    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Say this for the soundtrack, it drowns out the lousy dialogue. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Remarkably empty, remarkably noisy, remarkably pleasureless. It's unwatchable. show more

    The word on Rollerball is "troubled," though troubled is what you call a high school junior with 50 snakes under his bed. Catastrophe is more like it. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Gets stupider as it moves along. By the end, you just don't care whether that cold-hearted snake Petrovich (that would be Reno) gets his comeuppance. Just bring on the Battle Bots, please! show more

    Some movies should never have been made, and high on that list is the addled new remake of Rollerball. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    This oddly scrambled new version eventually falls apart so badly you feel embarrassed for the people who made it. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The most depressing thing about this movie is not that it's such a complete waste of time, but that there are people in Hollywood who think this kind of thing is what American movie-goers are interested in seeing. show more
