A pretty good action-movie
11 May 1999 | by Sisko H.See all my reviews

Futuresport is a movie with famous actors and actresses, e.g Wesley Snipes. The direction is not bad, but the special effects are great for a TV movie. The idea of this movie is not very interesting and intelligent, but the movie has a good atmosphere and is amusing. If you want to watch a movie without any intelligent content, you should watch Futuresport. Marking: *** (******)
