Then Juliette hits the tub in kind of a funny clip. Those boobs are a little bloody. Caps with a clip.

Then an actress billed only as Tula. This was the opening scene in the movie, no nudity, but I am a leg man and she has legs. Caps with a clip.

Scoop's notes (written in 2003):

There is good news and bad news with the Rollerball DVD. The bad news: the film on the DVD is Rollerball. The good news: at least it is the r-rated version.

Boy, am I a schmuck! When I heard that they were remaking Rollerball, I thought it was a great idea. It matches my major remake criterion perfectly, since the original was an average movie with great potential unfulfilled. Furthermore, director John McTiernan is the guy who did Die Hard, and he had recently done a great job at taking another average old movie, The Thomas Crown Affair, and improving upon it. The stars seemed to be in proper alignment for another success.

When I hoped for a Rollerball remake, I never considered the downside. The first Rollerball was also a movie that wasn't as bad as it could have been, and John McTiernan is also the same guy who made Nomads (my review linked) . He has about as wide a range as any director in history.

  1. (8.30) - Die Hard (1988)
  2. (7.80) - Predator (1987)
  3. (7.60) - The Hunt for Red October (1990)
  4. (7.40) - Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995)
  5. (6.70) - The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)
  6. (6.30) - The 13th Warrior (1999)
  7. (6.30) - Basic (2003)
  8. (5.80) - Last Action Hero (1993)
  9. (5.60) - Medicine Man (1992)
  10. (5.54) - Nomads (1986)
  11. (2.71) - Rollerball (2002)

The seeds of McTiernan's incompetence with details were planted even in his good films. Nomads is almost as bad as Rollerball, but not enough people are familiar with it to give it the low score it truly deserves.  Even his better movies can be sloppy. I think that The Hunt for Red October is an exciting and entertaining movie, and should be rated high based on that, but Elya (my Russian girlfriend) and her brother laughed at it all the way through. I mean they were howling out loud. Like "Rollerball," the film portrayed Russians and the Russian language with inaccuracies that could have been eliminated with even the simplest levels of fact-checking, or by hiring even one technical advisor who was familiar with the modern day language and culture. (Starting with the opening title of the movie, which misspells "Hunt for Red October" in Russian). In fact Tom Clancy himself, who wrote the eponymous novel, is supposed to be a stickler for accuracy and probably could have tidied up the errors.

Of course, we forgave McTiernan for his lack of cultural sensitivity that time, because Red October was a good flick. Not this time. I'm afraid that the Rollerball remake went over to the dark side. It is astounding in its complete ineptitude.  No film on his list, not even the dreadful Nomads, is as bad as this. 

This flick is totally fucked up. If I had an Ebert scale, I would have given it no stars - and normally I'd give two stars just for Rebecca Romijn being naked!

The first and foremost problem is the style. The problem is that the film must have more than a thousand cuts. I timed a randomly-selected two minutes with forty cuts, so that proportion would suggest about 2000 cuts in a 100 minute film. The director must have shots lots of footage. Unfortunately, it doesn't make any sense when it is put together. It's a long rock video, in both sight and sound.

Then there is the logic of the action. In the future, all TV ratings will be seen instantaneously. If the ratings are hovering around 7, the owners decide to kill somebody off with a violent accident, and the ratings jump up instantaneously to 20.  So, you might fairly ask - how did that additional 13% know to turn on the TV? This is similar to the old gag where the announcer says "OK, kids, if you're not watching me now, please turn on your set, because you don't want to miss what's coming next".

Then there is the casting of Jean Reno and Chris Klein. Jean Reno plays a guy named Alexi Petrovich. How many things are wrong just with that simple opening sentence? First of all, Petrovich is a middle name, not a last name. It is an formulaic name, not a given one. Russian middle names automatically show the father's name. If your father is named Ivan Gorbachev, and your name is Dmitri, then your name is Dmitri Ivanovich Gorbachev.  Second of all, Jean Reno as a Russian who speaks like Pepe le Pew? Why not just change his name to Renoir or something French? (Or, and this is wild - why not hire a Russian guy or a guy who can convincingly impersonate a Russian?) Klein plays a tough-as-nails action hero. What were they thinking of?  Chris is a sweet puppydog kind of guy with a "whoa, dude" surfer boy accent that never disappears. I like him in his coming-of-age comedies, but he doesn't belong here as a tough guy. I don't want to say he's a candy-ass, but I did notice that the back of his jeans says Hershey instead of Levi.

Even the nudity is screwed up. The director did have enough sense to get Rebecca Romijn naked. Unfortunately, he forgot to remove the lens cap when he filmed her.

Connie Ogle of the Miami Herald summed it up pretty well:

"Dreadful acting, confusing action cinematography, choppy editing and embarrassing dialogue."

Or maybe you prefer James Sanford of the Kalamazoo Gazette

"If it were any more of a turkey, it would gobble in Dolby Digital stereo. If nothing else, Rollerball 2002 may go down in cinema history as the only movie ever in which the rest of the cast was outshined by LL Cool J."

Or maybe you prefer Glenn Lovell of the San Jose Mercury News

 "Not so much a redo of the 1975 sci-fi allegory of the same title as a denial of everything that made that film timely and interesting."
