In this fast action-packed thriller, Jonathan, Marcus, and Aurora compete in a dangerous, fierce sport called Rollerball. Although, Johnathan and Marcus try to quit, cruel and vindictive promoter Alexi Petrovich encourages them to still participate.
McTiernen takes a nearly Experimental Filmmaking approach to this _Rollerball_ remake. I mean, it totally doesn't work, but at least it's weird-dumb instead of regular-dumb. Weird-dumb enough to feature a live performance by Slipknot as a lynchpin of the movie. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
