Rollerball (2002)

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about this movie the other day and I really hope they get around to talking about this at some point because its fucking crazy. Both the movie itself and the strange story of John Mctiernan. 

It's insane to think that the director of classics like Predator, Die Hard, Hunt for Red October etc. Also directed a movie that he thought would be aided with the addition of night vision cameras for an what amounts to like 10% of the movies runtime. 

Theres also the fact that people went to prison over concern about where the direction of this movie was heading. The thought of him sitting in a jail cell and explaining to his cell mate that the reason he's there is because he really wanted to go a different way with Rollerball, is pretty goddamn magical.

I remember seeing the trailer and thinking this was going to be the best, most extreme thing ever. that it would even create a new sport for the x-games or something. boy was i wrong
