Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

This glossy, unimaginative sci-fi action drama borrows so liberally from the far superior Rollerball as to appear totally redundant. In the future, a violent game is created - a sort of amalgam of basketball and rugby played on levitating skateboards with an electrified ball - in a bid to ease gang tensions. The trio of stars - Dean Cain (The New Adventures of Superman), Vanessa L Williams and Wesley Snipes (who also acts as executive producer) add much needed lustre to Ernest Dickerson's join-the-dots direction. If you like dark, futuristic films such as Demolition Man, you may find something satisfying here.
