1.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it zero stars but that isnt a option :(, 23 May 2003
This review is from: Rollerball [2002] [DVD] (DVD)
Were can I start its going to be hard to review this film without swearing but I'll try......
As a fan of the original I was quite looking forward to this film, when it came out it received poor reviews so I never bothered getting it, however after a good few months I did decide to get it, the original is one of the most powerful films I have seen and is certainly in my top 10, this is by far the worst film I have ever seen in my life. The arena has been modernized and now resembles a circus ring rather than a sports arena, the players are like WWF characters and the action is just lame.
Motorbikes are still a factor however they serve no purpose, the scoring mechanism looks like they have made a prequel rather than a sequel. Chris Klein (a Keanu Reeves wannabe it seems) is the worst actor in the world, he portrays a real soft geezer, a wet fart so to speak and at one point when he was referred to as "The angriest man in the game" I nearly choked to death... Maybe that would have been a good thing as I would not have been able to see the rest of the film.....
The story is pants, the action is superficial, and acting is terrible, the editing (especially the sound) is the worst ever... It is an embarrassment to the word Rollerball, the only good thing to came out of it is REBECCA ROMIJN-STAMOS however that just does not make up for it unfortunately.
Don’t buy, however if you want to be able to tell your mates that you have seen the worst ever film in the history of man, then rent it, and if you haven’t seen the original, then buy that, its a must see film........ sooo disappointed
