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.
