Overview
The year is 2018. There are no wars. There is no crime. There is only...the Game. In a world where ruthless corporations reign supreme, this vicious and barbaric "sport" is the only outlet for the pent-up anger and frustration of the masses.

Tuned to their televisions, the people watch "Rollerball": a brutal mutation of football, motocross and hockey. Jonathan E. (James Caan, Misery) is the champion player — a man too talented for his own good. The Corporation has taken away the woman Jonothan loves (Maud Adams, Octopussy) but they can't take away his soul — even if the diabolical corporate head (John Houseman, The Paper Chase) tells him he'd better retire or suffer the old-fashioned way.

With its surrealistic imagery and tense action sequences, Rollerball grips you by the heart — and never lets you go!
