Godawful Movie Remakes
Rollerball Slide 1 of 11
Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer: 3%
Yes, that 3% rating is correct. The name and the poster of this godawful 2002 remake say it all. The original 1975 film starred the great James Caan and is generally considered a sci-fi classic.
Unfortunately for this cinematic travesty, the Jimmy Caan caliber actor is (thankfully) nowhere to be found. Instead we get the consistently laughable Chris Klein starring alongside L.L. Cool J, Pink and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos battling in the popular sport of "rollerball," a 21st century mix of basketball, hockey, roller derby, and extreme sports. Television ratings shoot through the roof, a corporate conspiracy is lurking, and plenty of inane, bloody violence ensues.
