‘Rollerball’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

21 March 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: James Caan, John Houseman, Maud Adams, John Beck, Moses Gunn, Pamela Hensley, Barbara Trentham, John Normington, Shane Rimmer, Burt Kwouk | Written by William Harrison | Directed by Norman Jewison

We live in an age where remakes take movies from the past and look to modernise them, sometimes changing them completely.  Sometimes this works, and sometimes it ends up in a complete shambles, dumbing down what the original stood for and losing the whole point of what they were trying to replicate.  This is the case with Rollerball, a cult classic which suffered the bad remake treatment.  Thankfully in this review though I’m looking at the original film which is being released by Arrow Video on Blu-ray, so from this point on we can forget the remake even existed.

In a future controlled by corporations war is a thing of the past and the only conflict is Rollerball.  Jonathan E. »
