I came for the hopefully chuckleworthy roller-violence and stayed for the low-key dystopia. Sure, the movie is slow and we're not really stimulated to get invested emotionally, but I actually enjoyed the simplicity of it all. Not showing how the 'common man' lives makes sense, since the protagonist is too entrenched himself. A brilliant detail to show how all-encompassing The Corporate World is in this setting: using only one (easily recognizable) font for everything. Great final minutes.

Skate-rugby is, contrary to popular belief, extremely serious business.

When the remake came out, I hadn't a clue that this existed, and when I watched it I didn't realize that it had a social statement to make at all. Upon watching this one the scales fell away from my eyes. Good sci-fi movie, alright message, but it's still a sports movie and can only be so good.

An underrated, ahead-of-its-time sci-fi actioner set in the 21st century. This exciting if overlong version of William Harrison's _The Rollerball Murders_ really needs to be seen on the big screen to be appreciated, but it's interesting to consider how this fictionally predated real-life TV shows like "American Gladiators".
