Rollerball (2002) Reviews
I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since a colleague of mine had the DVD, I thought I should check it out. Furthermore, I must admit I was actually curious to see if it was really that bad. Honestly, it could have been pretty cool. Indeed, to reboot this science-fiction story with some modern special effects was actually a not so bad idea and I'm pretty sure that they had a decent budget. So, the concept was pretty cool but still they managed to make one of the worst movies ever... The story, the acting and even the special effects were just embarrassing. It is hard to believe that the man behind this was John McTiernan, a director responsible for some of the most badass action movies ever made ('Predator' and 'Die Hard'). I mean, the cast was made of B actors (Chris Klein, Jean Reno, LL Cool J, Rebecca Romijn, Naveen Andrews), even though Rebecca Romijn was not bad but, above all, they didn't manage to make this sport looked cool and the whole thing still looked terribly cheesy. To conclude, it was basically a gigantic failure, on all levels, and it is definitely not worth a look whatsoever.
