About Rollerball

Jonathan Cross (Chris Klein) is an all-American hotshot, the most popular player in the fastest and most extreme sport of all time: Rollerball. Along with teammates Marcus Riley (LL Cool J) and Aurora (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos), Jonathan is living the high life: fame, money, incredible cars-all for giving viewers what they want: a dangerous game packed with visceral thrills, breakneck speed, and head-slamming action. But things go wrong when Rollerball's creator, Petrovich (Jean Reno), realizes that serious on-court accidents bring higher ratings. He begins bribing members of various teams to cause more trouble than necessary on the court, and the fans love it. Soon Jonathan and his friends are trapped in Petrovich's manipulations, playing for their lives in a new game without any rules.
