    In the not-too-distant future, wars will no longer exist...
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 115 mins
    Retail Price: £19.99
    Release Date:

    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 frustrations of the masses.

    Turned to their televisions, the people watch "Rollerball": a brutal mutation of football, motocross and hockey. Jonathan E. (James Cann) is the champion player - a man too talented for his own good. The corporation has taken away the woman Jonathan loves (Maud Adams) but they can`t take away his soul - even if the diabolical corporate head (John Houseman) tell 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 go!
