.

From Amazon.co.uk

Shades of Rollerball! Director Ernest Dickerson and executive producer Wesley Snipes ponder the sport of the future and come up with... "Futuresport", a combination of handball, ice hockey, and skateboard hot-dogging begun as an inner-city alternative to gang warfare and transformed into a glitzy media sensation. Dean Cain stars as the reigning Futuresport hero, a cocky glory hound who counts his cash and "popularity index" ratings with a smug grin until his narcissism costs him the championship game. As a ruthless terrorist group pushes the world to the brink of war, the suddenly altruistic Cain hatches a plan to bring Futuresport back to its roots. With the help of reporter (and former flame) Vanessa Williams and the game's creator (a rastah-inflected Snipes, who gives himself the film's best role), Cain proposes a winner-take-all game to settle the territorial dispute. Beefy former TV "Superman" Cain makes a better reformed hero than a snotty superstar and looks great in the game scenes, but Snipes steals the film with his funky turn as the inner-city guru with more on his mind than the game. Dickerson gives this TV film a handsome look and even injects a little grit into the otherwise bland screenplay, but apart from the zippy game scenes (which Dickerson films with an electrified energy), it's a familiar and rather flat bit of science fiction hokum. --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Having watched this film originally on the small screen (SCI-Fi Channel to be precise), I have to say it rings true that Wesley Snipes acting was terrible in this film. Dean Cain was wooden. The only great performance was that of the villan played by JR Bourne, how refreshing an actor of this calibre. Its a shame the writing wasn't any better, they all could have had a better chance.
Some of the sport scenes where thought out well. If only a game of sport could decide a war in this current climate, how many people could we really save?
Watch this for fun, don't expect much, but watch for JR Bourne, he will be a star of the future.

I first saw this movie years ago on channel five not expecting a great deal, however I was deemed wrong as I was actually enjoying the movie. The acting is not oscar worthy but convincing at times but the action is where it shows its worth, even though the production value isnt the highest but the CGI etc is very well done which is rather surprising considering it was a made-for-tv movie, first shown on ABC in October 1998. Overall I beleive it deserves a 4* rating when compared with other made-for-tv movies it is well above par, but it doesnt get the 5* as it is not perfect but it still deserves good recognition

After reading other reviews and then ignoring them I bought this DVD for a few quid, I then watched it and was pleasantly surprised. All of the other reviews had stated the film was a total disaster but I thought it was a totally realistic and well thought out plot. Come on, a game where the sole purpose is to eliminate WAR, that can't be bad! And when that game is all about beating the other team up and not getting electrocuted by the ball come on it must be worth a little bit of a go. The plot is totally newly fangled in a way that I have never seen before definitely worth a look for a night in when bored.

In a word, watchable. Neither engrossing nor deplorable the film sets out to mildly entertain and achieves it's goal. Most of the acting is passable and the film really doesn't ask for more than for Williams to look sultry, Cain to look athletic and Snipes, as by far the most experienced actor to play a more twisting and ultimately controlling role. As far as TV movies go this ain't the worst, Britanic is. If your looking for action and sports try Rollerball with James Caan. if your a Snipes fan then for acting you'll know to look at New Jack City, for action to look at Blade.

Just a quick note to say that if you are considering getting this on the so-ridiculous-it-rocks basis then do not. We caught it on the ads on an old VHS and swore we would obtain a copy of this stupid movie, get inebriated, and love it. Unfortunately things didn't work out like that - the film is just rubbish, and watches like a long episode of a crap cable action series. We were hoping for some serious exposition on how a board sport could be turned into a team game - but the actual 'futuresport' aspect is never really explained. Why some players are on rollerblades but other have FLYING BOARDS is just annoying rather than amusing. It goes without saying that this is a total rip-off of likeable b-movie Rollerball, but it's worth noting it adds nothing an leaves out way way more (and f*ck me, how depressing it is to think that Rollerball is now something of a classic due to the poor quality of most films). If you live somewhere where medicinal marijuana is available, then it may go well with your back pains.
