In a futuristic society where corporations have replaced countries, the violent game of Rollerball is used to control the populace by demonstrating the futility of individuality. However, one player, Jonathan E., rises to the top, fights for his personal freedom, and threatens the corporate control.
In a corporate-controlled future, an ultra-violent sport known as Rollerball represents the world, and one of its powerful athletes is out to defy those who want him out of the game.
This film delievers where other action films fear to tread. It is truly a fantastic Orwellian nightmare, set in a future where all that is bad, is disguised as all that is good. Rollerball, from beginning to unforgettable climax is beyond compare.
'Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt'; mindless distractions, violent entertainment, contentment with the bare necessities of life… that's the efficient ruthless and insidious ruling politics of the corporate elite in the year 2018; the nations are kept sedated into a state of well-being, totally deprived of information, in conclusion subdued to the worst kind of captivity, mental slavery; freedom that comes through knowledge has been traded for comfort, and the Rollerball game has been created to inhibit the individual effort and initiative; Jonathan's 'awakening' and decision to play the game until the end taking the risk of sacrificing his own life is the ultimate heroic gesture against the monolith-corporations and their disguised tyranny, statement underlined in a very discrete yet powerful way; big ups for this excellent prophetic dystopia
Rollerball is a violent sport invented in a future society after a series of devastating corporate wars have left the world's major corporations with a monopoly on basic social services. Energy production, food supplies, water supplies, basic goods & other items are heavily controlled. To keep the masses from revolting, Rollerball was introduced. In the game, players wear roller skates and race around an inclined circular track, attempting to seize a small steel ball & score goals against the opposing team. Players are assisted by teammates who ride small motorcycles that can tow a player to build up speed. Despite being required to wear body armor & helmets, many players are severely injured or killed during matches. Rules change constantly, as in the last two matches depicted in the film where no substitutions are allowed and no penalties are called, even if a player cheats or commits another act of obvious unsportsmanlike conduct. The corporate directorate (a sort of board of directors) felt threatened by Jonathan's increasing popularity in the sport, which they felt may contribute to a rising feeling of individualism among the general population, a concept they were trying to discourage. By providing Rollerball, the corporate directorate hoped that the masses would be sufficiently distracted from the squalor in their own lives to not think at an individual level. Independent thought would lead to revolt and the possible loss of power. The hit United Artists film, Rollerball, opened in Chicago at the McClurg Court Theatre, 330 East Ohio Street, on Thursday, June 26, 1975. The film was rated "R." An ad reads: "Wars Will No Longer Exist . . . But There Will Be Rollerball!"<br/><br/>_________________________________ Rollerball is played by 2 teams over three 20 minute periods. Each team has a dozen players with 9 on roller-skates and three riding motorcycles. A steel ball is shot into a circular arena with an outer and inner zone. One of the teams must recover the ball and then attempt to place it in their goal at the side of the stadium, the ball held in plain view at all times. If the ball strays into the inner zone it is out of play and a new ball is fired. The roller-skaters hang on to the motorbikes to give them momentum and block other players.
