1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful!, 27 Jun. 2013
By 
This review is from: Rollerball [2002] [DVD] (DVD)
I can't remember the last time I thought a film was so bad I turned it off but Rollerball had me reaching for the remote after I had endured 45 painful minutes. The 1970s original, although not a classic, is certainly a well-made film. It has a good cast, especially James Caan, and a credible dystopian script. The three Rollerball matches/action sequences are exceptional.

This remake jettisons anything approaching a coherent plot, has a script that is moronic, is full of gratuitous shots of topless woman (working out in a gym with your kit off, for example!) and an appalling rock soundtrack. Remember the Bach from the original? The only thing that could have potentially saved it was the Rollerball matches - but these are on a much smaller circuit, make no sense and have even less excitement about them.

Usually my attitude in reviews is to suggest other Amazon viewers make up their own minds. But in this case I recommend you do not bother with this film. See the original instead. And to think this is the work of the director who once brought us Die Hard! (Though admittedly I did read that the film was extensively recut without his permission.) Dreadful...
