Not Bad for a Made-For-TV Movie
25 April 2006 | by ivan_maldonado-1See all my reviews

Futuresport was a made-for-TV movie that was shown on the ABC television network back in October 1998. The movie may not be Rollerball, but I liked how the production company added extra footage to give the movie an R rating. The only drawback is that the movie fades out at intervals, but that's because it was on TV. Anyway, the movie is action-packed and is somewhat political. The political aspect is for fans only, but so are the special effects and the entire storyline. The best way to get rid of that made-for-TV look is to watch it on DVD in widescreen format. However, the widescreen look is matted, but the DVD comes in both widescreen and fullscreen formats. Just check it out!
