Film Review


Rollerball is in many ways the perfect four star sci-fi movie. While it is not at the level of a Star Wars, it is a cut above films such as Logan's Run or Soylent Green. It is both dated and futuristic. The filmmaking and acting are very 70s, yet well-done and have a charm (in some ways reminiscent of classic Star Trek). While the film does feature action segments, it is more about the concept world (material utopia, spiritual dystopia) and the quiet hero. Rollerball is a must-see for fans of intelligent sci-fi.

4.25 / 5.0
