Movie Reviews

A Nice Surprise
SRFireside | 10/04/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll be honest, like many of you Dean Cain fans (namely the women)I rented this movie because Dean is the most beautiful man alive. So I went into this movie with a very open mind. To tell you the truth, I really enjoyed the movie. It's a very cool sci-fi, sport, action movie and it's not that bad. At first, it's a little hard to follow, (especially if you're just staring at Dean), but it really makes sense. I guess the plot is a little out there, but so's the future. I mean who knows?-someday the world might be like that. It was good to see Dean play someone other than the sweet and innocent Clark Kent. He's a very talented actor who shouldn't just be remembered as Superman. Vanessa Williams was very good, playing the sassy heroine that knew how to take care of herself. A very believable character. And Wesley Snipes, the comic relief, helped the movie by adding a dash of humor to all the action. If you like, sci-fi, Future Sport is perfect for you-there is more to it than Dean Cain."
Seconds parts dilemma!

"Once upon a time a film whose title was Rollerball; directed by Norman Jewison and superbly starred by James Caan.

Two generations after in 1998 came Future sport, a picture which remains in the middle of the road respect its final intentions. Witch such fragile script and stylized characters where the emotional coordinates are blended with some here and there violent moments, the film does not achieve even a median stature.

The presence of Wesley snipes was the only reason to watch it, but pitifully he was absolutely wasted in a secondary role.

Too much noise and few walnuts.

"I liked this movie, it has Dean Cain which is a major plus. It has lots of action and the game was very interesting. The plot could have been a little better. Loved Wesley Snipes' character. He was great as the leader of the down zone. I would recommend it to any one who loved sports, conflicts and a good fight for what is right."
The way of the world...

"Futuresport is an electrically charged combination ice hockey-basketball game that is invented to prevent gang violence - territory disputes are settled by which team wins the game. Ten years after its world-wide exploitation, Futuresport is THE game on the planet and Tre Ramsey its #1 star. But it is only utilized as a sporting event, until Tre Ramsey gets the idea the world could return to its basic premise for the game, at least for now: settling land disputes. The land under dispute is the Hawaiian Islands, which North America wants to retain, yet the HLO - Hawaiian Liberation Organization - wants to reclaim as independent. HLO's method of liberation is through acts of terrorism, and also through the targeted assassination of the most famous part-Hawaiian in the world - Tre Ramsey - someone who has been vocally against the methods utilized by the HLO. Tre is targeted as a "traitor." The #2 target of assasination is Tre's old girlfriend, a journalist who's politically active against HLO and had originally promoted Futuresport and Tre Ramsey into prominence years earlier. The climax of the film is a North American Alliance game of Futuresport against the Pan Pacific Alliance to settle the territory dispute of the Hawaiian Islands, foregoing an all-out war. The plots and intersecting - and numerous - characters are worth watching more than once, just to make sure you get it all. If you're not paying attention, you're going to miss something. The performances are uniformly good; the technology intriguing and fun; Futuresport itself fast-paced. Vanessa Williams is the journalist, and does a fine job, but has a peculiar jaundiced look to her skin, as well as orange-tinted hair, presumably representing the super-chic style of the time. Dean Cain is Tre Ramsey, attired in casual-expensive and sporting a permanently unshaven look. The only real problem with this movie is it's too short at ninety minutes to do the characters and the complexity of the plot the service it deserves. As far as the DVD is concerned, the only extra is the trailer, which is also fast-paced and image-laden."
