Summary Note "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. Tuned to their televisions, the people watch Rollerball: a brutal mutation of football, motocross and hockey. Jonathan E. is the champion player, a man too talented for his own good. The Corporation has taken away the woman Jonathan loves but it can't take away his soul even if diabolical corporate head tells him he'd better retire... or suffer the old-fashioned way. With its surreal imagery and tense action sequences, Rollerball grips you by the heart and never lets you go!--Container.
